White Sox Cough Up Lead, Fall to Blue Jays

Three of their big strong dudes did the damage Saturday. His last start came June 11 at Seattle, where he got his first win of the season. I feel like it's pretty good right now. The Jays managed just six hits, four off Pelfrey. In his past 10 starts against Toronto, Shields is 6-1 with a 2.14 ERA.

"I feel pretty solid to go", Shields told reporters after his final rehab start. "Nothing changes from the group, we realize we're going to go through stretches like this and that's why we stay confident day-in and day-out".

White Sox color commentator Jason Benetti dubbed Melky Cabrera, Omar Narvaez, and Yolmer Sanchez "The South Side Buntmen" after their heroic bunts put two more runs on the board and secured the victory. Relief pitcher Aaron Loup also picked up a throwing error in the ninth.

"Not at all because they approach it good every day and I know the mentality in there", said the manager. "The thing about baseball, it's not a sport where you go out and overpower somebody". That's just the way it is. They're (the White Sox) revamping over there and they've got some good young players, made some good trades and they've got some guys coming up. If they throw a good game against you, things are tough, that's the way it is, if they're swinging the bats. The Blue Jays are now 0-5 when Stroman starts against the White Sox.

Ryan Goins got one back in the bottom half, hitting a ground-rule double over the center-field fence.

Whether he thrived on Friday or not likely wouldn't have affected his fate, as he is the most logical candidate to be moved to the bullpen when Sanchez returns, which could be sooner than later. He also doubled in the first inning.

The Blue Jays got within a run in the seventh, as Dwight Smith Jr. got his first career RBI with one out.

In 16 2/3 innings in his three starts with the White Sox this season, he has allowed nine hits, 10 walks and three earned runs while striking out 16.

"That was huge because they had the go-ahead run at first and the tying run at second", Kahnle said.

Cabrera's two-run double in the second inning added to Chicago's lead.

Ryan Goins felt the emotion after putting the Toronto Blue Jays ahead in the sixth inning. In the end, it didn't matter.

"One through nine you can't take anything off", Shields said.

"It doesn't affect my job", he said. "Being in the league as long as I have, I still got excited out there. It's kind of been a position where we platoon or somebody has had a injury".

"We kept trying to grind". Pearce, who returned from the disabled list earlier in the day, led off the third with his fifth homer.

"Obviously, (Biagini) was off, there's no question about that", said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. But whoever plays left for the Jays, the club needs better defence and more production from the position if it hopes to reach and surpass the.500 level this season. When asked about that on Saturday, Pillar poured on the sarcasm. They have won their past two series. "So we're just going to take our time doing it".

"I wanted to go deeper in the game".

Because he's been so successful at the Major League level, people often forget that he had never made a start as a big leaguer before May 7th of this year. "We played o.k". And we're still finding ways to hang around and win some games.
