The White Sox secured a series win over the surprising Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night and gave the fans at U.S. Cellular Field a lot of excitement in doing so. Quintana Dominates Wrapping Jose Quintana's great performance against the strong Boston Red Sox' lineup Tuesday night is quite simple: the youngster hit his spots and changed speeds with all of his pitches, which led to a dominant start like we've already seen from 'Q' so many times in his young career. In fact, Quintana took a no-hitter into the seventh inning (only issuing two walks) before David Ortiz broke up his bid with a broken-bat single to center field on a nice piece of hitting with one man out. Jose let up two more quick hits before he was chased, but thankfully Jesse Crain came in and struck out the next two Boston hitters to preserve Quintana's shutout effort. He improved to 3-1 on the season with the win to go along with a very good 3.48 ERA as he continues to assure White Sox faithful that he's the middle of the rotation arm they need going forward. Lots of talk throughout the years has been devoted to John Danks comparisons to Mark Buehrle, but at this point in time, if anybody is the next Buehrle, it's Quintana. Offense Does Enough Though Quintana was dominating for most of the ball game, Red Sox starter Felix Dubrount wasn't doing too shabby himself. Until the fifth inning, all he let up was a swinging bunt single to Alexei Ramirez in the first inning. But then, his fortune quickly turned around. After two quick outs were recorded, Dayan Viciedo chopped a single to left field and Jeff Keppinger went deep for the first time in a White Sox uniform to put the team on top, 2-0. Right after that, Tyler Flowers doubled off of the left center field wall, which ended up going for not, but it was clear that Sox hitters were starting to get to Dubrount. Though they didn't produce any runs in the sixth inning, they did create another jam for Dubrount which chased him out of the game despite not throwing many pitches when the seventh inning began. Finally in the eighth inning the team was able to push across an insurance run thanks to another Alexei Ramirez single and Alex Rios double. At that point, the team just needed three more outs to pick up the win, which was taken care of with ease by closer Addison Reed for his 16th save of the season after 1.2 clutch innings from Matt Lindstrom (in relief of Matt Thornton). Box Score  -  Play-by-Play  -  Photos  -  Video Tomorrow night, the White Sox go for the series sweep of the Boston Red Sox. It was scheduled to be one of the best possible pitching matchups the MLB could dream of between Chris Sale and Clay Bucholz, but Sale was scratched Tuesday due to shoulder tendonitis, so Hector Santiago will be taking his spot on short rest (three days). The team has said it's simply a precautionary measure for their ace, but we will certainly monitor the situation closely in case any worrisome news arises (knock on wood). Santiago will have tough test in Clay Buchholz (6-0, 1.78 ERA), as he's likely auditioning for his job going forward. With Dylan Axelrod's consistent nature and John Danks likely returning in a few days, Santiago could be the odd man out and bullpen-bound.
