CHICAGO -- Wade Miley pitched seven strong innings, Cody Ross had three hits and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Chicago White Sox 4-3 Saturday night. Miley (3-3) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out six and not allowing a walk. His only mistake came on an 0-1 pitch in the fifth inning that Paul Konerko hit over the left-field fence for a two-run home run. Former White Sox closer Addison Reed flirted with disaster in his first meeting against his former team before getting his 11th save in 12 chances. Reed, who was traded to the Diamondbacks from the White Sox in the off-season, gave up a leadoff single to pinch-hitter Conor Gillaspie, who ended up scoring on Alexei Ramirezs two-out single. Ramirez stole second but was stranded after Reed got Konerko to bounce out to second. The White Sox lost for just the second time in seven games. White Sox starter Jose Quintana (1-3) went six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and a walk. The left-hander was done in by a rough fifth inning. Alfredo Marte hit an RBI double in the fifth and scored on A.J. Pollocks single. Martin Prado extended the Diamondbacks lead to 3-0 with an RBI sacrifice fly. The Diamondback hitters worked the count, forcing Quintana to throw 29 pitches in the inning. Miley faced the minimum through the first four innings. He consistently got ahead of White Sox hitters and got help from a double play in the fourth. Konerkos homer was his first of the season and 435th of his career, moving him past Juan Gonzalez and Andruw Jones for 43rd on the career home run list. Konerko, playing his 18th and final season, has been used as a bench player. He was playing first base for Jose Abreu, who is nursing an ankle injury while hitting in the DH spot. Abreu was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts after going 3 for 4 with a home run in Fridays win. Arizona picked up an insurance run in the seventh. With the bases loaded and one out, Miguel Montero lined a single off the mitt of right fielder Moises Sierra to give Arizona a 4-2 lead. White Sox reliever Zach Putnam escaped further damage by getting Aaron Hill to ground into a double play. NOTES: Before the game, White Sox LHP Chris Sale threw a successful simulated game.

But Whaley says the Bills arent actively pursuing a trade.We like Mike Williams, we expect him back and we expect big things from him, Whaley said. But like anybody, if he gets me compensation worthy of a No. 1 wide receiver, which he claimed he is, then we would entertain it.Williams was not present in the locker room Monday when reporters were allowed access. A message left with Englehard was not immediately returned.Williams was surprisingly inactive for Sundays 37-22 loss to the New England Patriots. Williams started the Bills first four games.Bills coach Doug Marrone said the decision was made to deactivate Mike Williams when the team learned late last week that defensive tackle Kyle Williams would be healthy enough to play after missing the previous game with an ankle injury.By that time, we had put so much in game plan-wise for a three tight end package that we practice quite a bit, Marrone said.I brought Mike in on Saturday and I told him I needed him to do this for the team. I said, Its not a great situation, but its due to the special teams and everything that we needed to cover. We talked to him and he handled it like a pro and hell be ready to go next week.The Bills (3-3) acquired Williams in April for a sixth-round draft choice in a trade with Tampa Bay. He has eight catches for 142 yards and a touchdown in five games this season.Williams, a Buffalo native, said at the time it was a dream come true to be traded to his hometown team.Marrone was the coach at Syracuse when Williams abruptly quit the team in November 2009 during his junior season.Whaley said there have been no conflicts between Williams and Marrone this season.Hes been a great addition to our program, Whaley said.

The team changed quarterbacks two weeks ago and the franchise itself was recently sold to Terry and Kim Pegula.The running game, a perceived strength coming into the season, has struggled. The Bills have been held under 100 yards rushing in four straight games and have only two rushing TDs this year.Weve got to go back and get this going again, Marrone said. You put so much emphasis on the other stuff, you improve and then all the sudden you take something that was your strength - that I believed was our strength - and it does down. And thats what you cant have.Starting running back C.J. Spiller rushed six times for 19 yards against the Patriots and lost a fumble. Spiller was on the field for just 12 snaps, his lowest since the 2011 season.Its not one individual, Marrone said. Its easy when its one individual. You just put one out and put somebody else in. But its up front, its hitting the holes, its believing and rusting the scheme.On defence, the Bills now rank No. 1 in the league against the run, allowing 67.5 yards per game. But they allowed Tom Brady to pass for 361 yards, the most allowed by the Bills since Brady threw for 387 on Sept. 25, 2011.NOTES: The Bills have held opponents under 90 yards rushing in each of the first six games, the longest streak since a six-game stretch from Sept. 22 through Nov. 3, 1996, according to STATS. .
