The Red Sox ace came into Saturday's contest with a 6.00 ERA over 24 innings.

Franklin Morales and Vicente Padilla combined for a scoreless eighth inning and Alfredo Aceves earned his fifth save with a 1-2-3 ninth for Boston, which clinched its four-game series against Chicago and extended its win streak to six overall.

Adrian Gonzales drove in the game's only run with a fourth-inning single.

Jake Peavy (3-1) took the hard-luck loss for the White Sox, yielding just the lone run in a complete-game effort.

The Chisox right-hander allowed four hits, walked one and fanned seven.
