White Sox blank Blue Jays

TORONTO – Moises Sierra hit a solo home run, Jose Quintana won back-to-back starts for the first time this season and the Chicago White Sox won their third straight game Sunday, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-0.

Jose Abreu extended his hitting streak to 14 games with an RBI single as the White Sox posted their first shutout of the season and won three straight for the first time in more than a month. Chicago swept a home series against Cleveland from May 26 to May 28. They’d gone 8-17 since before Friday’s 5-4 victory began the current streak.

Quintana (5-7) allowed three hits in seven innings, improving to 4-1 with a 1.80 ERA in six starts against the Blue Jays. Quintana walked two and struck out seven.

Eric Surkamp worked the eighth and Jake Petricka finished. Facing his former team for the second time, Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle (10-5) lost for the fourth time in five starts, allowing two runs and six hits in eight innings.
