CHICAGO - 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 (8-6) 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 (5-13) went 4 1-3 innings and allowed three runs on nine hits.
