Morales, Martin help Blue Jays beat White Sox to snap skid

Cabrera, Quintana lead White Sox over Blue Jays 11-4

Cabrera, Quintana lead White Sox over Blue Jays 11-4

They are 15-12 at home this year and 14-24 on the road.

PADRES 7, BREWERS 5: Cory Spangenberg and Chase d'Arnaud each hit solo home runs in the 11th inning, lifting San Diego over Milwaukee in yet another slugfest.

Russell Martin's seventh home run of the season barely made it over the wall, but like most of his homers this year, his timing was impeccable.

The Toronto Blue Jays now sit 6.5 games behind the first place New York Yankees, which is pretty good based on how the season started for Toronto.

What got served up instead was an arduous 11-4 blowout victory by the White Sox in what the Blue Jays certainly hope is not a harbinger of things to come in the first of a three-game weekend set.

Abreu hit a two-run triple to right field in the game's third at bat, driving in Hanson and Cabrera.

On Monday, the Toronto Blue Jays will open up a four game set with the Rangers in Arlington. He had a nice little breaking ball, kept us honest. "Kind of built that way". He homered in the second inning Saturday and has extra-base hits in six straight games. Roberto Osuna worked the ninth.

"Yeah, like I said (on Friday), we had a team meeting about it and we decided we were going to wait a couple of more weeks, just to reach (.500)", he said.

Shields (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list in advance of his scheduled start Sunday against the Blue Jays, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Todd Frazier added a sacrifice fly to extend the White Sox lead to 3-0.

Shields tipped his cap to Martin on the tying homer.

"I knew coming in today that the crowd would be pretty good because of the guy on the other side", he said.

Chicago White Sox Jose Abreu connects on a two-run single against the Toronto Blue Jays during fifth inning American League baseball action in Toronto, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

"We've been swinging the bats better", White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. But with two runners on, reliever Tommy Kahnle got Goins to hit into a double play to end the inning.

Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez threw off a mound Friday in the latest step in his recovery from a finger injury. The Jays climbed to within one in their half of the second when Ryan Goins smacked a ground rule double into the gap in right centre, scoring Kendrys Morales. Pearce's double to the left-field corner added another run as he drove in Tulowitzki and advanced Martin to third. Already leading to his left in his follow-through, right-hander Swarzak threw his glove behind his back to knock the ball down, then calmly picked the ball up and threw to first to get the out. He was batting.205 with four homers and 10 RBIs in 27 games before he went on the DL.

Pitching at Rogers Centre again was all Jose Quintana needed to end his long winless stretch.

Blue Jays: Toronto announced the trade of RHP Jarrett Grube from Triple-A Buffalo to the Columbus Clippers for cash considerations.

Quintana has gone 0-4 with a 6.51 ERA in his last seven starts and hasn't pitched more than 5 1/3 innings since May 19.

Cabrera connected for his seventh homer, a three-run drive in the fifth inning that made it 11-2.

Chicago is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 9-20 in their last 29 road games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 road games against a left-handed starter.
