CHICAGO (AP) - Chris Sale struck out 14 and the Chicago White Sox beat Houston 3-1 on a rainy Monday night, with highly regarded Carlos Correa driving in the Astros' run in his big league debut.

Sale (6-2) became the first White Sox pitcher to fan at least 10 in four straight games, the team said in citing Elias Sports Bureau.

It was Sale's third straight game with 12 or more strikeouts. He gave up one run and five hits.

Correa, the top pick in the 2012 draft, was promoted from Triple-A and became the youngest player in the majors at 20. Batting sixth and playing shortstop, he went 1 for 4.

In the fourth, Correa came up with runners at second and third and two outs. After a replay review, he was called safe for beating out a grounder to short.

David Robertson struck out two for his 11th save.

Lance McCullers (2-1) took the loss.
