Tuesday night, Jose Quintana gets the nod for the Chicago White Sox as they face Anibal Sanchez and the Detroit Tigers. Quintana makes his 22nd start as Sanchez makes his 19th.
Jose Quintana pitched to his 4th straight no-decision in his last start and that held his record at 5 - 7 with a 3.15 ERA. The last time out, Quintana gave up just a run on 7 hits in 7 innings of work. He walked 2 and struck out 3 but his efforts weren't rewarded with a win. It's been nearly a month since Quintana has had a decision although he has pitched well in that stretch of time. The way that things are going, he might just barely match his win total from 2013 when he went 9 - 7 with a 3.51 ERA in 33 starts.
Last season, Quintana was 1 - 0 with a 1.80 ERA in 2 starts against the Tigers. This season, he is 0 - 1 in back-to-back starts against Detroit.
Anibal Sanchez took his record to 7 - 4 with a 3.45 ERA after getting the victory in his last start. Sanchez got the win despite allowing 5 runs and 11 hits (including a homer) in 6.1 innings. He walked a batter and struck out 4. Sanchez is 2 -2 in his last 4 starts. Last season, Sanchez posted a record of 14 -8 with a 2.57 ERA in 29 starts.
In 2013, Sanchez was 2 - 2 with a 3.04 ERA in 4 starts against the White Sox. This season, Sanchez took a loss against Chicago after allowing just 3 runs and 5 hits in 6.1 innings.
