Giolito looks to stay hot as White Sox visit Blue Jays

15 May 2019

The homer gave the Blue Jays more runs with one swing than they scored in a three straight losses to Minnesota earlier this week.

The Jays have lost four series in a row and fell to a season-worst eight games below.500 at 16-24.

The Blue Jays have won Sanchez' last six Sunday starts and six of his last seven starts at home. I've said that time and time again. He also set a season high with 103 pitches in six innings, giving the overworked bullpen a break for the second straight day after Marcus Stroman worked 6 1/3 innings on Saturday.

"Other than that he's been outstanding", Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said of Sanchez. For his career, the native of Neu-Ulm, Germany has racked up 1,456 strikeouts in over 1892.1 innings across over 300 starts.

His lone start against Toronto came previous year, and the righty left without a decision after yielding five runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings before the White Sox rallied for a 9-5 home victory.

Anderson, who has developed a reputation for post-homer celebrations, said he wanted to flip his bat after going deep against Toronto in this series but didn't after connecting off Sanchez.

Blue Jays Injuries: Matt Shoemaker: 10-day IL (knee), Clayton Richard: 10-day IL (knee), David Phelps: 10-day IL (elbow), Clay Buchholz: 10-day IL (shoulder), Ryan Borucki: 60-day IL (elbow), Dalton Pompey: 60-day IL (concussion), Devon Travis: 60-day IL (knee).

James McCann matched his career-high with four hits to lead the White Sox to a 7-2 win against the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon at Rogers Centre.

Joe Biagini (2-1) came on and struck out Moncada for the final out of the seventh, stranding a runner at third. And hits remain remarkably hard-to-come-by for the offence, with the energy from Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s promotion dissipating as he endures normal growing pains for a 20-year-old transitioning to the majors.

White Sox: OF Eloy Jimenez (right ankle) ran the bases before the game. Her condition was not immediately known. Jackson was pitching in Triple-A before the trade.

White Sox: Minor league OF Preston Tucker was released and signed with a team in the Korean Baseball Organization. Acquired from San Diego on April 2, Brito hit.077 in 17 games, striking out 17 times in 39 at bats.

Giolito will make his seventh start of the season. The Chicago pitching staff as a whole has an ERA of 5.29. Making his ninth appearance this season, Stroman has received a total of eight runs in support. That chat didn't help, as Sanchez gave up a three-run homer to Anderson after for a 5-1 White Sox lead.
