Quantrill (4-3) allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts in six-plus innings, taking the loss Friday versus Boston.
The right-hander yielded three solo shots in the first four innings, making Friday the first time he's allowed multiple homers since July 10. Quantrill stayed in to begin the seventh inning, but he allowed the first two runners to reach base, and Trevor Stephan failed to work out of the jam. Quantrill has pitched well enough since the All-Star break to consider this a minor hiccup. He has a 3.15 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 101:40 K:BB through 122.2 innings overall. He's projected for a more favorable home matchup versus Minnesota next week.
