Jake Peavy's impressive start to the 2012 season continued on Monday night in Oakland when the veteran pitcher hurled a complete game shutout to key the White Sox's 4-0 victory over the Athletics. Peavy allowed just three hits and two walks while striking out five in 107 pitches. The Sox improve to 10-6, while Oakland falls to 8-10.
Adam Dunn hit a solo homer in the fourth inning to put Chicago on the board first, his fourth blast of the year. Paul Konerko would make it back-to-back jacks for the Sox when he took A's starter Bartolo Colon deep for his third dinger of the year. The White Sox scored two more runs in the ninth on some poor Oakland defense.
Chicago pounded out 12 hits on the night, including three by embattled right fielder Alex Rios.
