Addison Reed wasn’t about to let another win slip out of Jose Quintana’s grasp Tuesday.
All three of Reed’s blown saves this season have come in games started by Quintana, including two in the past month as Quintana suffered through a five-start winless stretch.
Quintana worked 6⅔ innings for his first win in more than a month, Reed earned his second four-out save of the season, and the Chicago White Sox held off the Toronto Blue Jays, 3-2, Tuesday night for a rare victory at Rogers Centre.
‘‘It kind of meant a little more,’’ Reed said of his 21st save in 24 chances. ‘‘I was trying to get [Quintana] the win today. It was nice to settle it up for him.’’
The AL Central leaders won in Toronto for just the fourth time in 20 games dating to 2007.
‘‘It was good for us, a big win,’’ White Sox manager Robin Ventura said.
Quintana (5-2) gave up two runs and eight hits to win for the first time since July 5 against Texas.
‘‘He’s a tough kid,’’ Ventura said. ‘‘He pitched great.’’
Brett Myers got one out in the seventh, Matt Thornton retired two batters in the eighth, and Reed ended the inning by fanning pinch hitter Yan Gomes with a runner at third.
Ventura called the four-out save ‘‘something you don’t normally do,’’ but Reed had no problem handling the job.
Ventura juggled his lineup, moving Alex Rios into the third spot, shifting Adam Dunn from third to cleanup, and dropping Kevin Youkilis from second to fifth. Dewayne Wise hit second for Chicago.
