Sox lose

CHICAGO – The Red Sox have bowed to the White Sox, 5-3 here tonight.

MVP candidate Carlos Quentin bopped his 31st homer in the eighth to give closer Bobby Jenks a two-run cushion in the ninth.

This was certainly a key series for the Red Sox who swept the Royals and were trying to stay close or gain ground on the Rays.
