CHICAGO, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Alejandro De Aza coaxed a bases-loaded walk in the seventh-inning Saturday, rallying the Chicago White Sox past Kansas City 5-4.

The White Sox had erased a one-run deficit earlier in the frame on Carlos Quentin's RBI double to score Juan Pierre.

Quentin went 3-for-4, Paul Konerko added a two-run clout and Tyler Flowers contributed his first major league home run as the Chisox ended a seven-game home losing streak.

Jesse Crain (7-3) earned the win with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief and Chris Sale tossed a perfect ninth to rack up his fourth save of the season.

Kansas City's Luke Hochevar (8-9) was touched for five runs on eight hits over six-plus innings.

The Royals lost for the seventh time in nine games despite a two-run single from Billy Butler.
