|Humber Wins for First Time Since Perfect Game
|ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Philip Humber won for the first time since throwing a perfect game in April, and the Chicago White Sox extended their winning streak to seven games by beating the Tampa Bay Rays 7-2 on Tuesday night.
Hideki Matsui homered in his Tampa Bay debut. The Rays purchased the 2009 World Series MVP's contract from Triple-A Durham before the game.
Humber (2-2) was 0-2 with an 8.22 ERA over six starts since his gem against Seattle on April 21. The right-hander allowed two runs and five hits over seven innings Tuesday.
Alexei Ramirez and Dayan Viciedo both had two RBIs for the White Sox, who have won six in a row on the road.
