White Sox Vs. Blue Jays Score Update: Chicago and Toronto Tied After 6 Innings

A three-run home run in the sixth inning by Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Kelly Johnson has the Jays tied with the Chicago White Sox, 4-4. Left-fielder DeWayne Wise has knocked in all four Sox runs, driving in A.J. Pierzynski and Alexei Ramirez with a single in the second inning, and following it up with a two-run homer in the fourth. The Blue Jays got on the board in the fifth, when a throw to third by Pierzynski caromed off baserunner Omar Vizquel and into left field, allowing Vizquel to come home. Johnson's blast to right field tied the game.

Before the Johnson home run, White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd had been solid, scattering five hits and striking out six through five innings. Floyd, who brought a 4.43 ERA into tonight's contest, is looking to even his record at 9-9. Blue Jays pitcher Ricky Romero has struggled, giving up eight hits to the Sox through six innings of work.
