CHICAGO — Jose Abreu homered and had three hits, Lucas Giolito tossed six effective innings and the Chicago White Sox rallied from an early deficit for a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.

Abreu went 3 for 3 with a walk and two RBIs. Daniel Palka added a two-run triple for Chicago, which has won two of three.

Jurickson Profar had a double and two RBIs for Texas.

Giolito (3-4) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits in six innings to win his second straight start. The 23-year-old right-hander has allowed three runs or less in four of his last five starts.

Bruce Rondon pitched a scoreless seventh, Jace Fry retired four straight batters and Nate Jones got the final two outs for his third save.

Ariel Jurado (0-1) allowed four runs on six hits in 4 2/3 innings in his major league debut for the Rangers.

Texas jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second on run-scoring doubles by Profar and Rougned Odor. The lead grew to 3-0 in the third on an unearned run following Yoan Moncada’s error.

Jurado retired six of the first seven batters he faced to get through the first two innings smoothly.

After allowing a leadoff double to Omar Narvaez in the bottom of the third, the 22-year-old retired the next two batters and appeared on the verge of escaping unscathed. The final out, though, proved elusive.

Yolmer Sanchez walked before Abreu and Matt Davidson each had a run-scoring single to make it 3-2. Palka then hit a two-run triple off the base of the wall in left-center to put Chicago on top, 4-3.

Abreu’s solo blast in the seventh made it 5-3.

Carlos Rodon began a rehab assignment Saturday night with Class-A Kannapolis. He allowed one run on three hits in five innings.
