CLEVELAND (AP) — Gavin Floyd allowed four hits over 7 2-3 innings and Carlos Quentin hit a three-run homer in the fifth to give the Chicago White Sox a 3-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.
Floyd (8-9) earned his second straight win after going 0-4 over six previous starts. The right-hander struck out five and didn’t issue a walk for the first time in 19 starts.
Quentin’s 20th homer came off Carlos Carrasco (8-8).
Sergio Santos, the second Chicago reliever, struck out Matt LaPorta on a pitch in the dirt with a runner on second in the ninth for his 19th save in 22 chances to complete the five-hitter.
