Quintana leads White Sox past Tigers, 6-2

CHICAGO (AP) - Jose Quintana allowed two runs over seven innings to earn his first win in more than a month, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 after trading Adam Dunn on Sunday afternoon.

The White Sox sent Dunn to Oakland before the game, ending a disappointing four-year run in Chicago for the veteran slugger.

Then, they took advantage of a season-high four errors by the Tigers to salvage a four-game split.

Adam Eaton doubled twice and scored two runs. Carlos Sanchez had two hits and also scored twice. Avisail Garcia singled, doubled and drove in two.

Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 12 games, and the White Sox won after dropping 10 of 12.

It didn't hurt that the Tigers held Miguel Cabrera out of the lineup because of a sore right foot. He left the second game of Saturday's day-night doubleheader and is day to day. But the biggest issue for Detroit was its defense.

The Tigers committed three errors in the first two innings as the White Sox jumped out to a 5-0 lead, and that was enough for Quintana (7-10).

The left-hander allowed six hits in his first victory since winning at Detroit on July 29.

Detroit starter Rick Porcello (15-9) went 6 2-3 innings, allowing six runs - three earned - and 11 hits.

The Tigers' problems started when Eaton opened a two-run first with a double that bounced off left fielder J.D. Martinez's glove. He came around on Conor Gillaspie's two-out single, and Garcia scored from third when shortstop Eugenio Suarez dropped the ball trying to flip it to second after fielding a grounder by Dayan Viciedo.

Gillaspie was initially ruled out at second, but the call was overturned after a replay review, making it 2-0.

The White Sox took advantage of two more errors in a three-run second that broke open the game.

First baseman Don Kelly booted Sanchez's grounder as Leury Garcia scored from third, and third baseman Nick Castellanos let Abreu's grounder go under his glove as he tried to backhand it for an error. That brought in Eaton, and Avisail Garcia followed with an RBI single to make it 5-0.

It stayed that way until the sixth, when Detroit's Ian Kinsler doubled in a run and Victor Martinez added an RBI single.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Tigers: RHP Joakim Soria, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, is expected to throw a side session Monday on flat ground and possibly off the front of the mound depending on how he feels, manager Brad Ausmus said.

White Sox: Abreu, who has been bothered by an upper leg problem, was back at DH after starting there for both games in Saturday's day-night doubleheader.

UP NEXT:

Tigers: David Price (12-10, 3.32 ERA) looks to get back to form as the Tigers open a four-game series against Corey Kluber (13-8, 2.52) and the Cleveland Indians. Price went from throwing a one-hitter to getting pulled after allowing nine straight hits against the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

White Sox: Hector Noesi (8-9, 4.75) starts Tuesday against Twins LHP Tommy Milone (6-4, 4.08) when the White Sox open a two-game series at Minnesota.
