Mike Foltynewicz allowed five hits in seven innings, Jeff Francoeur and Jace Peterson homered and the Atlanta Braves beat the Chicago White Sox 2-0 on Sunday.

 

Foltynewicz (3-3), who grew up in the far southwest suburbs of Chicago, had a career-high 10 strikeouts without allowing a walk. He struck out the side in the seventh on 12 pitches.

 

The 24-year-old right-hander won for the first time since beating the Giants on May 30. He was placed on the disabled list on June 4 with a bone spur and made his third start since returning.

Chris Withrow pitched a scoreless eighth for the Braves and Jim Johnson finished for his second save in four chances.

 

White Sox starter James Shields (4-10) allowed six hits, including both homers, in 7 2/3 innings. He struck out two and fell to 2-3 with Chicago.

 

Jose Quintana (7-8) was tentatively scheduled to start on Friday after the break at the Angels before he was announced to the All-Star roster. Now that he was named to the team Ventura will go with RHP Miguel Gonzalez on Friday and Shields on Saturday.
