White Sox Vs. Rays Final Score: Chicago Gets Sweep With 4-3 Victory

The Chicago White Sox completed their sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays with a 4-3 victory on Wednesday afternoon at Tropicana Field. The win continues Chicago's stunning run over the past few weeks that's seen the team take 12 of its past 13 games to burst into first place in the AL Central.

In a contentious game that saw White Sox starter Jose Quintana get ejected in the fourth inning, the White Sox bullpen managed to tie up the loose ends without relinquishing the lead. After Nate Jones came in and allowed a pair of runs in relief of Quintana in the bottom of the sixth, the Rays wouldn't score another run for the remainder of the game.

Matt Thornton, Jesse Crain and closer Addison Reed, essentially the team's best three relievers, combined to pitch 3.1 shutout innings for the White Sox to finish off Tampa Bay. The Rays threatened in the ninth inning with two runners on and just one out, but Reed got out of the jam to get his sixth save of the year.

Dayan Viciedo continued his own personal hot streak for the Sox by getting three hits, plus Alex Rios and Alexei Ramirez added two hits apiece. With the Cleveland Indians also losing this afternoon, the White Sox are now up 1.5 games in the division.
