For the second time in the last 13 days, your Chicago White Sox picked up a victory. And if I may say so myself, they did so in a very nice fashion.
The Danks of Old
In his fourth start back from shoulder surgery, John Danks looked like the John Danks of old. He did get off to a rough start, letting up a run in the first inning and a leadoff single in the second inning...
John Danks pitched three-hit ball over eight innings for his first victory in more than a year, and the Chicago White Sox won for just the second time in 12 games, beating the surging Oakland Athletics 4-1 on Saturday.
Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko homered. Alex Rios drove in the go-ahead run, and the White Sox handed the Athletics just their fourth loss in 22 games.

Outside of the lackluster defense and incompetent offense, the main trend of April for the White Sox was injuries. While fans have had to wait patently for some of the team's more prominent names to return, it looks like the waiting process is finally dwindling down.
