ChiSox rally past Astros

Chicago,  IL (  - Tyler  Flowers' seventh-inning  RBI double 
lifted  the  Chicago White Sox to  a 3-2 win  over the  Houston Astros in the 
opener of a three-game set from U.S. Cellular Field. 

Alejandro  De  Aza's one-out single in  the home seventh against Scott Feldman 
(4-7)  set the stage  for the game-winning RBI by Flowers. De Aza stole second 
to  put himself in  scoring position for Flowers, who ripped a 3-1 offering to 
the wall in left-center. 

Feldman  was charged  with all three runs  on seven hits over seven innings to 
absorb the loss. 

Jose  Quintana (6-7)  yielded a pair of  runs on three hits for Chicago, which 
improved  to 4-0 against Houston with him on the mound in his career. Quintana 
struck out eight and walked two over five innings. 

Dayan  Viciedo homered  while rookie  superstar  Jose Abreu  extended his  hit 
streak  to  nine games.  Abreu, who  leads the  majors with  29 home runs, has 
reached safely in 27 of his last 28 games. 

Houston  got off  to a fast start, plating  both of its runs in the top of the 
second  inning.  Matt Dominguez led off  with a single to right. Jon Singleton 
followed  with a  single to  right-center, and  Dominguez scored  on Viciedo's 
error  in right.  Singleton moved to third  on the error and scored one batter 
later when Robbie Grossman grounded out to shortstop. 

Feldman  held the White Sox off the board until the sixth, but Viciedo made up 
for  his earlier  mistake by crushing the  first pitch he saw out to center to 
tie the score. 

Three White Sox relievers combined  to toss  four perfect innings, with Zach 
Putnam striking out two in the ninth to earn his second save. 

                                   Game Notes 

The  season series is tied at 2-2 ... Quintana is 3-0 over his last six starts 
...  Feldman  fell to 5-2  lifetime against  the ChiSox ... Houston designated 
hitter Chris Carter went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts.
