Duffy (4-5) picked up the win Wednesday after holding the White Sox to two runs on six hits while striking out five over six innings.
Duffy delivered a quality start and did not issue any walks for the first time this season. The 30-year-old held the White Sox hitless until the third inning and scoreless until the sixth, when he surrendered a two-run homer to Ryan Goins.

After his solid outing, the southpaw owns a 4.52 ERA, 1.39 ERA and 69:31 K:BB heading into his next start against the Braves.
