White Sox 2, Astros 1

CHICAGO — Chris Sale pitched a complete-game four-hitter, becoming the first major-league pitcher since 2008 to win his first nine starts, and the White Sox snapped their season-high four game losing streak. Sale walked none and struck out a season-high nine en route to his second straight complete game. No other pitcher has more than seven victories in the big leagues this season. The Diamondbacks' Brandon Webb had been the last to post a 9-0 record in his first nine starts. The last White Sox to accomplish the feat was Eddie Cicotte in 1919, when he won 12 in a row. Evan Gattis homered off Sale's first pitch in the eighth.
