Blue Jays’ bats come alive in much needed win against the White Sox

The Toronto Blue Jays welcomed the Chicago White Sox into town for a three game series. The White Sox came into the game with the worst record (14-32) in the MLB, and after today, it stayed the same.

The Blue Jays sent Jose Berrios (4-3, 2.82) to the mound to face off against Erick Fedde (4-0, 2.60).

Berrios threw 6 innings, allowing three runs on a season high eight hits, along with two walks and six strikeouts to earn his fifth win of the year.

Fedde, on the other hand wasn’t so lucky, also threw 6 innings, but allowed five runs on seven hits, walking one and striking out two, being handed his first loss of the season.

Toronto’s bats helped them win consecutive games for the first time in over three weeks.

However, Chicago struck first with a Korey Lee RBI single in the top of the 2nd, scoring Paul DeJong to give the Sox a 1-0 lead.

The Jays struck back. In the bottom half of the 2nd, Daulton Varsho hit a two run shot to right field to give the his team a 2-1 lead.

An inning later in the bottom of the 3rd, the Blue Jays extended their lead to 4-1, thanks to a Danny Jansen single and a Vladimir Guerrero Jr. single.

Chicago got a run back with a Paul DeJong single, cutting the lead in half.

The game stayed the same until the bottom of the 6th, when a Bo Bichette RBI double extended the Blue Jays’ lead to 5-2.

In the top of the 7th, the White Sox would cut the deficit to just two runs after Paul DeJong hit a solo homer. The former Blue Jay had a solid day at the plate, going 3 for 4, with a homer, two RBI, also scoring two runs.

Toronto would however spoil DeJong’s day by adding more runs in the bottom of the 7th. Danny Jansen continued his hot streak by hitting a two run homer to extend the Blue Jays’ lead to 7-3.

Jansen would produce more in the bottom of the 8th, giving the Jays a 9-3 lead with a two RBI single. Jansen performed well, going 3 for 5 with one homer, five RBI, scoring two runs. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (1 for 3, one RBI, two runs, two walks), Bo Bichette (4 for 4, one RBI, one run), and Daulton Varsho (2 for 4, one HR, two RBI, two runs) also enjoyed good days at the plate, propelling the Blue Jays’ offence.

Erik Swanson induced the final three outs to give the Blue Jays a 9-3 victory and give them game one of their three game series against the White Sox at home.

Yusei Kikuchi (2-3, 2.60) will face Garrett Crochet (4-4, 4.18) as the Blue Jays try to take the series against the White Sox tomorrow night.
