CLEVELAND (AP) – Jake Peavy coasted for six innings before giving up a run in the seventh and Adam Dunn homered, leading the Chicago White Sox to an easy 8-1 win over the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night and a split of their four-game series.

Peavy (4-1) allowed seven hits, struck out five and had little difficulty with the Indians, who didn’t get a runner past second until the seventh. The right-hander has been overpowering in his last five starts, posting a 1.36 ERA.

Dunn connected for his 10th homer, a two-run shot, in the first inning off Jeanmar Gomez (2-2) and the White Sox added six runs in the fourth off Cleveland’s starter, who was tagged for eight runs and nine hits – eight singles.

Alexei Ramirez had three hits and Alejandro De Aza drove in two runs for the White Sox.
