|Peavy Has Solid Effort in White Sox's Win
|BOSTON (AP) -- Alexei Ramirez and Carlos Quentin each had a pair of RBIs in a four-run sixth inning as the Chicago White Sox snapped Jon Lester's seven-game winning streak and beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3 Monday night.
Paul Konerko added a solo homer for the White Sox, who halted a three-game losing skid and won for the 11th time in their last 13 games against the Red Sox.
Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo homer for Boston, which lost its second straight but only its fourth in its last 17 games.
Jake Peavy (2-0), making just his fourth start after working back from season-ending right shoulder surgery last July, held Boston to three runs, six hits, striking out two and not walking anyone over seven innings on the eve of his 30th birthday.
