Quintana allowed eight runs on eight hits and struck out seven over 4.1 innings in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to Arizona. Quintana entered Wednesday's game on a pretty good roll, posting a 2.70 ERA over his previous six starts. And it looked like he was heading for a second consecutive gem when he retired the first 10 Diamondbacks he faced, but he couldn't make it through the order a second time. The eight runs allowed were the most Quintana's given up in over two years while Jake Lamb's homer in the fifth inning was the first Quintana had allowed to a left-handed hitter since last September. He'll carry a 4.82 ERA into his next start expected either Monday or Tuesday at home against Boston.
Quintana allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out seven over eight innings in Friday's 2-1 extra-inning win over Seattle. Quintana has never been better this season nor perhaps in his career. This was the first time the left-hander's thrown one-hit ball over eight innings. He was the definition of a stopper, as his outing came at a time when White Sox starters had gone 0-8 with a 6.33 ERA over their last 12 starts. He's allowed three or fewer runs in four of his last five starts, posting a 2.38 ERA and 1.06 WHIP over 34 innings during that span. His next scheduled start is Wednesday in Arizona.
Quintana allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five over seven innings in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Padres. Quintana held San Diego scoreless through six innings while his mates gave him little support once again. The White Sox were leading 1-0 when he served up a three-run homer to Hunter Renfroe in the seventh, putting the left-hander in line for his sixth loss of the season. However, the White Sox posted an eight-run eighth inning, taking Quintana off the hook. It was the 60th no-decision of his career, tops in the majors since 2012. Chicago's ace is 2-1 with a 2.77 ERA over his last four starts after going 0-4 with a 6.17 ERA in his first four starts of the season.
Quintana's next start has been pushed to Sunday against the Padres, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports. After Wednesday's rainout, all of the White Sox's starters got pushed back a day, so Quintana remains in line to face the Padres in Chicago, but will face Jered Weaver instead of Trevor Cahill. This slightly improves his chances of getting a win this weekend.
Quintana (2-5) allowed four runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out four in Sunday's 4-0 loss to Baltimore. Quintana certainly wasn't at his best in the loss, but his mates couldn't do much with the Orioles' Chris Tillman, who had been hammered by the White Sox's Triple-A affiliate five days prior. The South Siders have supported Quintana with just 2.6 runs per game in his seven starts, so he's had to be brilliant to win, and that hasn't often been the case this year. His next scheduled start comes Friday against the Padres, who rank 29th in MLB with a .217 team batting average.
