The Sox swept the floor and the Rangers for a beautiful clean house.

Short Take:   Quintana and Youkilis lead Sox to sweep of Rangers

On a day when many Sox fans unsuccessfully spent four hours tweeting and texting votes for Jake Peavy to the All-Star Game (he lost to Yu Darvish in the Final Vote), the Sox did something no other team has done yet this season: they swept the Texas Rangers.

Playing in record-setting temperatures, the White Sox successfully swept the best team in baseball 2-1. And who provided the heroics? You guessed it: Kevin Youkilis.

In the top of the fourth, Jose Quintana walked Ian Kinsler to lead off the inning. With two outs and Kinsler on second, Quintana gave up a single to Adrian Beltre. It deflected off his leg to Youkilis at first, and Kinsler scored.

Luckily that was the end of the scoring for the Rangers. Quintana pitched a beautiful game. He pitched eight innings, only giving up one run on two hits and a walk, those hits coming from Kinsler and Beltre. He also struck out eight, lowered his ERA to 2.04, and picked up his fourth win on the season. Addison Reed pitched a perfect ninth inning, striking out two, to pick up his 12th save on the season.

Rangers starter Matt Harrison also pitched a beautiful game, despite picking up the loss. He pitched all eight innings, giving up two runs on eight hits (one to each Sox player except Dayan Viciedo) and two walks. Unfortunately for Harrison, it was the hit to Youkilis in the sixth that was the game changer. Leading off that inning, Youk hit a bomb to right field, putting the Sox on top 2-1. Youk was also the run that crossed the plate in the fourth on Alexei Ramirez's bases-loaded groundout to third.

The Toronto Blue Jays come to town to finish off the first half of the season. Aaron Laffey faces Jake Peavy tomorrow night. Peavy is looking for his seventh win of the season. Hopefully the Sox keep this streak going because Jake hasn't had a lot of run support in his last four starts.
