Last updated on Friday, June 4, 2010

(CHICAGO, IL) - Carlos Quentin hit a go-ahead, two-run home run in the seventh as the Chicago White Sox avoided being swept at home by Texas with a 4-3 victory over the Rangers.

Andrew Jones homered in the second to give the sox a 1-0 lead.

Texas scored single runs in the fourth, fifth and six innings before Alex Rios drew Chicago to within a run with a solo shot of Texas starter Colby Lewis in the sixth.

Lewis was still on the mound when Quentin hit his eventual game-winner the following inning.

Freddy Garcia went seven innings, allowing two earned runs on seven hits to improve to 5-3.

Lewis falls to 4-4.
