|Floyd Outstanding Again as White Sox Beat A's
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Gavin Floyd carried a perfect game into the sixth inning before settling for another outstanding outing, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 4-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.
Brent Lillibridge hit a three-run triple for Chicago, which has won six of seven. The White Sox also improved to 20-2 in their last 22 games at U.S. Cellular Field.
Floyd (7-8) walked Cliff Pennington with none out in the sixth for Oakland's first baserunner. He then surrendered a one-out single to Matt Carson.
The right-hander ended up allowing one run and four hits in seven-plus innings, improving to 5-2 in his last 11 starts.
