Chicago ended the Red Sox' six-game winning streak in a pitcher's duel this afternoon, winning 3-1.

Gavin Floyd took a no-hitter into the 7th, surrendering his first hit on a seeing-eye single to Dustin Pedroia with one out.

The only other Sox offense of the day came directly afterward, as David Ortiz doubled and Cody Ross singled in Pedroia. The rest of the innings featured zeroes across the board.

Josh Beckett was solid for Boston, letting in three runs (two on an Adam Dunn bomb) in the 1st before settling down. Beckett threw 126 pitches -- the most in his Red Sox career, and most overall since 2004 -- in 6 2/3 innings, striking out eight. You could argue that from the 2nd to the 6th inning, Beckett was every bit as good as Floyd.

Of course, the first inning still counted, and the Red Sox couldn't do any damage to Chicago's relievers once they chased Floyd from the game. The White Sox didn't use their embattled closer Hector Santiago, instead opting for Addison Reed and Matt Thornton, who had no trouble retiring batters. Santiago is certainly in danger of lose his role at the back of the bullpen.

The Sox drop to 10-11 on the year, still bringing up the rear in the AL East. They come home next, taking on Oakland.
