Oh Canada Welcomes White Sox To Take On Blue Jays

The White Sox will continue their lengthy road trip by traveling to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays on Thursday evening. There they hope that they can notch some wins to make up for the two disappointing losses they suffered in Texas. The first game will see Philip Humber take on Brandon Morrow.

Humber, at 3-3 with 3.10 ERA and 0.94 WHIP on the season, has been one of the better cogs in the Sox rotation all year. He's coming off of a start against the Dodgers in which he gave up just two runs on five hits over seven innings, but was still denied a win. Humber has never started against Toronto, but has pitched 2.1 innings of relief against the Blue Jays. Over those innings, he's got a 15.43 ERA and 3.86 WHIP. Edwin Encarnacion is 1-for-1 against Humber with a double.

Pitching for the Jays will be Brandon Morrow. Morrow has been a bit uneven on the year and is currently 2-2 with a 5.06 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. In his last start, against Houston, he gave up four runs on nine hits in six innings. Over his career, Morrow is 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA and 1.71 WHIP against the White Sox. Gordon Beckham is 2-for-4 against Morrow with a double, while Paul Konerko is 1-for-3, also with a double.

The weather in Toronto is expected to be cloudy and cool, with temperatures in the upper-50s at game time. First pitch is at 6:07 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on CSN.
