The White Sox plated six runs in the fourth inning, but really only needed the two-run homer Adam Dunn blasted in the top of the first inning off Indians starter Jeanmar Gomez, who got rocked in the first four innings. Gomez gave up eight earned runs on nine hits and walked four in managing to get through 6.2 innings.
Alexei Ramirez had three hits for the White Sox and Jake Peavy improved to 4-1 with a 1.89 ERA by throwing seven strong innings of one-run ball.
The Indians now travel to Boston to take on the Red Sox for three games this weekend.
