After Stroman was pulled from Saturday's game while battling through a seventh-inning jam, the Jays starter had a somewhat heated exchange with manager Charlie Montoyo and pitching coach Pete Walker, with all parties playing down the situation after the game. Jackson had been pitching in Triple-A before the trade. Teoscar Hernández hit a leadoff single in the second and Randal Grichuk walked to begin the fourth, but those were the only blemishes in a stretch that saw Giolito retire 20 of 22 batters.
Following a 4-3 loss on Friday, Chicago bounced back on Saturday by picking up a 7-2 win over the Blue Jays in Toronto.
"It seems like, of his nine starts, there's always that one inning".
"Just got to make pitches, really, that's what it comes down to", a contrite Sanchez said.

Nathaniel Mendez-Laing became the second player from a promoted team to score twice at Old Trafford in the Premier League after Louis Saha for Fulham in August 2001.
It was a odd outing for Sanchez, who apart from that one inning was otherwise dominant, with 11 strikeouts, one less than his career high, in six innings.
Toronto meets the Chicago White Sox in the finale of this three-game series. Can't sit here and dwell on it. Leadoff man Freddy Galvis singled and advanced to third on a hard-hit double by Vladimir Guerrero Jr. They would add one more in the inning on a fielding error. I've said that time and time again. López faced the Indians in his previous start, allowing three runs in six innings. The righty retired the first six batters he faced and struck out five consecutively after Leury Garcia flew out to open the game. Sunday was Tellez's first Mother's Day without his mom Lori, who died of cancer last August. Reliever Daniel Hudson, Tim Mayza and Joe Biagini combined for five Ks in three shutout innings. He is expected to join the rotation in the coming days, and when he throws his first pitch for Toronto, will set a record as he will pitch for his 14th major league franchise. Guerrero finished 1-for-4 on Sunday. Toronto is off on Monday before embarking on a six-game trip that begins Tuesday in San Francisco against the Giants.
Blue Jays: RHP Trent Thornton (0-4, 5.06) is scheduled to start Tuesday at San Francisco and RHP Tyler Beede (0-1, 18.69).
Athletics manager Bob Melvin told reporters (including Ben Ross of NBC Sports) that the organization "thinks so much" of Jackson and that the team "love [s] him".
