Rios homers to help White Sox cool off Rays, 3-1

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Alex Rios hit his career-high 25th homer and the Chicago White Sox gave their fading playoff hopes a boost, beating Tampa Bay 3-1 on Friday night to end the Rays' 8-game winning streak.

The White Sox got a bit of a reprieve after dropping 8 of 9 and moved within a game of first-place Detroit in the AL Central. The Tigers lost to Minnesota 4-2.

The Rays began the night two games behind Oakland for the second AL wild-card spot. But they came up short in this one, ending a streak that launched them back into playoff contention.

Both teams have five games remaining, including two against each other.
