ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 20 (UPI) -- John Danks and Boone Logan combined on a four-hit shutout Sunday to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 6-0 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Four players had one hit each for the Rays, who lost their second straight home series.

The losing pitcher was starter Edwin Jackson (2-2).
