|Humber Pitches White Sox to 1-0 Win Over Cubs
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Phil Humber, backed by strong defense, pitched shutout ball for seven innings and Juan Pierre singled in the only run Saturday, lifting the Chicago White Sox past the Cubs 1-0.
Humber (8-4), who made the team in spring training and has become the White Sox's most consistent starter, allowed five singles and is now 5-1 in his last six starts.
He won a duel with Matt Garza, who held the White Sox hitless for 5 1-3 innings before Pierre singled. Garza (4-7) yielded only four singles in his first complete game with the Cubs and seventh of his career.
Cubs manager Mike Quade was ejected in the second inning for arguing a call at second on one of three double plays turned by the White Sox in the first three innings.
