|Quentin Hits 3 HRs, White Sox Outlast Rangers
|ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Carlos Quentin hit three home runs and the Chicago White Sox beat the Texas Rangers 8-6 in a game delayed nearly three hours by heavy rain and hail that sent fans scurrying for cover throughout the ballpark.
Fans were moved from the upper deck to the lower seating bowl and then told to take cover in tunnels beneath the ballpark as a storm approached that halted play in the fourth inning.
The game finally resumed after a delay of 2 hours, 58 minutes, and few fans were left when the final out was recorded at 1:27 a.m. CDT.
Quentin had his first career three-homer game and slumping Adam Dunn hit a tiebreaking shot for the White Sox.
