White Sox 3, Rangers 2: Alex Rios entered when Carlos Quentin was injured in the first, then hit a go-ahead double in the eighth for host Chicago.

Phillies 5, Nationals 0: Roy Oswalt pitched eight strong innings and Wilson Valdez had a two-run triple for visiting Philadelphia.

Braves 8, D-backs 1: Dan Uggla homered twice and Brandon Beachy (6-2) pitched six innings for host Atlanta.

Cubs 3, Cardinals 0: Matt Garza (6-9) pitched seven innings and Aramis Ramirez homered for host Chicago.

Astros 7, Giants 5: Rookie Jose Altuve hit an inside-the-park drive, his first big-league homer for host Houston. San Francisco has lost three straight and 16 of 22. -- AP
