(Newser) – The Chicago White Sox staved off elimination today with solid starting pitching and a fastball that left Evan Longoria looking, reports. John Danks held the Tampa Bay Rays to 3 runs over 6 2/3 innings in the 5-3 victory. When a two-run homer by B.J. Upton got Danks pulled in the seventh, reliever Octavio Dotel squelched the Rays' rally by striking out superstar Longoria.
