SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. (AP) - Chicago White Sox left-hander John Danks thinks he’s finally finding his groove.

Danks pitched five shutout innings and Carlos Quentin hit his first homer of spring training, but the San Francisco Giants scored four runs in the eighth and went on to a 6-4 victory Thursday.

Giants first baseman Jesus Guzman made a diving stop on a groundball to his right with the bases loaded and two outs in the top of the ninth inning, preventing the tying runs from scoring. He had game-winning home runs in his two previous games.

White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko doubled in a run in a two-run first inning off Giants starter Matt Cain and hit a solo homer in the sixth. He has 10 RBIs.
