Chicago,  IL (SportsNetwork.com)  - Dayan Viciedo belted a three-run homer and 
Conor  Gillaspie was 4-for-4 with three doubles, an RBI and two runs scored to 
lead  the Chicago White Sox to a 6-2 win over the Cleveland Indians to open a 
three-game series. 

Jose  Quintana  (3-4) pitched six  innings for the win,  giving up two runs on 
five hits and two walks with five strikeouts. 

The White Sox are 5-3 against the Indians this season after losing 17 of 19 to 
their AL Central rivals last year, including 14 in a row to end the season. 

Josh Tomlin (3-2) struck out eight but took the loss in five-plus innings. The 
right-hander gave up five runs, but only two were earned. 

Michael  Brantley's  RBI single in  the third gave the  Indians a 1-0 lead but 
third  baseman  Lonnie Chisenhall's two-out error  in the bottom of the inning 
allowed the White Sox to go in front for good. 

Marcus  Semien reached on the error -- the ball went off Chisenhall's glove -- 
Gillaspie followed with a single and both runners scored on Viciedo's blast to 
left field on a 1-2 curveball, his fifth homer of the season. 

"A  hanging curveball. I  probably tried to do too much with it," said Tomlin. 
"It stayed up in the zone too long." 

Brantley drew a leadoff walk in the sixth inning, stole second base and scored 
on  Ryan Raburn's  single to right field.  Raburn tried to take second base on 
the  hit by was thrown out by Moises Sierra on a call that was upheld after an 
Indians challenge. 

Gillaspie  led off  the bottom of the  sixth with a double off Tomlin, went to 
third  on  Viciedo's single  and scored  on Alexei  Ramirez's hit off reliever 
Bryan Shaw. Alejandro De Aza followed with an RBI single to make it 5-2. 

It was Gillaspie's first career four-hit game. 

"It  was  just one of those  days," he said. "A  couple of times they threw it 
right in the spot where I was looking. That's just the way it goes." 

He  added an  RBI double in the seventh  inning and Scott Downs came in to get 
an  inning-ending out  after Cleveland loaded the bases against Zach Putnam in 
the eighth. 

Downs worked around a walk in the ninth inning to pick up his first save since 
2012.
