Rios, Pierzynski Lead Whit Sox Over Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alex Rios and A.J. Pierzynski each had four hits and homered to back a strong start by Jake Peavy, and the Chicago White Sox won their third straight, beating the crosstown Cubs 10-5 on Friday afternoon.

The four hits tied a season high for Rios and set one for Pierzynski, who also drove in a season-best three runs. The White Sox, meanwhile, matched their longest win streak.

Pierzynski singled in a run during a two-run first, doubled home another in a three-run fifth off Randy Wells and homered off Jeff Stevens in the seventh. He is 10 for 19 in his past four games against the Cubs -- all White Sox wins.

Rios capped a four-run eighth against James Russell with a two-run drive that made it 10-2, after Carlos Quentin went deep leading off while batting for Peavy (5-5).
