John Danks feels like he’s on a roll. But the White Sox veteran pitcher hadn’t been rewarded until Wednesday night. Sharp for a third straight start, the left-hander picked up his first win in a month as the White Sox topped the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 in front of 45,540 at Dodger Stadium. Leury Garcia and Adam Dunn both hit solo home runs and Danks (4-5) and three relievers combined on a two-hitter as the White Sox earned a series victory with their second straight win. Ronald Belisario picked up his fifth save with a perfect ninth inning. “I felt like I was able to make a pitch when I needed to,” said Danks, who has lowered his ERA from 5.64 to 4.32 over his past three starts. “I wasn’t as sharp as I’d like, but I guess you could call it effectively wild. “Feeling good.” Garcia was almost stunned -- and equally pleased -- to learn he had hit the first home run of his career. The utility infielder is known more for his speed and lethal arm, though he has shown pop occasionally.
