|Peavey Pitches White Sox Past Blue Jays
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Jake Peavy pitched eight innings for his second straight victory, Paul Konerko hit his major league-leading 13th homer and the Chicago White Sox beat Toronto 7-3 Saturday night to snap the Blue Jays' six-game win streak.
Konerko drove a two-run shot off Brett Cecil (2-2) in the first inning and the White Sox drew three bases-loaded walks, including two in a four-run seventh that broke open a 3-1 game.
That was enough for Peavy (2-2), who retired the first 16 batters before John Buck hit his eighth homer. He also allowed a leadoff shot in the eighth to Alex Gonzalez, whose three-run homer in the 12th on Friday gave Toronto a 7-4 win.
Otherwise, Peavy delivered his second dominant performance in a row after struggling through the first month. The eight innings were a season high.
