CHICAGO (AP) -Jose Contreras got his first win as a starter in two months and rookie Josh Fields put the White Sox ahead with Chicago's fourth home run of the seventh inning in a 5-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Monday.
Contreras (7-16), who leads the major league in losses, had dropped nine straight starts since beating Florida on June 18.
Contreras allowed four runs and eight hits in seven innings, improving to 5-0 in his career against Tampa Bay. Bobby Jenks pitched the ninth for his 36th save in 41 chances.
Tampa Bay starter Edwin Jackson took a 4-0 lead into the seventh before A.J. Pierzynski, Jermaine Dye and Juan Uribe homered consecutively to make it 4-3.
Danny Richar doubled to finish Jackson and, one out later, advanced on Dan Wheeler's wild pitch. Wheeler (0-2) fanned Jerry Owens for the second out, but Fields lined his 17th homer to put Chicago ahead.
Tampa Bay's Delmon Young hit his 10th homer after a leadoff walk to B.J. Upton in the third.
