Rookie Jose Quintana allowed two hits in eight stellar innings, Kevin Youkilis came through again with a go-ahead homer and the Chicago White Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers with a 2-1 victory Thursday.
Joe Mather hit a tiebreaking solo home run off Sean Green in the ninth inning, giving the Chicago Cubs a 3-2 split-squad victory over the Texas Rangers and a two-game split at Cashman Field.
Looking lost at the plate all game, Josh Hamilton and the Rangers suddenly resembled the team that bashed its way to Busch Stadium. They rallied for two runs in the ninth inning against the nearly spotless St. Louis bullpen, beat the Cardinals 2-1 Thursday night and evened things at 1-all.
The White Sox beat the Rangers Thursday, but Saturday was a different story. Edwin Jackson allowed four runs early in the game and struggled to recover.
