CHICAGO (AP) -- Jose Quintana threw 7 1-3 strong innings, Marcus Semien hit a two-run home run and Avisail Garcia added a solo shot to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night.

Quintana (9-6), who entered the game with the most no-decisions in the American League at 17, allowed two runs and five hits. Addison Reed pitched the ninth inning to record his 39th save.

Toronto starter J.A. Happ (4-7) threw 110 pitches in five innings, allowing three runs and eight hits.

Semien's homer in the second inning opened the scoring. With Dayan Viciedo on first and one out Semien ripped an 0-2 pitch from Happ down the line and well over the fence for a 2-0 lead. For Semien, who was called up on Sept. 4, it was his first major league homer.
