    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Avisail Garcia hit two home runs and John Danks took a no-hitter into the sixth inning Sunday as the White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 10-5 in the Rays’ home finale. Garcia’s first homer started a four-run second inning against Rays starter Nathan Karns during which Marcus Semien added a three-run homer for a 4-0 Chicago lead. Garcia led off the sixth with his second home run of the game and his seventh of the season, starting a six-run inning that knocked Karns out of the game. The White Sox followed with four more hits, including Alexei Ramirez’s two-run double off reliever Alex Colome. Rookie Jose Abreu drove in Ramirez with a single for his 105th RBI, giving the White Sox a 10-0 lead. Winning for the first time in 10 starts since July 25, Danks (10-11) gave up two runs on two hits in six innings. Brandon Guyer’s double with one out in the sixth was the first hit for Tampa Bay, which finished with its worst home record (36-45) since 2002. Kevin Kiermaier’s ground ball and Wil Myers’ two-out single drove in the Rays’ runs off Danks. Garcia had three of Chicago’s 12 hits while Semien and Jordan Danks had two each. Karns (1-1) gave up six runs in five innings in his second start for the Rays, who will finish their season with six road games. Their 81st loss assured the Rays of a non-winning season for the first time since 2007.
