    Chicago White Sox's Alex Rios, right, celebrates with A.J. Pierzynski after hitting a two-run home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers during the fourth inning.

    Mark Buehrle threw seven strong innings to become the career victories leader in interleague play, Paul Konerko drove in three runs and the Chicago White Sox beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2 on Saturday.

    Buehrle (4-3) allowed seven hits and two runs to win for the third time in four starts, giving him his 24th interleague victory -- breaking his tie with Jamie Moyer atop the career list. He struck out one, and didn't walk anyone for the second time in three starts.

    Alex Rios and Brent Lillibridge homered in Chicago's 15-hit attack, the fifth time this season the White Sox have had at least that many. They broke it open with a six-run fourth against former teammate Jon Garland (1-4).

    Garland allowed 11 hits and seven runs in 3 2-3 innings.
