CHICAGO (AP) — Todd Frazier hit his 25th homer, Jose Quintana bested Julio Teheran in the majors’ first all-Colombian pitching matchup, and the Chicago White Sox held off the Atlanta Braves 5-4 on Saturday.
Frazier, who will go for his second straight Home Run Derby title Monday, hit a two-run shot in the second and an RBI double in Chicago’s three-run third off Teheran (3-8). The All-Star allowed five runs and nine hits over six innings after missing his last start with an infection in his right thigh.
Quintana (7-8) won his second straight start despite giving up home runs to Gordon Beckham, Jeff Francoeur and Freddie Freeman in six innings.
