Frazier homers, White Sox nip Braves 5-4

He was placed on the disabled list on June 4 with a bone spur and made his third start since returning. In relief, Chris Withrow threw an uneventful 1-2-3 eighth and Jim Johnson notched his second save of 2016 with a scoreless ninth. He threw just four balls in the first inning while recording two strikeouts, and benefited from a rare throwout of a runner by AJ Pierzynski to go three-up three-down in the first. However, there is still a chance, depending on how many innings, if any, Quintana pitches during the All-Star game that the plan will indeed hold up. An inning later, Shields gave up Peterson's fourth of the season. They hit into three double plays, though the White Sox hit into two as well. Teheran receives the lowest run support among all qualified major-league starters (2.47 per start), while Quintana gets 2.88 per outing - the fourth-lowest in the game.

Jose Quintana #62 of the Chicago White Sox pitches in the first inning against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park on July 3, 2016 in Houston, Texas. 500 record have caused Quintana's lack of recognition. In the 2014 first half Quintana was 5-7 with a 3.24 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. The other White Sox All-Star is LHP Chris Sale.

"I felt excited for that", Quintana said. "But I think I deserve the All-Star game". All my preparation and work, to get that, it's really exciting for me.

Braves: C Tyler Flowers is day to day after he left with a left hand injury in the second inning. Chicago pounded out eleven hits with Todd Frazier going 2-4 with a homer and three RBI's. while Jose Abreu and Melky Cabrera each drove in a run and scored. RHP Arodys Vizcaino was unavailable because of skin irritation on his right elbow.

White Sox: Quintana (7-8) was tentatively scheduled to start on Friday after the break at the Angels before he was announced to the All-Star roster.

1B Justin Morneau (elbow surgery) was 2-for-11 with a triple, a walk and a run in four rehab games with Triple-A Charlotte entering Friday. Anderson was not yet a member of the White Sox when the previous two triple plays unfolded, so he'll get to be part of some great trivia questions on the south side of Chicago in the future for this. "I think for him it's always going to be about his pace and what he feels like he can handle and where he's at", Ventura said. “We went back and forth numerous times, then finally agreed to the deal, really right toward the end of (our) game, during the game.”.
