CHICAGO (AP)  Dayan Viciedo had three hits and drove in two runs, Jose Quintana pitched six effective innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3 Tuesday night.

Quintana won for the first time since he last faced the Twins, on Aug. 16. He allowed one run while scattering eight hits with five strikeouts and two walks.

After a 2-15 stretch, the White Sox won the first two games of the series against the Twins for their first series victory since Aug. 27-29 against the Astros. They have won five straight against the Twins.

White Sox closer Addison Reed pitched a scoreless ninth for his 38th save in 44 opportunities, benefiting from Alejandro De Aza's leaping catch of Trevor Plouffe's flyball against the center-field wall.

Twins starter Mike Pelfrey went 4 1-3 innings and allowed three runs on nine hits.
