Floyd, Beckham Dominate as White Sox Beat Cubs 7-0
CHICAGO (AP) -- Gavin Floyd pitched four-hit ball into the seventh, Gordon Beckham homered, and the struggling Chicago White Sox beat the Cubs 7-0 Wednesday to avoid a three-game sweep.

Floyd (5-7) put aside his recent problems. Beckham matched a career-high by driving in four runs, and the White Sox got an easy win after dropping six of seven.

They finally showed some pop after managing just 19 runs over the previous seven games, including a 2-1 loss in which Jake Peavy went the distance the previous night.

Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko each delivered RBI singles as the White Sox grabbed a 2-0 lead in the third. Beckham then chased Randy Wells (1-2) with a run-scoring single in the fourth and broke it open with a three-run drive off Scott Maine in the sixth, making it 6-0.
