Chicago White Sox's Alexei Ramirez watches his grand slam during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Chicago, Friday.

Ramirez, Abreu power White Sox over D-Backs

CHICAGO – Alexei Ramirez hit a grand slam to fuel Chicago’s seven-run fourth inning and Jose Abreu hit his major league-leading 13th homer and drove in two runs to lead the White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.

Tyler Flowers also homered for the White Sox, who pounded out 15 hits.

Andre Rienzo (3-0) allowed three runs on four hits in 5 2-3 innings.

Brandon McCarthy (1-6) allowed nine hits and seven runs – all in the fourth inning.

Arizona went up 2-0 on Gerardo Parra’s two-run homer in the third inning.
