The White Sox' Jose Abreu hits a home run during the eighth inning against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday in Denver.

DENVER – Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia each hit two of the White Sox' six homers, powering the Sox to a 15-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

Jose Quintana pitched seven sharp innings, and Tyler Flowers and Alexei Ramirez also went deep for their first homers of the season. The White Sox had six total homers before Tuesday's fireworks.

The long balls were the first of the season for both Garcia and Abreu, the Cuban slugger who signed a $68 million, six-year contract in October. Garcia finished with four hits and three RBIs, while Abreu had a three-run homer in the seventh and a two-run shot an inning later.
