CHICAGO -- Chris Sale raced out as the majors first 14-game winner and was the AL starter in the All-Star game. Then the White Sox ace hit a rut and drew attention not for his pitching, but his jersey-shredding tirade.After a masterful eight scoreless innings that produced his first victory in 49 days, Sale acknowledged the importance of what he called getting over the hump.Sale allowed three hits and threw a season-high 120 pitches, Jose Abreu homered and Chicago beat the Oakland Athletics 6-2 on Saturday night.My last few times out I havent been as good as Ive wanted to be or as good as Ive needed to be, the lefty said.Sale (15-6) had gone 0-4 in his previous six starts, interrupted by a five-day suspension for slicing up throwback uniforms he didnt want to wear.He looked like his dominant early season self, retiring the last seven batters, five by strikeout, and working in sync with catcher Dioner Navarro.Hes calling two-seams and four-seams on both sides of the plate. Front-door, back-door breaking balls and stuff like that, Sale said.The White Sox scored four runs with two outs, including Abreus solo shot that just cleared the eight-foot wall and Brett Eibners glove in right in the first inning. Melky Cabrera added an RBI double in the second and a run-scoring single in the fourth off Ross Detwiler (1-2).But the White Sox made it interesting late.With baseball, the tying run usually comes on deck. We do it whether its 2-1 or 6-0, manager Robin Ventura said.Oaklands Danny Valencia homered in a two-run ninth off Nate Jones. David Robertson came in with two on and got the final two outs for his 31st save when Chad Pinder, playing in his first major league game, flied deep to center.I thought it was easily getting over (Adam Eatons) head, As manager Bob Melvin said. From the sound of it and I know his power, you felt like it had a chance to be a home run.Detwiler allowed six runs and 10 hits in four innings in his third start for the banged-up As, who have dropped six of seven.Carlos Sanchez and Tim Anderson added two-out RBI singles for the White Sox a night after they were held to two singles. The White Sox snapped a two-game skid and won for the fourth time in 14 games.Abreu, who has hit safely in 15 of 17 games, also doubled and scored in the third and walked in the fourth.Sale got Khris Davis to hit into a double play with two on in the first. Sale walked three but got stronger as the game went on. He retired 15 of the last 16 batters and hit 96 mph while striking out the side in the seventh. He struck out eight and lowered his ERA to 3.15.Theres a lot of movement on the baseball and his breaking ball does two different things depending on which side of the plate he throws it, Melvin said. Even if you guess right, theres so much movement on it, its tough to square up.TRAINERS ROOMAthletics: RHP Jesse Hahn (shoulder) was supposed to come off the disabled list and start Sunday, but he suffered what he called minor discomfort in a bullpen session. Hell have at least another rehab game, but Im not sure when, Melvin said. ... DH Billy Butler, a .378 career hitter against Sale, was out with a stomach illness.White Sox: 2B Tyler Saladino (back) sat out a second straight game. He could play. Its just better that he gets a little time off, Ventura said. ... OF Avisail Garcia (knee) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. ... Ventura is hopeful C Alex Avila (hamstring) will begin another rehab stint within the week. ... RHP Miguel Gonzalez (groin) hopes to throw off the mound Sunday. ... 2B Brett Lawrie (hamstring, quadriceps) returned to Double-A Birminghams lineup after sitting out two days.PINDER DEBUTSPinder, Oaklands second-round pick in 2013, finished 0 for 4 with two strikeouts.

Hughtons side will be targeting their seventh consecutive win in the Sky Bet Championship when they host top of the table Burnley on Saturday lunchtime, live on Sky Sports 1HD.Currently four points behind with eight games to play, second-placed Brighton remain unbeaten in their past six home matches, and Hughton has credited having experienced players as the reason for their good position in the league. Brighton and Burnleys clash on Saturday is expected to be a sell-out I think its been pivotal for us this season and thats the reason why we started well, he said.We brought some of that experience on early in the pre-season which I felt helped us settle everybody down and give us a little bit more of a focal point and theyve been important for us all season.Its a wonderful position to be in. I look at where we were at this stage last season, its very, very different and these are the type of games, these are the type of challenges that you really want to be involved in. Tomer Hemed scored twice in six minutes against MK Dons to put Brighton into the automatic promotion spots However, despite a good record at home, Hughton has not underestimated his opponents ability to play away from home.ddddddddddddurnley are a fabulous side, he added. They have a system that they know very, very well, theyve got goalscorers and, in particular, Andre Gray who has been outstanding. They just do what they do very well, home or away.The reverse fixture in November ended 1-1, with both goals coming inside the first five minutes.More recently, Burnley have not lost in their last 10 matches, but Hughton is still hopeful they will be able to close the gap to Sean Dyches side. The game on Saturday is a big game because of where we are in the division and certainly at the start of the season our supporters wouldnt have seen this so anything can happen, he said.Its a big one because it means its point they dont get.
