Peavy (3-1) gave up home runs to Matt Joyce and Evan Longoria and fell behind 3-0 in the fourth, but the White Sox overpowered Rays starter Roberto Hernandez (1-4) for their first three-game winning streak of the season.

Peavy allowed three runs and six hits, with seven strikeouts, in 6 2-3 innings.

Hector Gimenez, Tyler Greene and Conor Gillaspie all homered for the White Sox.
