CHICAGO (AP) — Even with three errors, the Houston Astros managed to beat the Chicago White Sox 11-7 Sunday.
Matt Dominguez hit a two-run homer and a tiebreaking RBI double, and the Astros tied their season high with 17 hits as they prevented a three-game sweep.
Second baseman Jose Altuve made a pair of errors and first baseman Jon Singleton had one, with each infielder allowing a grounder through his legs.
"It's part of the game," manager Bo Porter said. "Obviously, Altuve is a guy who's pretty sure-handed, but it happens. But it's good to see the rest of the team pick those guys up."
Altuve hit a two-run homer for the Astros (41-58), who find themselves 1 1-2 games ahead of last-place Texas in the AL West.
"We battled through that game," said Dominguez, had three hits and four RBIs. "It was nice to go out there and get a win like that."
Chicago fell behind 4-0 early and tied the score 7-all in the sixth on Alexei Ramirez's RBI double, Jose Abreu's run-scoring single and a run-scoring two-out grounder by Dayan Viciedo that went Altuve's legs for Houston's second error of the inning.
Daniel Webb (5-3) allowed RBI doubles in the seventh to Dominguez and L.J. Hoes, and Marwin Gonzalez followed with a two-run single.
Tony Sipp (2-1) pitched 1-1 scoreless innings as Houston stopped a three-game skid. Josh Fields and Chad Qualls got three straight outs each.
Houston's Jarred Cosart allowed four runs, seven hits and four walks in five innings.
John Danks lasted a season-low 4 1-3 innings, giving up a season-high 12 hits and seven runs. On May 18, he allowed eight runs — seven earned — and 10 hits over 4 2-3 innings in an 8-2 home loss to Chicago.
"Dug us a hole. These guys fought hard to get out of it," Danks said. "For whatever reason, Houston has beat me up this year, so fortunately, we're done with that."
