CHICAGO (AP) — Tim Anderson’s go-ahead triple drove in two runs as the Chicago White Sox scored three times in the sixth inning and went on to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-3 on Friday night.

The White Sox, who ended a four-game losing streak, mounted the entire rally with two outs. After Jose Abreu singled and Daniel Palka walked, Anderson’s liner dropped in front Christian Yelich, then got by the Brewers left fielder and rolled to the wall, allowing Abreu and Palka to score. Omar Narvaez followed with an RBI single.

Yolmer Sanchez and Palka added RBI singles as Chicago tacked on two more runs in the seventh against reliever Dan Jennings to pull away. The White Sox, who entered with the worst record in the majors, rallied from an early three-run deficit to post their 12th come-from-behind win.

Five White Sox relievers combined for 5 2/3 of hitless ball, with the second, Luis Avilan (2-0) recording one out in the sixth to earn the win. Joakim Soria, Bruce Rondon and Nate Jones each followed with a hitless inning.

Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer for the Brewers, whose lead over the second-place Cubs in the NL Central dropped to three games.

Anderson is 10 for 26 in his last five games with four homers, 10 RBIs and seven runs scored.

Brewers starter Chase Anderson (4-4) allowed four runs and five hits through 5 2/3 innings in a second straight rough outing.

White Sox starter Hector Santiago gave up three runs on five hits and five walks before being replaced by Chris Volstad with one out in the fourth and the game tied at 3. Volstad tossed 2 1/3 hitless innings.

Braun homered to right-center in the first with Yelich on first to put Milwaukee ahead 2-0.

The Brewers extended their lead to 3-0 in the third on Hernan Perez’s sac fly to center.

The White Sox tied it with three runs the bottom of the inning.

Adam Engel led off with a double, then scored on Charlie Tilson’s single. Tilson came home when Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw threw wide after fielding Trayce Thompson’s grounder. Thompson advanced to second on the error and scored on Moncada’s single.

WELCOME BACK

White Sox reliever Danny Farquhar, who had a brain hemorrhage during a game on April 20, threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Joined by his teammates, family and medical caregivers on the infield, the Farquhar made a low-and-away toss to fellow reliever Jones as the crowd of 20,004 and the Brewers gave him in a standing ovation.

It was the first time Farquhar threw a baseball since he suffered the ruptured aneurysm, underwent surgery and spent 18 days in the hospital. Farquhar won’t pitch again this season, but has been cleared to start throwing.

ROSTER MOVES

Milwaukee recalled INF/OF Ji-Man Choi was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Choi has had two previous stints this year with the Brewers, hitting .267 with a solo homer in 17 plate appearances. ... Milwaukee outrighted C Jett Bandy to Triple-A after designating him for assignment last week.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Brewers: RH starter Zach Davies was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right rotator cuff inflammation. The move is retroactive to May 30, when Davies allowed five runs over five innings in a 6-1 loss to St. Louis. Davies, who spent three-plus weeks on the DL in May for the same injury, is 2-5 with a 5.23 ERA after going a team-best 17-9 last year. Manager Craig Counsell expects Davies’ return to the DL to be short. ... 1B Eric Thames (torn ligament in left thumb) took batting practice at the team’s spring training facility in Phoenix on Friday for the first time since undergoing surgery on April 27. He could begin a rehab assignment next week.

UP NEXT

Brewers RHP Jhoulys Chacin (3-1, 3.69) faces White Sox righty James Shields (1-5, 4.54) on Saturday. Chacin allowed five runs in 6 1/3 innings against the Mets last Sunday in a no-decision, but is 3-0 with a 2.90 ERA in his last nine starts. Shields hasn’t won through 11 starts since opening day at Kansas City.
