|Floyd, Quentin Lead White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Gavin Floyd pitched effectively into the eighth inning, Carlos Quentin hit two of Chicago's three homers off Brian Bannister and the White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 Saturday night for their seventh straight victory.
Gordon Beckham also homered for the White Sox, who are 24-5 in their last 29 games.
Floyd (5-7), who left after Jason Kendall's third single of the game with two outs in the eighth, gave up six hits and a run. David DeJesus ruined the shutout bid with an RBI double off reliever Matt Thornton.
Chicago pitching has allowed just three runs in the last three games.
