White Sox bullpen covers 8 2/3 innings to beat Astros

HOUSTON (AP) Two weeks ago, Chris Volstad was hanging out at home. His Triple-A season was finished, and for the second straight year, the Chicago White Sox hadn't needed him at all in the major leagues.

"It's kind of crazy how things can change in about two weeks," he said.

Finally back in the big leagues, the 30-year-old Volstad got his first victory since 2012 on Thursday night, leading a group of seven relievers that covered 8 2/3 innings as Chicago beat the Houston Astros 3-1.
