St. Dwyane Wade Jersey . Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Jermaine Dye clubbed a two-run homer as part of a 3-for-5 effort at the plate and Bobby Jenks overcame some ninth- inning drama, as the Chicago White Sox held on to defeat Tampa Bay, 3-2, in the first of four meetings at Tropicana Field. Josh Fields had three hits, including a triple, and knocked in a valuable insurance run during Chicagos turn in the ninth that ultimately was the difference in the game. John Danks (1-0) gave up one run on two hits with four walks and eight strikeouts to earn the win for the White Sox, who were ousted by Tampa Bay in the ALDS last season. "Were definitely happy to get a win," Danks said. "Obviously, down here, we havent had much success the last couple of years." Carlos Pena hit a solo homer for the Rays, who have dropped three straight. "Everybodys pointing at the bullpen," said Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon, who was ejected in the sixth. "Its not the bullpen. The bullpen has been pitching pretty well overall. And weve been pitching well, we just have not hit like were capable of." Jeff Niemann (0-2) served up the homer to Dye, one of nine hits Chicago mustered against the right-hander in his six innings on the hill. Three consecutive singles by Brian Anderson, Chris Getz and Fields off Lance Cormier with one away in the top of the ninth plated a much-needed third run for the visitors. Jenks was summoned from the bullpen in the bottom half to protect the 3-1 lead and surrendered a one-out hit to Jason Bartlett, who swiped second with pinch- hitter Akinori Iwamura batting. Iwamura then hit a roller that was bobbled by Getz at second, putting runners on the corners. Iwamura stole second and B.J. Upton walked, loading the bases for Carl Crawford, who grounded into a fielders choice to score Bartlett. Jenks, though, got Gabe Gross to ground out to Paul Konerko at first to notch his third save in as many opportunities. Jim Thome walked to lead off the second and Dye drilled a pitch over the wall in left-center field. Pena put Tampa Bay on the board in the sixth with his fifth home run of the season.

Pierzynski added three hits for Chicago, which has won four of its last five games...Cormier gave up a run on five hits in 2 1/3 innings of work...The Rays were 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position and left 10 men on base.
