The Nationals' Trea Turner (7) celebrate his home run with Anthony Rendon during the fifth inning of Monday nights's game against the White Sox in Chicago. Washington won 11-2. 

CHICAGO — Trea Turner homered in the second straight game, Aníbal Sánchez pitched into the seventh and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago White Sox 12-1 on Monday night.

Turner tripled and scored in the third, went deep against Odrisamer Despaigne leading off the fifth and added an RBI double in the seventh. He also struck out leading off the game and in the eighth and popped out in the ninth.

Sánchez (2-6) gave up one run and four hits. He left after James McCann singled leading off the seventh.

Adam Eaton had three hits, including an RBI single, in his first game at Guaranteed Rate Field since Chicago traded him to Washington at the 2016 winter meetings. Kurt Suzuki added a grand slam during a six-run ninth and had five RBIs to help the Nationals win for the 12th time in 16 games.

Leury García hit a solo homer for Chicago in the sixth inning. Yoán Moncada left the game in the seventh with upper back tightness.

Despaigne (0-1) went six innings in his first major league appearance since a relief outing for the Los Angeles Angels against Oakland last Sept. 30. The 32-year-old right-hander allowed three runs and seven hits after the White Sox purchased his contract from Triple-A Charlotte. But the White Sox fell short after winning eight of 12.

Washington got a run in the second on Suzuki's sacrifice fly and another in the third when Eaton followed Turner's leadoff triple with a bloop single.

Part of the procession in Sunday's win at San Diego when Washington hit four consecutive homers, Turner made it 3-0 when he drove a 2-1 fastball out to left leading off the fifth.

DELMONICO RELEASED: The White Sox released injured outfielder Nicky Delmonico on Monday.

The 26-year-old Delmonico was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte about three weeks ago and had season-ending surgery for a torn labrum in his left shoulder on May 30. He batted .227 with 18 home runs and 54 RBIs over parts of three seasons with Chicago.

The White Sox also placed left-hander Jace Fry (sore left shoulder) on the 10-day injured list.
