Jose Quintana was outstanding for the White Sox Sunday with nothing to show for it.

The lefthander suffered his second no-decision of the young season and 29th career no decision after pitching six innings against the Cleveland Indians, working through two rain delays and a career-high 121 pitches.

But the Sox ended up winning 4-3 on a walk-off two run home run by Alexei Ramirez off Indians closer John Axford in the ninth.

Quintana left with the score tied 1-1, the only run off him a Michael Brantley home run in the fourth.

The Sox went ahead in the eighth when rookie Marcus Semien homered off Indians starter Corey Kluber, but the Indians scored twice in the ninth against Matt Lindstrom for a 3-2 lead. Both runs were unearned after an error by first baseman Jose Abreu allowed the tying run to reach. The go-ahead run scored on a Lindstrom wild pitch.

The Sox only run for Quintana came in the fourth when Conor Gillespie singled and later scored on Dayan Viciedo’s single.

The Sox stranded three men in scoring position while Quintana pitched, including men at second and third in the sixth.

Rain delayed the start of the afternoon game for 1 hour 15 minutes and interrupted it again in the fourth for 45 minutes.
