    Cleveland Indians catcher Carlos Santana forces Chicago White Sox's Alex Rios out at home off a throw from first baseman Matt LaPorta during the second inning.

    Gavin Floyd pitched seven solid innings and Carlos Quentin homered as the Chicago White Sox rocked Fausto Carmona for the second time this season and beat the first-place Cleveland Indians 8-2 on Thursday night.

    Floyd (5-3) followed up Jake Peavy's three-hit shutout on Wednesday night by allowing a run and five hits as the White Sox swept the two-game set with the short-handed Indians.

    With Grady Sizemore on the disabled list, Cleveland was also missing DH Travis Hafner for a second straight game with a sore right side. Travis Buck, who was supposed to be the DH, was scratched Thursday with turf toe and replaced by Shelley Duncan.

    Carmona (3-4), who was 6-0 against the White Sox from 2008-10, gave up eight runs and seven hits.
