White Sox pull off triple play in 5-0 win over Rangers

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox pulled off their first triple play in nearly 10 years to secure Jose Quintana's scoreless outing and beat the Texas Rangers 5-0 on Friday night.

Quintana retired 11 straight through six innings until he loaded the bases on Prince Fielder's double, Adrian Beltre's single and a walk. Mitch Moreland drilled a ball down the right field line that Adam Eaton caught on the run as the runners took off.

Eaton threw to first to get Ian Desmond, and the White Sox eventually got Fielder in a rundown between third and home to finish the play. It was the first time Texas got caught in a triple play since 1991 and the first one the White Sox turned since Sept. 18, 2006, against Detroit.

Quintana (2-1) allowed just four hits over seven innings to help snap the Rangers' four-game winning streak. Brett Lawrie had a two-run double in a three-run sixth off Rangers starter Martin Perez (0-2).
