Peavey Pitches Into 9th; White Sox Beat Royals
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jake Peavy settled down after a rocky first inning and pitched into the ninth to win his third straight start, leading the Chicago White Sox past the Kansas City Royals 5-4 on Saturday night.

After the start was delayed 61 minutes by rain, Peavy (3-2) gave up a three-run double to Alberto Callaspo in the first inning and Billy Butler's homer in the third. But the right-hander allowed only three singles after that before he was pulled with one out in the ninth.

Matt Thornton got two outs for his first save of the season.
