It turns out that a dominant performance from Gavin Floyd was all that was needed to help the Chicago White Sox avoid a sweep at the hands of the Boston Red Sox. Floyd had a no-hitter through the first 6 1/3 innings and completely dominated the Red Sox in a 4-1 victory that ended Boston's six-game winning streak.
The White Sox jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the first inning, with Adam Dunn providing a huge lift with a two-run homer off of Josh Beckett. The early lead was all that Floyd would need, as he controlled the potent Red Sox lineup. Floyd pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed only one run, while striking out nine batters. With the victory, Floyd improved to 2-3 this season.
