Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Carlos Quentin's three-run homer in the first inning set Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano into a frenzy, while Jake Peavy and the White Sox continued to roll with a 6-0 decision to reach 10 straight wins for the first time in over 34 years.

The last time the Sox won 10 straight was May 18-26, 1976. They have won 14 of 15 overall, their lone loss in that span coming to the Cubs on June 13 in the finale of a three-game set at Wrigley Field.

Peavy (7-5), fresh off his first shutout since 2005, struck out nine and allowed just three hits and two walks in seven shutout innings. The former National League Cy Young Award winner has won three straight starts, all coming against the Senior Circuit.

Gordon Beckham hit a solo homer and a sacrifice fly for the ChiSox, who improved their major-league best interleague record to 14-2.

Zambrano (3-6), coming off seven innings of one-run ball against the Angels on Sunday, had the shortest outing of his career as a starter, allowing four runs on four hits in a first inning that ended with the volatile right-hander enraged in the dugout.
