White Sox Win Sixth Straight
CHICAGO (AP) -- Mark Buehrle pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and A.J. Pierzynski hit two homers Friday night, sending the Chicago White Sox to their sixth straight victory, 8-2 over the Kansas City Royals.

Buehrle took a line drive off his right (non-throwing) wrist on Scott Podsednik's leadoff single in the first, but was not seriously injured. The left-hander allowed six hits in seven-plus innings and was replaced by Sergio Santos after walking David DeJesus to start the eighth.

Buehrle (8-7) is 5-1 in his last six starts as Chicago's pitching continues to be a major reason for the team's recent tear -- 23 wins in 28 games.

His performance followed a two-hit shutout by John Danks against the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday.
