Blue Jay Beatdown

May 26 at Toronto


How was the trophy defended today?
Not very well.

Short Take: Jays pound out 15 hits, clobber Sox 8-2.

The White Sox arrived in Toronto fresh off the heels of a sweep of longtime nemesis Oakland; after an off day, the Sox were greeted rudely by their hosts north of the border. Freddy Garcia, who entered the game on a personal 7-game winning streak, was lit up for 5 runs on 12 hits in 5.1 innings as the Jays defeated the Sox 8-2.

Garcia's counterpart tonight was Ted Lilly, and the Sox were unable to solve him with the exception of Paul Konerko. Konerko hit two solo home runs off Lilly, the only runs he would allow in 7 innings of work.

Toronto drew first blood in the bottom of the first as Alex Rios led off the inning with a home run. The Sox got that run back in the second when Konerko led off with a home run to tie the score at 1. The Jays took a 3-1 lead in the third thanks to a 2-run home run by Vernon Wells. That would end up being all the offense the Jays would need tonight, but they continued to pour it on anyway.

Troy Glaus hit a mammoth solo home run in the 5th off the restaurant in centerfield, and Lyle Overbay doubled and eventually scored on a single to put the Jays up 5-1. With two outs in the 6th, Konerko connected on his second home run of the game, and the score was 5-2. Toronto would add to their lead in the 7th off Sox reliever and former Blue Jay Cliff Politte. Politte allowed two runs in the 7th to allow the Jays to go up 7-2. The Jays added one more in the 8th on a solo home run by Reed Johnson, and three Jays relievers retired all 8 batters they faced in support of Lilly to close out the contest.

The loss drops the Sox overall record to (31-16), and they currently sit 2.5 games behind the surprising Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. The Sox will look to get back on track tomorrow behind Jose Contreras (5-0, 1.90). Contreras will face off against Casey Janssen (3-3, 3.46) in a late afternoon tilt in Toronto. Gametime is 3:07 pm CDT and will be televised on CSN.
