|Peavy's 3-hitter Leads White Sox Past A's 4-0
|OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Jake Peavy pitched a three-hitter, Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko hit back-to-back homers and the Chicago White Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 4-0 on Monday night.
Two days after teammate Phil Humber pitched the 21st perfect game in major league history, Peavy allowed only a leadoff single to Jemile Weeks in the fourth inning, a double to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh and a single to Coco Crisp in the ninth. The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner walked two and faced only four batters more than the minimum.
Alex Rios added three hits for Chicago, while Brent Morel had two hits and scored a run.
Oakland starter Bartolo Colon scattered seven hits over seven innings and fell short in his bid to become the first four-game winner in the majors.
