Quintana fans 10 as the White Sox beat the Brewers 4-2
MILWAUKEE – It’s been a rough May for one White Sox starter-and it’s not because he’s been necessarily pitching terribly.
In his last two starts this month Jose Quintana allowed just three earned runs and struck out 13 batters but came out on the wrong end of low-run games against the Twins (May 1st) and the Tigers (May 7th).
That wouldn’t happen again on Wednesday night as Quintana turned in his best performance of the season.
The pitcher scattered just four hits and allowed just one earned run while striking out 10 Brewers at Miller Park to help the White Sox to a 4-2 victory.
Quintana went seven innings to pick up his third win of the season and even his record at 3-3.
He played from the lead all game as the White Sox got all the runs they would need in the first inning. Melky Cabrera’s RBI sacrifice fly was followed by a long two-run homer by Avisail Garcia to center field that put the White Sox up 3-0.
Emilio Bonifacio added another run in the 7th with an infield single to make it 4-0.
Milwaukee finally got in the eighth and got another one in the ninth on a Carlos Gomez homer off David Robertson. But the closer settled down after that and finished off the game for his seventh save of the year.
