The White Sox pulled within a run in their fifth when Quentin drew a bases-loaded walk off Masterson, who then struck out Paul Konerko to get out of the jam.
NOTES: Former White Sox (and Indians) slugger Jim Thome's new team, Minnesota, comes into U.S. Cellular Field for a series starting Friday. Chicago manager Ozzie Guillen says he's not sorry he valued versatility and speed over what a 39-year-old Thome could have brought to the DH job. "Do we miss him? Yes, but we're going a different direction," Guillen said. "I talked to Jimmy about why he can't be here. I don't have enough at-bats for him. At least I was honest with him." ... Indians 1B Russell Branyan (sore back) began a rehab assignment Thursday at Triple-A Columbus. He went 3 for 3, doubled and drove in a run. ... Chicago's Alexei Ramirez fouled off nine pitches in the third inning before Masterson struck him out on the 14th pitch of the at-bat.
