Blue Jays beat White Sox to snap 5-game skid


"We're going to try to show up every night and win ball games and that's our focus, and we'll let nine innings and 27 outs dictate that".

Anderson hit a three-run homer in a five-run fourth that included Alonso's two-run homer. I've said that time and time again.

"It's just that everyone is struggling at the same time, "Montoyo said". When you are down by four it seems like 10.

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).

The run support has been particularly problematic for the Blue Jays, who fell to eight games below.500 with the loss, a new season low. Sanchez retired eight of the first 10 batters and notched 11 strikeouts in total - one off his personal high, and the most he's had since September 2016.

Michigan's Beilein to take Cavaliers coaching job
Beilein had taken the Wolverines to the national title game in both 2013 and 2018, losing first to Louisville and then Villanova. That's a heck of a résumé for a coach who seems to have the skills and makeup to succeed at the ultimate level.

Stroman also took issue with an earlier tweet from Seixeiro in which the Sportsnet personality mocked Socrates Brito's hitting struggles after the Jays outfielder was designated for assignment earlier in the weekend. I don't think these guys are hitting.200 all year.

Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Josh Bell had four hits, including a three-run homer, and his first career five-RBI day in a 10-6 victory over the St Louis Cardinals.

But with Springer - who now leads the American League (AL) with 15 home runs - and Bregman swinging hot bats, there is still plenty of firepower in Houston's lineup. "I just know who they are". All of Chicago's offence came in the fourth inning. Frankly, the A's had no reason to find a spot on the roster for Jackson before his opt-out, as he had posted an 8.38 ERA and a 1.655 WHiP in 9.2 innings at AAA. Ryan Burr and Aaron Bummer were flawless in their respective innings out of the bullpen. Rowdy Tellez produced an RBI single to left field two batters later, crossing himself and pointing to the sky when he reached first base. Guerrero had put Galvis into scoring position with a double earlier in the inning.

Jackson was traded on Saturday from the Oakland Athletics to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations. Both shots came against Aaron Sanchez (3-4).

Guerrero, batting second for the third-straight day, appears poised for a breakthrough, building upon his two-hit, two-walk Saturday with a laser-beam double in the first to help set up the game's first run. Garcia went hard into the centre-field wall when fielding a Justin Smoak liner. After four hits in their first seven trips to the plate against White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito, the Jays were held hitless the rest of the way with just one walk. He will be making his second start against Toronto and his first at the Rogers Centre.
