|Konerko Hits Two Homers in White Sox's Win
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Paul Konerko hit two home runs and Gavin Floyd pitched eight masterful innings Sunday as the Chicago White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-1.
Konerko's solo homers in the first and fifth innings gave him three on the season. He has a 10-game hitting streak dating back to last year and has driven in a run in all but one game for Chicago this year.
Floyd struck out eight, allowing just four hits and one unearned run. He retired 16 of the first 18 batters he faced.
Jeff Niemann was pulled after just 2 2-3 innings for the Rays, allowing five runs on five hits. Three of the runs were earned.
Rays manager Joe Maddon was ejected in the sixth inning for arguing a reversed call.
