Peavy went 6-2/3 innings, striking out eight and giving up just two hits in the process. Delmon Young took a Peavy breaking ball out of the park for a two-run home run in the top of the seventh, but other than that, it was smooth sailing for the Sox starter.

Dayan Viciedo broke a 0-0 tie in the fifth with a solo home run to left-center; the White Sox added two runs in the sixth and two more in the eighth.

Hector Santiago worked around a leadoff single in the ninth to pick up his third save of the year.
