    Jarrod Saltalamacchia #39 of the Boston Red Sox slides safely into third base with a steal as third baseman Jeff Keppinger #7 of the Chicago White Sox grabs the throw from catcher Tyler Flowers #21 during the eighth inning on May 21, 2013 at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, Illinois.

    Jose Quintana took a no-hitter into the seventh before David Ortiz broke it up with a one-out broken-bat single, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 3-1 on Tuesday night.

    Jeff Keppinger hit a two-run homer off Felix Doubront (3-2) in the fifth. Alex Rios extended his career-high hitting streak to 16 with a single and RBI double, and the White Sox won for the sixth time in eight games. They'll try to complete the sweep against Clay Buchholz on Wednesday.

    Quintana (3-1) was simply terrific.

    The left-hander struck out five and walked two, and he had the fans thinking they just might be witnessing something special. The roars from the stands grew louder with each out as the game wore on, right until Ortiz's bat shattered on a bloop single to center with one out in the seventh.
