KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Gavin Floyd pitched into the seventh inning to earn his first win in five weeks as the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 4-3 on Tuesday night.

Floyd, who was 0-3 with a 2.79 ERA in six starts since beating Florida on May 22, held the Royals to three runs, one unearned, and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings. In his previous two 2010 starts against the Royals, Floyd was 0-2, allowing 11 runs and 23 hits in 12 1/3 innings.
