The slumping White Sox had managed a total of six runs in their previous four games.

Viciedo, who was just 2 for 23 on the homestand before Tuesday, went 2 for 4. His fifth-inning blast ended a stretch of 51 at-bats without an RBI.

Danks (6-5) settled down after a somewhat slow start and gave up two runs -- one earned -- and five hits in 6 1-3 innings. In his last five starts, the left-hander is 3-1 with a 1.51 ERA.

Hunter Pence went 2 for 4 with a home run for the Giants, who have dropped four straight and seven of eight. Giants starter Matt Cain (1-5) allowed eight runs -- seven earned -- and 10 hits in five innings.
