CHICAGO (AP) — Jake Peavy pitched well into the seventh and the White Sox supported him with three homers to rally from a three-run deficit and beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 Friday night.

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.
