Jason Vargas kept the White Sox to two runs over five innings but didn't factor in the decision Saturday.
Vargas held the Sox offense basically in check save for Melky Cabrera, who got to the southpaw for a solo homer in the third inning before doubling in another run in the fifth. Vargas was very good against the non-Cabrera White Sox, though, scattering seven hits and a walk overall. It was a good rebound from a pair of poor performances his last two times out. With Saturday's showing, the 34-year-old remains 12-4 with a 3.08 ERA and 1.24 WHIP heading into Friday's clash with the Red Sox. Jul 23 - 12:27 AM
