BOSTON — Scott Carroll pitched 6 2-3 innings of one-hit ball, and Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer on Monday night to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

Making the eighth — and best — start of his career, Carroll (3-5) walked two and struck out five while shutting down the defending World Series champions. Adam Dunn hit a solo homer in the second inning and doubled and scored on Viciedo’s home run in the fourth.

Clay Buchholz (3-5) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk, and struck out seven in seven innings. The Red Sox have lost six of seven and 12 of 17 to fall into last place in the AL East.
