Quintana and Semien lead White Sox over Blue Jays

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Jose Quintana pitched into the eighth inning and rookie Marcus Semien hit his first homer to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.
 
   Quintana (9-6), who entered the game with the most no-decisions in the American League at 17, allowed two runs on five hits in 7 1-3 innings. Addison Reed pitched the ninth inning to record his 39th save of the season.
 
   Toronto starter J.A. Happ (4-7) threw 110 pitches in his five innings, allowing three runs and eight hits.
 
   Semien's homer in the second inning opened the scoring. With Dayan Viciedo on first, Semien hit an 0-2 pitch from Happ down the line and well over the fence for a 2-0 lead. Semien was called up on Sept. 4.
 
   The Blue Jays cut the lead in half as catcher J.P. Arencibia led off the fifth inning with his 21st homer, but the White Sox got the run back in the bottom of the inning when Avisail Garcia led off with a solo shot to make it 3-1.
 
   The Blue Jays closed the gap to 3-2 on a run-scoring single by Ryan Goins in the eighth inning, but that was as close as they got.
 
   NOTES:  Adam Dunn was not in the starting lineup for the third straight game on Monday. White Sox manager Robin Ventura said his playing time has been limited lately in part to get some younger guys in the lineup. Although Dunn is hitting .218 this season, he is batting .130 in September with 27 strikeouts in 17 games. "Some people have to sit and watch, but I understand and it's good to kind of evaluate the kids, too," Dunn said. ... This game was a makeup of a rain out on June 12. The White Sox flew in from Detroit on their way to Cleveland, while the Blue Jays flew in from Boston on their way to Baltimore. "You can use a day off when what happened back in June happened, but you know there's a price to pay later," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. ... Ventura's original three-year contract expires after next season, but he said he isn't interested in discussing a contract extension right now. "It has to be on both sides," he said, "but that's a discussion for another day." ... The White Sox will send Hector Santiago (4-9) against Ubaldo Jimenez (12-9) in Cleveland on Tuesday, while the Blue Jays will send Todd Redmond (4-2) against Baltimore's Chris Tillman (16-7).
