The Chicago White Sox used home runs from Jose Abreu and Adam Dunn to power past the San Francisco Giants, 7-6, in the finale of a brief two-game set at U.S. Cellular Field.

Dunn crushed a three-run blast and Abreu smashed a two-run shot, while each scored a pair of runs. Tyler Flowers drove in two and Alejandro De Aza was a homer shy of the cycle for the White Sox, who swept the Giants.

Chris Sale (6-1), who wasn't as sharp as normal, allowed three runs on a season-high eight hits while fanning seven in six-plus frames to pick up a win for the first time in his last three outings.

In his worst start of the season, Tim Hudson (7-3) was tagged for a season- high seven runs and 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings to absorb his first loss since May 6.

Buster Posey collected two RBI and Gregor Blanco had three hits with an RBI for the Giants, who have dropped a season-high five straight games and eight of their last nine.
