Jose Quintana (4-1) was outstanding in the hot hot heat this afternoon, holding the Rangers to one run in his eight innings of work. He struck out eight and walked one -- the lone runner to cross the plate from the Lone Star State. Addison Reed pitched a perfect ninth for his 12th save.

The rookie pitching we have been getting from the White Sox staff is pretty amazing, but how huge was Kevin Youkilis in his first home series on the South Side?
