White Sox Vs. Blue Jays: Pale Hose Seek Series Victory In Thursday's Finale

The Chicago White Sox have a chance for a series victory after winning the past two games in Toronto against the Blue Jays, and wrap up their four-game set at the Rogers Centre Thursday night.

The Sox haven't won three straight north of the border since August of 2006. They'll go with struggling starter Francisco Liriano (3-10, 5.35 ERA) to try to make it happen, but Liriano's track record against the Jays isn't good -- he's lost all three career starts against Toronto.

The Blue Jays, who have played themselves out of contention in the AL East, have lost 13 of their last 17 games. The White Sox (64-52) entered Thursday with a two-game lead in the AL Central.

Adam Dunn and DeWayne Wise have paced Chicago's offense in Toronto. Dunn has three home runs in the series (five total hits) and Wise is 3-for-8 with five RBI. But Dunn is hitless in five at-bats against Toronto starter Aaron Laffey.

The White Sox head to Kansas City after tonight's game.
