Recap

Paul Konerko homered in the eighth inning to break a scoreless tie in the Chicago White Sox’s 2-0 win over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday,

Juan Pierre and Mark Kotsay each had a pair of hits as the White Sox completed the three-game sweep, marking the first time this year that the Braves have been swept.

Takashi Saito (1-3) relieved Atlanta starter Derek Lowe in the eighth and was greeted by a leadoff single from Pierre. Saito got the next two outs before Konerko hammered a homer deep to left for the game’s only runs.

J.J. Putz (3-2) and Bobby Jenks completed the shutout for the White Sox, who have blanked two teams during their current nine-game winning streak. Jenks’ perfect ninth was his 17th save.

Chicago starter Gavin Floyd and Derek Lowe pitched a brilliant scoreless duel for seven innings, although neither factored into the decision.
 
Atlanta, which managed just a pair of singles, had won five straight and seven of its last eight prior to the series at U.S. Cellular.
