The White Sox's Paul Konerko (14) is greeted by Adam Dunn after Konerko's two-run home run off Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Brett Myers in the sixth inning Sunday in Cleveland.

CLEVELAND – The Chicago White Sox finally found the formula to win on the road.

Jake Peavy struck out 11 in seven innings, Paul Konerko homered and the Sox defeated the Cleveland Indians, 3-1, on Sunday.

Not only did the Sox break their five-game losing streak, they won for the first time this season away from U.S. Cellular Field.

The Sox began the day as the majors’ only winless team on the road. The Sox were swept three games in Washington before dropping the first two against the Indians. The Sox avoided its first 0-6 start on the road since 1968.
