Loaiza gave up two of the three runs in the first two innings on a Shawn Green home run and Paul Lo Duca inside-the-park homer, which was initially charged as a double and two-base error on Magglio Ordonez. Lo Duca hit the ball down the right field line, off the field-box facade, leaving little time for Ordonez to recover.
Dodgers' starter Odalis Perez kept the Sox hit-less until the fourth inning, when four straight singles by D'Angelo Jimenez, Tony Graffanino, Frank Thomas and Ordonez scored a run while loading the bases. Carlos Lee then grounded into a double play, scoring the tying run.
Tied 2-2, the Sox ran away in the fifth with five runs, two coming from a Thomas homer. A Jimenez groundout scored the go-ahead run and a Graffanino double scored two.
The Sox put the final runs up in the seventh on Lee's 10th homer of the year, a three-run shot, putting the Sox up 10-3. Lee went 2-5.
Graffanino, playing short in place of Jose Valentin, went 3-5 with three runs scored and two RBIs, while Thomas went 2-3, raising his batting average to .288, the highest it has been since April 2.
The Sox have Monday off and will start a three-game set against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. CT, with Jon Garland going up against Jason Williams. The game will be televised on WCIU.
