Jose Quintana won’t tie the all-time mark for no decisions this season. He earned the victory on Tuesday night as the White Sox defeated the Minnesota Twins 4-3 at U.S. Cellular Field. Quintana has already established an American League record with 17 no decisions and leads the majors. But his chance to tie Bert Blyleven’s all-time mark of 20 established in 1979 was wiped out when the White Sox rewarded Quintana for a hard-fought six innings against Minnesota. Quintana who appears to be in line for two more starts improved to 8-6 after he stranded nine of the 10 runners he allowed to reach base. Had another victory been taken away which very nearly happened one inning after his exit Quintana wouldn’t have let on were he disappointed. That aspect of his game has thoroughly impressed teammate Paul Konerko who has seen enough to be convinced. In his first 53 starts Quintana has 27 no decisions including six when he pitched at least seven shutout innings. “It’s his best thing going” Konerko said. “Everybody in here always talks about it. He’s just very composed during the game after the game. You can’t really tell. Rarely do you ever see him even change facial expression. He’s very poised.” Quintana needed every ounce of poise to escape several jams.
