The Red Sox beat baseball's top team for the first time in five tries, climbing a season-best four games over .500.
Buchholz (6-3) allowed six hits, three of them in the first inning when he got out of a bases-loaded jam with an inning-ending double play. He walked only one and struck out eight.
White Sox 7, Indians 2

Rangers file for bankruptcy
The Texas Rangers, controlled by billionaire Thomas Hicks, filed for bankruptcy to complete a $575-million sale to investors led by Hall of Fame pitcher and team president Nolan Ryan and his partner Chuck Greenberg.
Texas Rangers Baseball Partners, whose parent is Hicks' HSG Sports Group LLC, listed assets and debt of $100 million to $500 million in Chapter 11 documents filed yesterday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Fort Worth, Texas.
All Texas Rangers Baseball Partners creditors will be paid in full, according to court documents. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was listed as the team's top unsecured creditor. He is still owed about $24.9 million in deferred compensation from his Rangers contract.
