Jeff Keppinger and Adam Dunn homered and Quintana delivered 6 2/3 well-pitched innings as the White Sox snapped a 10-game road losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.
Dayan Viciedo also singled in two runs in his return to the lineup as the White Sox won for the first time away from U.S. Cellular Field since July 13 in Philadelphia.
