Beckham's sixth homer was a liner down the left-field line that scored De Aza, who'd been hit by a pitch leading off the first.
After Beckham connected with two outs in the fifth, Dunn sent one down the line in right for his 17th home run of the season.
Hernandez gave up five hits and four runs in five innings with four walks and six strikeouts.
When Smoak hit the high pop in front of the plate in the fifth, Chicago catcher Pierzynski stepped out to make the catch with Peavy coming off the mound. The ball dropped just out of Pierzynski's reach without him touching it.
