Jose Quintana strikes out a season-high 10 in six innings for first-place Chicago.

TORONTO — Former Rays catcher Dioner Navarro hit a go-ahead two-run triple in the seventh inning, and the White Sox beat the Blue Jays 4-0 Wednesday night for their sixth straight win.

Jose Quintana struck out a season-high 10 in six innings for Chicago, which at 16-6 is 10 games above .500 for the first time since Sept. 25, 2012. Quintana allowed five hits and walked three, improving to 4-0 with a 0.68 ERA in four starts at Toronto. He has won consecutive starts and improved his ERA to 1.47, passing teammate Chris Sale for fourth-best in the AL.

Zach Duke, Nate Jones and David Robertson pitched an inning each, finishing Chicago's majors-high fifth shutout.

Marco Estrada gave up one hit through six innings but was knocked out in the seventh. Estrada allowed three runs and three hits in 62/3 innings and is winless in three starts.

Chicago's three-game sweep was the first by a visitor at Toronto since the Angels from Sept. 10-12, 2013. The Blue Jays, the defending AL East champions, were shut out for the first time this season and have lost six of their past eight.

Todd Frazier singled to begin the seventh, and Melky Cabrera hit into a forceout. Brett Lawrie walked, Avisail Garcia struck out and Navarro got his fifth career triple, a drive off the wall in right-center.

Jesse Chavez relieved, and Austin Jackson tripled. During the next at-bat, plate umpire John Tumpane ejected Blue Jays manager John Gibbons for arguing. It was the first ejection of the season for Gibbons, who came out and continued arguing with Tumpane and crew chief Dan Iassogna.

Toronto is off for the first time in 17 days today before opening a three-game series at Tampa Bay on Friday.
