Quintana lifts ChiSox

Lefty shuts down BoSox; grand slam sinks Cubs

Jose Quintana took a no-hitter into the seventh
before David Ortiz broke it up with a one-out broken-bat single, and the White Sox beat the
Boston Red Sox 3-1 on Tuesday night in Chicago.

Jeff Keppinger hit a two-run homer off Felix Doubront (3-2) in the fifth. Alex Rios extended his career-high hitting streak to 16 with a single and RBI double, and the White Sox won for the sixth time in eight games. They’ll try to complete the sweep against Clay Buchholz today.

Quintana (3-1) was simply terrific. The left-hander struck out five and walked two, and he had the fans thinking they just might be witnessing something special.

The roars from the stands grew louder with each out as the game wore on, right until Ortiz’s bat shattered on a bloop single to center with one out in the seventh.

Pirates 5, Cubs 4: Travis
Snider hit a pinch-hit grand slam during a five-run sixth, and the Pirates spoiled a strong return to the mound for Matt Garza with a win over the Cubs in Pittsburgh.

Garza allowed one hit over five shutout innings in his first outing in 10 months, but the Pirates pounced on a Chicago bullpen that is 10th in the National League in ERA by sending 11 men to the plate in the sixth.

Snider’s first career home run with the bases loaded was the first Pirates pinch-hit grand slam in 5 years.

Garza had been sidelined since July 21 because of a stress reaction in his right elbow and, later, a strained upper back.

Wandy Rodriguez (5-2) allowed three runs on six hits over six innings for the Pirates, who have won nine of 11.
