Jackson dealt to Blue Jays, on cusp of historic record

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak didn't seem impressed with his 4 walks against the White Sox. But we were — here's...

Giolito allowed one run in seven innings to win his second straight start, Tim Anderson and Yonder Alonso homered and Chicago beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-1 on Sunday. Eric Sogard is 5-for-28 with a triple, a home run and three RBIs over the last 10 games for Toronto. Aaron Sanchez will start game three and is 3-3 with a 3.21 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season.

"His approach right now is outstanding", Montoyo said. Ivan Nova got the win to improve to 2-3 on the year after allowing one run on five hits over six innings of work.

The Blue Jays acquired the 16-year veteran from Oakland on Saturday for cash.

Toronto couldn't sustain the quick start and finished with just four hits. Bryce Harper is still looking to get untracked for the Phillies (one home run and a.194 batting average in May).

This and that: Toronto pitchers struck out a season-high 16 batters.

Rowdy Tellez had an RBI single in the first inning. Garcia went hard into the centre-field wall when fielding a Justin Smoak liner. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. added two hits as well while Billy McKinney had a double and Luke Maile chipped in a base hit to round out Toronto's offense as a team in defeat.

Rangers starter Adrian Sampson gave up nine hits and five earned runs in the loss to the Astros. I've said that time and time again.

"They weren't adjusting to it, so we just stuck with that, " Giolito told the Chicago Sun Times after relying on his fastball and changeup for all but four of his 105 pitches. It could be rough waters for the White Sox hitters in the first couple of innings, but the Jays are on the cusp of overuse and that could be trouble.

Blue Jays starters have done better than anticipated this season, though the unit's dealt with a rash of injuries of late.

Montoyo said Jackson was preferred to Triple-A alternatives because Toronto's pitching prospects are not performing. They have 23 runs in span and have been held to two or fewer runs in five of their last six contests.
