Recap: Chicago WSox vs. Texas

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Tyler Flowers finished a double shy of the cycle and drove in three runs as the White Sox earned a 5-3 win over the Rangers in a rain-shortened series opener in Chicago.

The game was played through a persistent rain until finally being called after the top of the seventh inning.

Hector Noesi (6-8) went all seven frames and earned his first career complete game against his former team, which waived him back in April.

Nick Martinez (1-8) remained winless since May after allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks over five-plus innings.

"The rain didn't affect me at all," Martinez said. "This is a game of adversity. You have to be able to deal with adversity to pitch at this level."

Rougned Odor hit a two-run homer for the Rangers and Adrian Beltre drove in a run and nearly went deep in the fifth inning.

Adam Eaton brought back Beltre's potential homer, however, with a perfectly- timed leaping grab at the center-field wall, and Flowers led off the bottom half with a game-tying solo blast.

"(Martinez) left a slider up in the zone," Flowers said. "I was just trying to put it in play."

Flowers stepped in with runners on second and third in the sixth and laced a base hit to center to bring in both runners for a 5-3 Chicago lead, and Texas was dealt a fourth straight loss when play was halted after a lengthy delay.

Beltre singled in Elvis Andrus in the Rangers' first at-bat, and Odor went deep in the second after a Noesi error extended the inning.

Jose Abreu drove in two runs with a single to center in the third. Flowers tripled off the top of the right-field wall while Eaton and Alexei Ramirez both earned walks prior to the rookie knocking in his 85th and 86th runs.

Game Notes

Noesi struck out six and allowed four hits, three walks and three runs -- one earned ... Eaton extended his hitting streak to 11 games ... White Sox left fielder Alejandro De Aza left the game due to an injured knee ... Texas has dropped seven in a row on the road ...
