The White Sox has not been able to fully take advantage of the Tigers' swoon, losing two of three in Kansas City to carry a two-game edge into the series. Quintana has been awful as of late for the White Sox, posting a 12.66 ERA in his last three starts. He went just 1 1/3 innings in his last start against Minnesota (18-9 loss).
