CHICAGO (AP) — Gavin Floyd pitched 7 2-3 innings of four-hit ball and Kevin Youkilis hit a two-run homer to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 2-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.

Floyd (7-8) struck out three and walked two while improving to 3-1 with a 1.37 ERA in his last four starts. The 6-foot-6 right-hander received a standing ovation when he left in the eighth.

The White Sox have won five straight to move a season-high 10 games over .500. The AL Central leaders also have won a season-high seven straight at home.

Ricky Romero (8-4) allowed two runs and four hits in six innings for the Blue Jays, who have lost three straight.
