Rios Hits Go-Ahead Double for White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alex Rios entered the game when Carlos Quentin was injured in the first inning then hit a go-ahead double in the eighth, giving the Chicago White Sox a 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night to snap a three-game skid.

Brent Lillibridge came in to pinch-run after Paul Konerko's one-out single. Rios ripped a full-count pitch from Koji Uehara (1-3) down the left field line to score home Lillibridge.

Jesse Crain (8-3) put two runners on in the eighth but got Nelson Cruz to fly out to right field to end the threat.

Sergio Santos worked the ninth for his 26th save in 30 chances.

Ian Kinsler hit two solo home runs for the Rangers, who lost for just the second time in nine games.
