Jake Peavy pitched seven-plus shutout innings in his most impressive start of the season and Alex Rios had three hits and two RBIs as the Chicago White Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Monday night.

Peavy (1-2) struck out a season-high nine batters using a sharp fastball and left to a standing ovation in the eighth inning. He didn't allow a hit until Mitch Maier singled with two outs in the fifth.

Peavy didn't surrender another hit until Alberto Callaspo singled and Jason Kendall doubled with two outs in the seventh. Peavy finished the inning by getting Maier to hit a soft liner to shortstop Alexei Ramirez with runners on second and third.

Ramirez hit a solo home run and Andruw Jones had two hits and two RBIs for the White Sox.
