| No Comments | No TrackBacks

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Jose Quintana pitched three perfect innings in his first appearance this spring, and Jared Mitchell and Conor Gillaspie hit home runs to lead the White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday afternoon.

The White Sox improved to 4-2-2 as Quintana (two strikeouts) Hector Santiago (two scorless innings) and Nate Jones, Donnie Veal, Jhan Marinez (one scoreless inning each) also contributed to the team shutout.

Gillaspie, a left-handed hitting third baseman acquired from the San Francisco Giants in a trade, was given a look at first base but showed more of the same at bat, hitting his second homer of the spring. He also grounded out and struck out.

Former first-round pick Jared Mitchell hit a long opposite-field homer to left and doubled in a run, the double a soft liner to center that skipped past a diving Chris Heisey.

Third baseman Brent Morel, who could make the team as a utility player if he shows some versatility in the field, looked comfortable handling two chances at shortstop. He went 0-for-3 at the plate.
