Even in victory, the White Sox were left pondering a possible loss.

The victory: 3-2 over the Rangers, breaking a three-game losing streak and keeping the Sox five behind the Tigers in the American League Central.

The possible loss: Cleanup hitter Carlos Quentin, who left in the first inning after making a diving catch and landing on his left shoulder.

And while X-rays were negative, Quentin will not play in Sunday's series final. If he is still too sore to swing a bat Tuesday, he may be headed for the disabled list … and Dayan Viciedo finally could be headed back to the big leagues.

"I don't expect him (to go on the DL) but when he's swinging he uses that shoulder a lot," manager Ozzie Guillen said.

But how about this for irony? Quentin's replacement hit the game-winning RBI double in the eighth inning.

Yes, none other than Alex Rios, who was booed by the crowd of 30,021 at U.S. Cellular Field when he trotted in to replace Quentin. But he got a standing ovation after his line drive scored pinch-runner Brent Lillibridge.
