For the second straight outing White Sox starter Mark Buehrle didn't have it. With one out in the first inning, Buehrle allowed a single to Shin-Soo Choo, a double to Kearns and a two-run single to Peralta. Shelley Duncan followed with a double to right-center to score Peralta from first.
After getting the first two outs in the third inning, Buehrle walked Luis Valbuena and allowed a single to Matt LaPorta. Marson then broke out of an 0 for 18 slump with a three-run shot to make it 6-2. It was his first home run since Sept. 28, 2008, with Philadelphia.
Buehrle allowed six runs over three innings on eight hits. He left the game after throwing 95 pitches. Since last season's perfect game against Tampa Bay, the left-hander has given up five or more runs in 12 of 25 outings.
In his last start against Texas on Tuesday, Buehrle allowed six runs and a season-worst 12 hits in Tuesday's 9-6 defeat to Texas.
Tony Pena pitches three inning of scoreless relief for Chicago.
NOTES: Acta, an avid follower John Wooden, said there has been no greater influence in his coaching career than the UCLA legend. "Be patient, work hard, and control your emotions. I'm a big believer in that," Acta said. "Everything I do is following his lead on how to lead people and how to try to get guys to approach a team-first mentality." ... Indians 2B Mark Grudzielanek left the game with tightness in the right hamstring. ... Cleveland's last three-game sweep of the White Sox in Chicago came on May 15-17, 1999.
