|Floyd Pitches White Sox Past Mariners
|SEATTLE (AP) -- Gavin Floyd held the Seattle Mariners to three singles in eight innings and the bottom third of the White Sox batting order went 10 for 12 in Chicago's 6-0 victory Saturday night.
Floyd (4-2) struck out six and walked two. Only two Mariners advanced to second base, none after the third inning.
Floyd has one career shutout -- albeit a five-inning outing. But after 100 pitches, manager Ozzie Guillen used Tony Pena to finish up in the ninth.
It was the second shutout of the season for the White Sox. The Mariners have been blanked three times.
The bottom three White Sox hitters -- Alex Rios, Gordon Beckham and Brent Morel _ combined to score four runs and drive in two. Rios was 4 for 4. Entering the game, the three had a combined .192 average.
