White Sox Vs. Blue Jays: Adam Dunn Homers Twice In 3-2 Extra-Innings Loss

Nate Jones allowed two hits and an inherited runner to score in the bottom of the 11th as the Blue Jays walked off in the first game of the series with a 3-2 win Monday night in Toronto.

Toronto opened the scoring in the bottom of the third when Edwin Encarnacion singled home Anthony Gose. Adam Dunn's first homer of the night to center tied things in the top of the fourth. The White Sox estimated the home run traveled 469 feet.

In the seventh, Moises Sierra homered to give the Blue Jays the lead again, but Dunn hit another home run in the top of the ninth to tie things up. His 398th career bomb tied him for 52nd on the all-time home run list. It also was his 1,000th career RBI.

In the 10th inning, the White Sox helped set an MLB first.

In the 11th, Leyson Septimo allowed a one-out walk before being pulled. Jones entered and allowed two singles to score the winning run.

Jake Peavy went eight innings in the start and allowed five hits and two earned runs. Dunn went 3-for-5, while A.J. Pierzynski went 1-for-4.
