    Yolmer Sanchez hit a two-run home run with two outs in the eighth to rally the Chicago White Sox to a 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

    The Rangers had the bases loaded in the ninth, but David Robertson (4-2) struck out Carlos Gomez to end the game.

    Todd Frazier walked with one out in the eighth and, two batters later, Sanchez drove the ball to right-center off Texas reliever Jose Leclerc (1-2) for his fourth homer of the season. It handed the Rangers bullpen its American League(equals)leading 17th blown save.

    Jonathan Lucroy had given the Rangers a 5-4 lead with a two-run single in the fifth.

    Melky Cabrera also homered for Chicago -- hitting his ninth in the first -- and Mike Napoli hit his 16th for Texas.

    White Sox starter Jose Quintana had his shortest outing since May 30, giving up five runs in 4 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out five. Quintana had thrown 19 scoreless innings before giving up a run in the third inning.

    The Rangers got a gift run from the White Sox in the fourth inning when Robinson Chirinos stole second, and Chicago made two throwing errors on the play -- one by the catcher and one by the center fielder -- to allow Chirinos to score.

    Texas starter Tyler Ross gave up four runs in five innings, and walked five.
