   CHICAGO (AP) -- Jordan Danks hit a clutch two-run single in Chicago's three-run eighth inning, leading the White Sox to a 4-3 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.
 
   Danks finished with a career-high three hits as the White Sox won for the ninth time in 11 games, bouncing back from a difficult loss in the series opener. Paul Konerko, Alexei Ramirez and Avisail Garcia had two hits apiece.
 
   Matt Dominguez had three hits and two RBIs for the Astros, who had won three of four. Dominguez and Chris Carter hit consecutive two-out homers off closer Addison Reed to give Houston a 10-8 victory on Monday night.
 
   The Astros appeared to be headed to their second straight victory over the White Sox before the rally in the eighth.
 
   With two outs and runners on first, Konerko singled in Jeff Keppinger to cut Houston's lead to 3-2. Garcia's infield hit then loaded the bases for Danks, who put the White Sox in front with a single to center.
 
   Reed then came in and worked the ninth for his 36th save in 41 tries. Robbie Grossman had a two-out double for his third hit, but Reed got L.J. Hoes to bounce out to shortstop to end the game.
 
   Donnie Veal (2-3) got one out for the win.
 
   White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana allowed three runs and eight hits over 7 2-3 innings in his 16th no-decision, tops in the major leagues.
