Somebody needs to bottle whatever has gotten into White Sox slugger Carlos Quentin this week.
Quentin hit two homers, including a grand slam, in the first five innings of Saturday's game against the Royals. He has 10 multi-homer games in his career, and three of them have come in the past four games.
Quentin's first homer came as the White Sox absolutely unloaded on Royals spot starter Anthony Lerew, who stepped in when defending Cy Young winner Zach Grienke was a late scratch with shoulder stiffness.
Chicago hit four homers in a seven-run third inning against Lerew: a two-run shot by Alex Rios, a Quentin solo homer, a three-run shot by Andruw Jones (his 400th career homer) and a solo shot by Dayan Viciedo.
Entering Saturday, Quentin was batting .240/.342/.500 with 17 homers and 56 RBIs.
