MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Jeff Keppinger and Adam Dunn staked Chicago to a three-run lead with third-inning homers Friday and the White Sox held on to down Minnesota 5-2.

Quintana (7-4) allowed two runs on six hits and was backed up by three relievers. Addison Reed worked the ninth for his 29th save.
