HOUSTON (AP) - Adam Dunn hit a three-run home run and Conor Gillaspie added two RBIs to lead the Chicago White Sox to a 7-2 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night.

The White Sox trailed by two and had managed just one hit off of Collin McHugh (2-2) through the five innings before Dunn launched his soaring homer into the second deck in right field with one out in the sixth to put Chicago on top.

White Sox starter Jose Quintana (2-3) allowed seven hits and two runs in five innings for his first win since April 8.

Tyler Flowers had an RBI in the sixth and Gillaspie drove in two runs with a double in Chicago's three-run eighth inning.

Rookie George Springer and Jason Castro had an RBI each for the Astros.
