Jose Quintana (6-10) will attempt to snap his three-game losing streak when the Chicago White Sox go up against rookie left-hander T.J. House (2-3) and the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night.
Third-year starter Jose Quintana gave up four runs in six innings of work against the Baltimore Orioles last week and ended up losing the game. He allowed eight hits in that matchup while striking out three batters and walking no one. Quintana currently has a 3.25 ERA on the year and he has only given up seven home runs in 160.2 innings on the mound for the White Sox.
Indians outfielder Michael Brantley has seven hits in his 15 at-bats versus Quintana with two doubles, a home run and four RBI. First baseman Carlos Santana is just 2-for-13 against him with three RBI and two strikeouts.
T.J. House pitched 5.1 scoreless innings against the Minnesota Twins last Wednesday and was able to pick up his second career win. He gave up just four hits in that start and walked three batters while striking out five. House lowered his ERA to 3.80 with that win and he has struck out 49 batters in 66.1 innings.
White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez is 2-for-3 against House in his career with two singles. Third baseman Conor Gillaspie is hitless in three at-bats against him with no walks and two strikeouts.
