Blue Jays Vs. White Sox Score Update: Chicago Trails 3-1 Through 5 Innings

The Chicago White Sox are once again trailing to the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday, this time by a score of 3-1 through the fifth inning. The White Sox are hoping to avoid a sweep, which would certainly seem to signify the end of Chicago's recent hot streak.

Blue Jays pitching has continued to confound White Sox hitters on Thursday, as Henderson Alvarez has allowed just one run on four hits through his first five innings on Thursday. Chicago initially led 1-0 after the first inning, but White Sox starter Jake Peavy faltered in the third frame to relinquish the advantage.

A two-run single by Mike McCoy with the bases loaded allowed the Blue Jays to take back the lead in a single swing, and they added an insurance run later in the inning on an error by shortstop Alexei Ramirez.

Overall, Peavy has allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits, striking out three and walking four. Those four walks already represent the most that Peavy has had in an outing this season.
