Recap: Chicago WSox vs. Tampa Bay

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Hanigan hit a two-run double to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Chicago White Sox, 4-0, in the second of a four- game set at U.S. Cellular Field.

James Loney had three hits and an RBI for the Rays, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Cesar Ramos (1-1), Brandon Gomes and Juan Carlos Oviedo combined for the shutout. Ramos tossed five-plus innings in the start and allowed five hits with two walks.

John Danks (2-1) gave up four runs on seven hits and walked four over 5 2/3 innings to absorb the loss, the third in seven games for Chicago.

"I had moments where I was able to throw any one of the four (pitches) over the plate, but none nearly consistently enough," Danks said.

Hanigan delivered with two outs in the second inning, sending a Danks pitch into the left-field corner to plate Loney, who singled, and Logan Forsythe, who drew a walk.

"I wanna hit. I feel good with my swing, attacking balls in the zone, attacking good pitches," Hanigan said.

The Rays extended their lead in the third on Loney's two-out single that scored Wil Myers.

Chicago threatened in the fifth, but Ramos pitched out of a bases-loaded jam. Jose Abreu, who belted a walk-off grand slam in the ninth on Friday, grounded out to end the frame.

Desmond Jennings added an RBI triple with two outs in the sixth for Tampa Bay.
