SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Jose Quintana went from getting nobody out in his last start to facing the minimum 15 batters in five dominant innings Sunday for the Chicago White Sox in a 5-5 tie with the Colorado Rockies.

Quintana entered with a 30.00 ERA and had allowed seven hits, two walks and nine runs in his previous outing.

Wilin Rosario's leadoff single in the second was the lone hit off Quintana, who then picked off Rosario at first base. The left-hander struck out NL batting champion Michael Cuddyer twice.

Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood allowed five hits and hit a batter with a pitch in a three-run second inning that included Blake Tekottte's RBI double.

Chatwood gave up five runs and 10 hits before leaving with one out in the sixth.

The game was stopped after nine innings.
