Miguel Gonzalez escaped early trouble and pitched six scoreless innings, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

Saturday's longest home runs
Rougned Odor teed off twice against the White Sox, with his second blast reaching the upper deck in right field at Globe Life Park. A pair of rookies flexed their muscles in Saturday's Red Sox-Yankees tilt while Mike Trout's multihomer game in Baltimore gave him six seasons with at least 25 home runs, tying Tim Salmon's Angels record.
Rougned Odor homered twice, Mike Napoli also went deep, and both had five RBIs as the Texas Rangers overcame an early five-run deficit to beat the Chicago White Sox 17-7 on Saturday night.
