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

When José Bautista isn't at the plate for the Toronto Blue Jays, he's a father to three young girls.

It is named the Rogers Centre and it is there where they continued their mastery over the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday afternoon.

The White Sox grabbed an early lead on back-to-back homers by Frazier and Davidson in the second inning. The Jays managed just six hits, four off Pelfrey. "Luckily, he made a couple of mistakes, and the boys took advantage of them".

"I kind of felt like I was not staying within my mechanics very well", Biagini said. "I'm sure we'll rattle off 10 in a row here soon". Nothing changes from the group. It was only the third multi-error game of his career. I think the relief corps, on top of that, has been able to come in and hold the offense on the opposite side. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey tells you what you need to know before you go. That's just the way it is.

"It's not like a big, physical sport where if you have the bigger, faster guys you're going to dominate". "They play the game the right way and they're unsafe". He consistently got behind the White Sox hitters, and they feasted on 2-0, and 3-0 offerings.

Stroman got into some trouble in the fifth, but bailed himself - and Donaldson - out of it.

Frazier hit his 11th homer of the season with one out in the second inning, taking a 3-1 pitch from Stroman to deep left field.

Goins answered for the Blue Jays in the bottom of the inning, hitting a ground-rule double that scored Kendrys Morales.

Pearce will likely sit out Saturday's game in favour of Dwight Smith Jr.as Gibbons tries to ease the latter back into regular duty. He caught Melky Cabrera's comebacker off the hop, wheeled around to throw to shortstop Troy Tulowitzki at second and start the 1-6-3 double play to end the inning.

Tim Anderson tacked on another run on a squeeze play when Yolmer Sanchez dropped down a bunt in the ninth.

The White Sox have won six straight games at the Rogers Centre dating to July 8, 2015, and also have taken nine of their past 10 meetings with the Blue Jays overall.

And he was the winning pitcher, which he had not experienced since May 2, a span of seven winless starts. In the end, it didn't matter.

At 32-33 coming into the game, Toronto had another chance to get back to.500 for the first time since opening day.

"The team is playing well right now", Cabrera said. "It's a conversation that I have to have with them and that's about it. I got my at-bats, saw my pitches, and I'm ready". On Saturday, it was Smith's turn in left.

Manager John Gibbons was somewhat surprised by Biagini's struggles as he failed to record a strikeout. When asked about that on Saturday, Pillar poured on the sarcasm. We signed him to be a big part of this team. "So we're just going to take our time doing it". Biagini will provide another boost to a steadily stronger bullpen, and it's a move that will help protect his arm from gaining too many miles this season. And we're still finding ways to hang around and win some games.

Adam Jones and Mark Trumbo got Baltimore started with successive first-inning shots, and Schoop finished the long-ball display with drives in the fourth and seventh.
