The White Sox handed Boston its second straight loss in a 3-1 win at US Cellular Field.  Chicago starter Jose Quintana dominated, holding the Red Sox hitless into the 7th inning before unraveling. He gave up three straight hits (including a David Ortiz broken-bat single that opened things up) and was pulled from the game in favor of reliever Jesse Crain, who I still always think is on the Twins because it seems like he's been on the Twins since 1974. Crain got the job done, striking out Will Middlebrooks and Stephen Drew (on a nasty breaking ball) back to back to get out of the inning. Still down 2-0, the Red Sox entered the 8th looking to put together another run. Salty walked and Ells singled. After a flyout by the pinch-hitting Mike Carp, a wild pitch put them both in scoring position. An Alexei Ramirez error allowed Dustin Pedroia to reach base and a run to come in, with Ortiz in a position to tie things up. Instead, Papi GIDP'd and that was that. #clutch The White Sox added an insurance run and Addison Reed shut the Red Sox down in a soaked 9th to close it out. Felix Doubront actually pitched quite well, as he had a one-hitter of his own in the 5th. A ground ball that could have been the third out got under Will Middlebrooks' glove and the White Sox pounced on the opportunity, scoring twice on a Jeff Keppinger home run before Felix could get out of it. Despite being efficient (I'm as shocked to type that as you are to read it), Doubront only lasted six innings, as John Farrell decided the one strong inning after the hiccup in the 5th was a good time to pull him. Farrell also noted in his postgame comments that Doubront's stuff wasn't looking as sharp, and Chicago had right-handers due up in the lineup.  The Red Sox only got four hits, so not much to say there, although Jacoby Ellsbury did provide one of them. So...that's something? Clay Buchholz takes on Hector Santiago tomorrow to avoid the series sweep. Box score
