Chris Sale pitched a two-hitter, Paul Konerko homered and the Chicago White Sox defeated the San Diego Padres 4-1 on Sunday.

Sale (5-0) struck out nine, walked none and threw 100 pitches. He froze Everth Cabrera for a called strike three to end the game, lowering his ERA to 1.59 ERA in seven starts.

Sale has allowed just one earned run in his last 25 innings, a span of four starts. The lefty was on the disabled list in late April because of a strained muscle in his pitching arm.

Konerko had two hits and drove in three runs as the White Sox won for the eighth time in 13 games.

Eric Stults (2-6) gave up four runs and five hits in six innings.
