Behind the pitching of left-hander Jose Quintana and the power of Alex Rios, the White Sox held on for a 3-2 victory over the Indians on Wednesday to snap a four-game losing streak. Quintana threw five scoreless innings to extend his career-high scoreless streak to 18 2/3 innings before fading in the sixth, when Cleveland scored twice. Alex Rios launched a two-run home run in the fifth off Cleveland starter Zach McAllister to give the Sox a 3-0 lead and snap his 0-for-13 slump. The Sox scored their run in the first on a walk by Alejandro De Aza, a stolen base and single by Jeff Keppinger. Nate Jones relieved Quintana with runners at first and third and no out in the sixth with a 3-1 lead. Mark Reynolds hit a sacrifice fly but Jones got out of jam. Matt Thornton, Jesse Crain and Addison Reed held Cleveland scoreless the rest of the way. The Sox open a four-game series against Joe Maddon's Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night.
