The Chicago White Sox entered Tuesday night as winners of 14 out their last 16 games, but the South Siders received a dose of their own medicine from the Toronto Blue Jays. The top two hitters in the Blue Jays' lineup -- third baseman Brett Lawrie and center fielder Colby Rasmus -- combined for seven hits as Toronto upended the Sox 9-5 at U.S. Cellular Field. Chicago falls to 31-24 with the loss, while Toronto improved to 29-26.
The Blue Jays broke open a 1-1 game with four runs in the fifth and two runs in the sixth. Rasmus and first baseman David Cooper each cranked two-run homers in the fourth. Ramus also clubbed an RBI double in the eighth to finish 5-of-5 with three RBI and four runs.
Sox starter Philip Humber allowed seven hits and five runs through five innings to fall to 2-3 on the year. A.J. Pierzynksi and Adam Dunn each hit homers for Chicago in the loss.
