CHICAGO — Melky Cabrera doubled twice and drove in two runs, Miguel Gonzalez pitched six strong innings after securing a rotation spot and the Chicago White Sox beat the Washington Nationals 3-1 Thursday night to snap a five-game skid.

Gonzalez (1-1) won his first game with Chicago after losing seven straight decisions dating to last season with Baltimore. The right-hander retired the first 12 batters he faced, giving up three hits and a run.

The White Sox gave Gonzalez the No. 5 starting spot after designating Mat Latos for assignment before the game.

Brett Lawrie added an RBI double in a three-run first off Gio Gonzalez (3-5), who struck out 10 in 6 2/3 innings.

Daniel Murphy hit a solo homer in the fifth for the Nationals, whose three-game winning streak was snapped.
