|Floyd's Strong Outing Leads Chisox
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Gavin Floyd pitched seven solid innings and Carlos Quentin homered as the Chicago White Sox rocked Fausto Carmona for the second time this season and beat the first-place Cleveland Indians 8-2 Thursday night.
Floyd (5-3) followed up Jake Peavy's three-hit shutout on Wednesday night by allowing a run and five hits as the White Sox swept the two-game set with the short-handed Indians.
With Grady Sizemore on the disabled list, Cleveland was also missing DH Travis Hafner for a second straight game with a sore right side. Travis Buck, who was supposed to be the DH, was scratched yesterday with turf toe and replaced by Shelley Duncan.
Carmona (3-4), who was 6-0 against the White Sox from 2008-10, gave up eight runs and seven hits.
