Juan Uribe homered and drove in two runs for the White Sox. Matt Thornton improved to 3-1 with the win in relief, and Bobby Jenks tossed a scoreless ninth for his 16th save.

Ian Stewart belted two home runs in leading the Rockies. Matt Herges suffered the loss after giving up the winning run in relief.
