CHICAGO, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Josh Fields hit a two-run homer in a four-homer, five-run seventh inning Monday as the Chicago White Sox rallied past Tampa Bay 5-4.

The White Sox were trailing 4-0 before A.J. Pierzynski, Jermaine Dye and Juan Uribe hit consecutive homers off Devil Rays starter Edwin Jackson to pull within one.

Danny Richar's double to right chased Jackson. Dan Wheeler (1-6) came on and struck out Andy Gonzalez and Jerry Owens before Fields homered over the left-field fence.

Mike MacDougal retired Tampa Bay in order in the eighth inning and Bobby Jenks did the same in the ninth for his 36th save. The rally made a winner of Jose Contreras (7-16), who got his first victory as a starter since June 18.

Contreras gave up four runs on eight hits and struck out eight over seven innings. Jackson yielded four runs on nine hits in six-plus inning.

Delmon Young had a two-run homer for Tampa Bay.
