Moncada, Detwiler lead White Sox over Rangers 6-1

CHICAGO (AP) Yoan Moncada jumped right back into the White Sox lineup with a bang - and an embarrassing thud he laughed off with teammates.

Moncada lined a two-run homer his return from the injured list, Ross Detwiler struck out a career-high eight and Chicago beat the Texas Rangers 6-1 Thursday night. James McCann hit a solo shot and doubled, and Jose Abreu, Tim Anderson and Matt Skole each had an RBI as Chicago won for the third time in four games.

Out since July 31 with a strained right hamstring, Moncada batted cleanup and made an immediate impact with his 21st homer as the White Sox jumped to an early five-run lead. He also doubled in the fifth, but gave the club a scare when he fell awkwardly exiting the batter's box as he grounded out to end the seventh.
