LOS ANGELES -- Hector Noesi said he wasn't thinking about the losing streak, but Chicago manager Robin Ventura and the rest of the White Sox were.
First baseman Jose Abreu and catcher Tyler Flowers homered, and Noesi ended one of the longest winless droughts in the majors as the White Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.
Noesi snapped a personal 14-game losing streak as the White Sox (30-30) halted the Dodgers' four-game interleague winning streak. Los Angeles (31-29) lost for the fifth time in seven games.
"I was not thinking about the win," said Noesi, who won for the first time since he beat the Minnesota Twins while pitching for the Seattle Mariners on May 6, 2012, a span of 40 games (18 starts). "I was just trying to control myself. You have to do whatever you have to do to do good. Trust in you. That's what I was trying to do."
Noesi (1-4) was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on April 25 after the Texas Rangers released him. He opened the season with the Mariners.
Noesi limited the Dodgers to a run on five hits. He struck out six and walked four, throwing 104 pitches (66 strikes) in six innings.
"He threw great," Ventura said. "You're happy for him. We're glad we won, but we're happy for him, seeing everything he's been through. Pitching the way he did tonight was icing on the cake.
"Watching him, it's hard to fathom that (the losing streak) with the way he's pitched for us. It's good to get that off his back, and hopefully he just keeps going."
Flowers said Noesi's off-speed pitches made him effective against Los Angeles.
"We were trying to execute pitches," Flowers said. "He did a good job of picking his spots. He's got a few weapons even though he doesn't throw hard. He changes speeds well, and he can make the ball move every direction. You try to pick up half the plate and stick with that."
Relievers Scott Downs, Jake Petricka and Zach Putnam combined to hold Los Angeles to one hit before former Dodger Ronald Belisario retired the side in the ninth for his fourth save.
The Dodgers stranded 12 runners compared to three for the White Sox.
"We left a few guys out there," Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said. "We had some chances, but didn't do a whole lot with them."
Abreu went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs, making him 3-for-8 with two home runs and five RBIs in the series. He came off the disabled list Monday after missing 15 days due to an ankle injury.
"He's doing all right. I think we'll keep him," Ventura joked. "A lot was made about his timing and hitting going back out there, but he's got talent. You've got to have him in the lineup."
Dodgers starter Dan Haren (5-4) worked six innings, allowing four runs on six hits. He struck out two and walked one on 94 pitches (59 strikes).
Abreu put the White Sox on the board in the first with a two-run blast to left, his 17th homer of the season. Abreu became the first White Sox player to homer in consecutive games at Dodger Stadium since Frank Thomas did so June 7-8, 2003. Abreu went deep off left-hander Clayton Kershaw on Monday.
After a walk to Haren loaded the bases with one out in the second, second baseman Dee Gordon lifted a sacrifice fly to left to score left fielder Matt Kemp, cutting Los Angeles' deficit to 2-1.
Abreu drove in center fielder Adam Eaton on a fielder's choice in the third for a 3-1 White Sox advantage.
In the fourth, Flowers hit a solo home run to right on a full count with two outs for a 4-1 Chicago cushion.
Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig was 2-for-4 with a double on the one-year anniversary of his major league debut. Puig was honored earlier Tuesday as the National League's Player of the Month for May.
