Alex Rios hit a two-run homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 3-2 on Wednesday to stop a four-game losing streak.

Jeff Keppinger had two hits and drove in a run for the White Sox, who earned a split of the rain-shortened series. Jose Quintana (2-0) was charged with two runs and four hits in five-plus innings.

Rios connected in the fifth, hitting a two-out drive to left on an 0-2 pitch from Zach McAllister. Rios' team-high sixth homer made it 3-0.

McAllister (1-3) walked five and allowed five hits in 5 2-3 innings. Four relievers then combined for 2 1-3 innings of hitless ball, giving the Indians a chance to rally.

Cleveland's first three batters of the sixth got on base, with Jason Kipnis singling in Drew Stubbs. Nate Jones then replaced Quintana and Mark Reynolds hit a sacrifice fly to cut Chicago's lead to 3-2.

Kipnis stole second and third, but Jones struck out Nick Swisher and got Ryan Raburn to fly out to end the inning.
