       BOSTON (AP) _ David Ortiz continued to rebound from a miserable stretch with two hits and three RBIs, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 7-6 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday that completed a sweep of their three-game series.
        Stephen Drew added a solo homer for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who won for the seventh time in eight games.
        Ortiz is 5 for 9 with six RBIs since going hitless in his previous 23 at-bats. He needs two hits to become the 39th player in major league history with 2,000 hits, 400 homers and 1,400 RBIs.
        Brandon Workman (4-2) got four outs in relief for the victory after starter Felix Doubront couldn't make it out of the fourth inning. Koji Uehara, the fifth Red Sox reliever, worked a perfect ninth for his 16th save.
        Tyler Flowers had a solo homer and Conor Gillaspie drove in two runs for the White Sox.
