By scotthumphries

Carlos Quentin blasted two homeruns and Mark Buehrle pitched six solid innings to get his sixth win of the year as the Chicago White Sox rallied from an early 1-0 deficit to beat the Braves 4-2 on Wednesday night in Chicago.

Quentin connected for a two-run blast in the fourth inning, and then followed up with a seventh inning solo shot, while Buehrle pitched six innings of two-run ball to get his sixth win.

The Braves broke on top in the game, going up 1-0 on a second inning rbi-single by Melky Cabrera, but the lead proved to be short-lived, as the White Sox rallied to score three runs in the fourth inning, going up 3-1 on an rbi-single by Paul Konerko and the two-run blast by Quentin.

The Braves then cut the lead to 3-2 on a fifth inning rbi-single by David Ross, but Quentin put the White Sox back up by two runs with his seventh inning solo shot,           and Chicago cruised on to the 4-2 win from there.

Buehrle improved his season record to 6-6 with the win, while Tim Hudson (7-3) took the loss for Atlanta.

The loss dropped the Braves to 42-30 on the year, while the White Sox improved to 36-34 with the win.
