Conor Gillaspie and Alejandro De Aza homered in the seventh inning and the Chicago White Sox ended a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
Chris Sale (3-2) settling down after a rough second inning to make it through seven. The left-hander struck out seven and walked two.
Texas managed only two runs in the second despite a homer, three singles and a walk. Sale then faced only one batter over the minimum 15 the next five innings, benefiting in one from a double play he started.
Gillaspie's homer leading off the seventh against rookie right-hander Nick Tepesch (2-2) broke a 2-all tie.  Tyler Flowers snapped an 0-for-17 slide with a single before De Aza's fifth homer of the season.
