Beckham Helps White Sox Beat Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Gordon Beckham drove in three runs and the Chicago White Sox spoiled former first-round draft pick Brad Lincoln's first start at home, beating Pittsburgh 6-4 Tuesday night and extending the last-place Pirates' losing streak to nine games.

Ramon Castro doubled in a run while reaching base four consecutive times and the White Sox put aside the recent feud between general manager Kenny Williams and manager Ozzie Guillen to win their fifth in six games.

Williams is making his first road trip of the season, and Guillen said the two _ who often disagree over personnel matters and other issues, had a constructive talk during the flight to Pittsburgh.
