Here's a quick look at the Chicago White Sox's 7-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday:

How it happened: The White Sox gave Jose Quintana some much-deserved run support after wasting a solid effort from the young lefthander in his last start against the Cleveland Indians. Tyler Flowers' three-run home run in the second inning got them on the board. The Sox extended their lead with an RBI double from Alexei Ramirez in the fourth and a home run by Alex Rios in the sixth. Paul Konerko drove in another in the seventh with a sacrifice fly. Quintana didn't allow a run over 6 2/3 innings and struck out seven to earn his first victory of the season.

What it means: The Sox have a chance to salvage a dreadful road trip by taking three of four from the Jays with a victory on Thursday. The Sox bats came alive on Wednesday with 11 hits, including two more for Dayan Viciedo, who has six hits in his last 11 at-bats. Meanwhile, Adam Dunn continued to struggle, going 0-for-4, extending his hitless streak to 21 at-bats.

Next: The White Sox wrap up their series -- and 10-game road trip -- Thursday when Chris Sale (1-1, 5.21 ERA) is opposed by R.A. Dickey (1-2, 5.82 ERA) at 6:05 p.m. CT.
