OAKLAND, Calif., April 24 (UPI) -- Jake Peavy fired a three-hit shutout Monday and the Chicago White Sox notched their sixth straight win with a 4-0 whitewash of Oakland.

Peavy (3-0) allowed two walks and struck out five, raising his total to 26 over 28 2/3 innings to start the season.

The former Cy Young award winner threw 71 of his 107 pitches for strikes and lowered his ERA to 1.88 with the dominating performance in the opener of a three-game set at Oakland.

Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko each socked a solo homer for the White Sox, who pulled into a first-place tie with Detroit atop the American League Central.

Athletics starter Bartolo Colon (3-2) yielded two runs on seven hits in a seven-innings to take the loss.

The A's lost for the third time in four games.
