White Sox Rookie Shuts Out Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Rookie Carlos Torres threw seven crisp innings, Dewayne Wise made a great throw to cut down a runner at the plate and the White Sox beat the Cubs 5-0 Thursday in a makeup game between two city rivals whose seasons have gone awry.

Torres (1-0), recalled from the minors two days ago, earned his first major league win in his third career start. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out six.

Wise, whose highlight-reel catch preserved Mark Buehrle's perfect game back in July, made a strong throw from right field to preserve a 1-0 White Sox lead in the seventh. Jake Fox tried to score from second on Jeff Baker's single but Wise delivered the ball to A.J. Pierzynski, who was able to tag the sliding Fox for the second out.
