Home runs do in White Sox in 8-3 loss to Astros
White Sox starting pitcher Gavin Floyd throws against the Houston Astros Friday during the first inning at U.S. Cellular Field.
Jed Lowrie, Brett Wallace and Brian Bogusevic homered and the Houston Astros got a strong effort from their bullpen to beat the Chicago White Sox 8-3 on Friday night.
Houston's win was just its third in the last 13 games. Chicago lost for the fourth time in 15 games.
Lowrie's 11th homer, following a two-out walk to Jordan Schafer, gave the Astros a 4-0 lead in the fifth inning. Chicago starter Gavin Floyd (4-6), who has given up six homers in his last two starts, walked two and struck out nine over six innings.
Wallace had a solo shot off Floyd in the second, and Bogusevic delivered a three-run homer in the ninth off Will Ohman.
Wandy Rodriguez (5-4) gave up nine hits and three runs in 5 1-3 innings. Four relievers pitched shutout ball over the final 3 2-3 innings.
