White Sox knock off Blue Jays 11-4
(TORONTO) - Pitching at Rogers Centre again was all Jose Quintana needed to end his long winless stretch. Getting a lot of run support helped, too. The left-hander pitched seven strong innings to pick up his first win since May 2 as the Chicago White Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 11-4 Friday night. Quintana (3-8) improved to 5-0 in five career starts in Toronto after coming in 0-4 over his previous seven outings. Melky Cabrera accounted for the majority of those in his return to Toronto, where he played from 2013-14. The left fielder hit his seventh home run and knocked in five runs to lead the White Sox to their fifth straight win at Rogers Centre, and their eighth victory in their last nine games against the Blue Jays. Toronto starter Joe Biagini (1-6) lasted just 33 pitches, getting yanked with none out in the second inning. The right-hander gave up eight hits and seven runs in the shortest start of his career. All of the Blue Jays' scoring came on home runs, with Kendrys Morales and Steve Pearce hitting solo shots early on and Justin Smoak adding a two-run shot in the ninth inning. It was Pearce's 19th home run of the season to leave him one shy of matching his career high.
