White Sox shut out Red Sox 4-0
(BOSTON) - So much for Boston's mini surge of offense. The Red Sox managed just two hits and were beaten by the Chicago White Sox 4-0 on Monday night, Boston's sixth loss in seven games. Scott Carroll pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-hit ball, and Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer off Clay Buchholz in the fourth as Boston was shut out for the ninth time this season and tied its season-low hit output. Adam Dunn also homered off Buchholz, but he recovered well from the rocky start and kept the Red Sox in the game. All four runs came on home runs as Buchholz (3-5) allowed five hits, struck out a season-high seven and walked one. A.J. Pierzynski's third-inning single was the lone hit off Carroll. Jackie Bradley Jr. singled off Javy Guerra to lead off the eighth for the only other Red Sox hit. Making the eighth start of his career, Carroll (3-5) walked two and struck out five while shutting down the defending World Series champions. Dunn hit a solo homer in the second inning and doubled and scored on Viciedo's home run in the fourth.

Reds beat Cubs 9-3
(CINCINNATI) - An error that let in a run, a two-run homer that turned things around. Jay Bruce's introduction to first base ended up being a big hit. Bruce played first base for the first time since high school and committed an error that let in an unearned run Monday night, but he later homered to help the Cincinnati Reds rally for a 9-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs in the opener of a five-game series. Billy Hamilton drove in a career-high four runs with a single and a bases-loaded triple. The Reds have won 11 of their past 16 games despite getting little production from injured first baseman Joe Votto, who had another test on his troublesome left thigh Monday. The Reds were awaiting results before deciding whether to put him back on the disabled list. Mike Leake (7-7) gave up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo and an unearned run off Bruce's error during seven innings. Leake is 8-2 in his career against Chicago, including 4-0 in his past four starts with a 1.71 ERA. After Bruce's error let in a run that tied it 1-all in the fifth, he singled and scored on Devin Mesoraco's double off Edwin Jackson (5-9). Bruce hit a two-run homer off left-hander Jame Srussle in the seventh. Hamilton tripled home the three runs in the eighth.
