Buehrle Sharp as White Sox Shut Out Indians
CHICAGO (AP) -- Mark Buehrle pitched three-hit ball over seven innings, Paul Konerko homered and the Chicago White Sox opened with a 6-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Monday.

Lonerko got his 12th season in Chicago off to a good start with a two-run drive in the first and Buehrle simply shut down the Indians, spoiling Cleveland manager Manny Acta's debut and Jake Westbrook's first start in nearly two years.

Alex Rios added a solo homer off Tony Sipp in the eighth and ended the game with a diving catch on Travis Hafner's line drive to center.

Buehrle, starting his club-record eighth opener, looked more like the four-time All-Star he is than the guy who won just twice after his perfect game against Tampa Bay on July 23.
