Quentin Leads White Sox Past Tigers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Quentin hit a three-run homer and Brent Lillibridge added a solo shot to help the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 6-4 on Friday night.

The White Sox ended a nine-game losing steak against the Tigers and won four straight games for the first time this season. Chicago, which trailed the Cleveland Indians by 11 games in the AL Central on May 7, are now within seven games.

White Sox starter Mark Buehrle (5-4) pitched six effective innings. He allowed three runs while giving up 10 hits, striking out four with just one walk.
