Quintana went seven innings, allowed six hits and gave up just two runs, throwing 70 of his 109 pitches for strikes. He won for the first time since July 29, also against the Tigers.
OF Moises Sierra was activated from the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning by the White Sox, who opened a spot for him by trading LF Alejandro De Aza to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

RHP Chris Bassitt was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following the White Sox's split doubleheader on Saturday, after making his major league debut by starting the second game. He is expected to be returned to the White Sox once rosters expand Sept. 1, when the White Sox will start a road trip in Minnesota.
RHP Hector Noesi (8-9, 4.75 ERA) has really started to make a sales pitch for himself to be part of the White Sox's starting rotation next season. Since lowering his ERA from 14.21 when they claimed him off waivers April 25 to 4.75 now, Noesi has worked at least seven innings in four of his past five starts. He'll try to make it five of six on Tuesday in Minnesota when he faces the Twins. Noesi went seven innings in his past start, earning the win against the Cleveland Indians by allowing just two runs on six hits and striking out five.
