White Sox pound Rangers

Aug 21, 2011 - 11:42 PM Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago White Sox looked like they were hitting off of a tee on Sunday, as they pounded out 16 hits in a 10-0 drubbing of the Texas Rangers in the finale of a three-game series at U.S. Cellular Field.

Brent Lillibridge and Alex Rios led the attack as both crushed two-run homers and Alejandro De Aza added three RBI for the Sox, who won the final two games of the series after dropping three straight.

"It was a good series," Lillibridge said. "It was good after losing the first one to come back and win the next two. We've been playing well on the road, so hopefully we can continue that."

Gavin Floyd (11-10) went seven-plus innings to earn the win, scattering three hits, fanning six and issuing only one walk. Jason Frasor struck out the side in the ninth to seal the win.

Derek Holland (11-5) lasted only 3 1/3 innings, giving up five runs on eight hits while fanning three and walking two.

Yorvit Torrealba collected two of Texas' four hits while Endy Chavez and Mike Napoli accounted for the other two. The Rangers have lost three of their last four after a six-game winning streak.

The White Sox opened the scoring in the third inning and cruised from there. Juan Pierre beat out an infield single to second and Lillibridge followed by belting a hanging curveball from Holland deep into the left field seats for a 2-0 Sox lead. Chicago padded its lead later in the inning on a two-run double by De Aza.

Chicago added a run in the fourth to make it 5-0. Gordon Beckham roped a single to right to begin the inning and Lillibridge singled two batters later to give the White Sox two men on with one out. Paul Konerko then greeted Rangers reliever Scott Feldman by lacing an RBI single into right.

Tyler Flowers led off the home fifth with a single to center, and advanced to second on ground out by De Aza. Brent Morel walked to put runners on first and second with one out and Beckham roped a single to advance both runners. Pierre then came through with a two-run single to make it 7-0.

Chicago expanded its lead again in the eighth when Lillibridge singled to lead off the frame and Rios followed two batters later with a monster shot to left. De Aza capped the scoring with an RBI single following a Flowers double.

Texas was unable to mount any offense against Floyd and was shut out for the sixth time this season.

"They have a solid team," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "Their record may not show it, but they can play baseball as well as anybody and today they played better than we did."
