Quintana stars, White Sox hold on for 4-2 win over Brewers

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jose Quintana struck out 10 in seven solid innings, and Avisail Garcia and Adam LaRoche hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning to lead the Chicago White Sox past the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Wednesday night.

Chicago, which had a major-league worst three road wins entering the game, won their first road series of the season after taking two of three from last-place Milwaukee.

The Brewers made things interesting in the ninth after Carlos Gomez hit a solo homer off David Robertson. Adam Lind then walked to put the tying run at the plate with one out.

Martin Maldonado lined out before Robertson got Hector Gomez to strike out on a 1-2 curveball for his seventh save.

Quintana (2-3) allowed four hits, benefiting from the solo shots from Garcia and LaRoche with two outs to make it 3-0 in the first off starter Jimmy Nelson (1-4).
