Recap


Gavin Floyd tossed seven stellar innings and Alejandro De Aza drove in three runs as the Chicago White Sox pounded out 16 hits en route to a 10-0 home victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday in the rubber game of their three-game series.

The defeat cut the Rangers' lead atop the American League West to four games over the Los Angeles Angels, who beat Baltimore 7-1.

Brent Lillibridge and Alex Rios homered while Juan Pierre had two RBIs for Chicago, which remained five games behind first-place Detroit in the American League Central. The White Sox, who finished 5-4 on their nine-game homestand, had seven players with at least two hits.

Floyd (11-10) entered the seventh with a two-hitter but exited after allowing a leadoff single by Yorvit Torrealba, who also singled in the fifth. The righthander walked one and struck out six in improving to 5-1 over his last seven starts.

Lillibridge highlighted a four-run third inning with a two-run homer off Derek Holland (11-5), who lost for the first time in nine outings. Konerko made it 5-0 in the fourth with an RBI single, his 1,999th career hit.

Chicago added three runs in the eighth as Rios belted a two-run shot and De Aza, who had a two-run double in the third, added an RBI single.

Mike Napoli extended his road hitting streak to 22 games for the Rangers, who lost three of their last four to complete a 7-3 road trip.
