Since falling to 3-4 with a 5.64 ERA on May 18, Danks has allowed five runs over 29 1/3 innings in his last four starts, lowering his ERA to 4.17. We'd be more optimistic if he hadn't struck out a modest 17 during the span. It's a given that Danks is going to start allowing more homers again. He can be a decent enough starter for the White Sox, but he's not a mixed-league kind of fantasy pitchers these days.

Gordon scored later in the inning. Danks went 0-3 with a 4.21 ERA over his last four starts, but he'd been afforded just six runs of support over that stretch. It's not like he's been struggling -- Danks gave up only two runs in 15 innings over his last two starts and was 0-1 to show for it. The veteran southpaw, now 4-5 with a 4.32 ERA, looks to stay red hot as he welcomes division rival Detroit to the Windy City on Tuesday.

The veteran southpaw will face the Dodgers next week on the road.
