Blue Jays 7, White Sox 5(10)

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 12, 2013
Jose Bautista hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning and Rajai Davis scored on a wild pitch in the 10th to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-5 win over the Chicago White Sox at a dimmed U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday night. Chien-Ming Wang made his first start of the season after signing with the injury-riddled Blue Jays before the game, lasting 7 1-3 innings while giving up five runs and 10 hits. During the 10th, a handful of bulbs in the light standards above the infield at U.S. Cellular Field went out as Ramon Troncoso (0-1) prepared to throw his 2-1 pitch to Adam Lind with the game tied at 5. The umpires conferred with Toronto manager John Gibbons and Chicago's Robin Ventura for a minute or two before continuing play and Davis scored on Troncoso's wild pitch. Toronto took a 7-5 lead when Maicer Izturis came home on Munenori Kawasaki's double after Tyler Flowers dropped Alexei Ramirez's relay throw. Brett Cecil (2-0) went 1 2-3 innings for the win and Casey Janssen pitched a scoreless 10th for his 13th save in 14 tries, getting Adam Dunn to ground out with runners on first and second to end the game as the lights returned to full strength. With two outs, Bautista tied the game at 5-all with a home run off Addison Reed to the corner in left field. Bautista hit a 1-2 pitch for his 15th home run of the season, handing Reed his second blown save in 21 attempts. Dunn hit a solo home run in the second and Conor Gillaspie hit a three-run home run in the fourth for the White Sox, who had won three straight. Dunn went 1 for 4 after going 4 for 4 with two home runs Monday and is 8 for 15 with four home runs over his last four games. Jose Quintana pitched 6 1-3 innings, giving up four runs (two earned) and six hits while striking out five. He hasn't won since May 21. The White Sox made two errors while he was pitching and added Flowers' error in the 10th, giving them 42 this season after having 70 last year. Before Tuesday, Wang hadn't pitched in any game since June 1, when he threw seven shutout innings against Durham. His previous major league start was Sept. 23 against the Brewers, and his last win was June 12 of last year against the Blue Jays, when he was with the Washington Nationals. To make room for Wang, the Blue Jays designated IF Andy LaRoche for assignment. LaRoche was 1 for 4 in one game with the Blue Jays. Toronto gave Wang a 2-0 lead in the second thanks to White Sox miscues. Mark DeRosa reached on Ramirez's error, advanced to third on Lind's ground-rule double, and scored on Flowers' passed ball. Izturis' single then brought in Lind. The White Sox have given up 23 unearned runs after allowing 30 last year. Dunn cut the lead in half in the bottom of the second on his 17th home run of the season. Chicago scored four times in the fourth to take a 5-2 lead, capped by Gillaspie's three-run home run, his fourth of the season and first since May 1 at Texas. The White Sox tied the game at 2 on Dayan Viciedo's two-out single, driving in Alex Rios. In the fifth, Encarnacion trimmed the White Sox lead to 5-4 on his 18th home run of the season, a two-run shot. Quintana hung a 1-0 breaking ball, and Encarnacion hit a 407-foot home run deep into the left field seats, giving him 53 RBIs. NOTES: Gibbons said SS Jose Reyes would need ''a couple weeks'' on a rehab assignment before coming back. Reyes has been on the disabled list since April 13 with a sprained left ankle. . White Sox OF Dewayne Wise worked out before Tuesday's game, and Ventura said he hopes he can go Triple-A Charlotte ''in the next few days'' on a rehab assignment. Wise has been on the DL since June 2 with a strained right hamstring. . Toronto C Henry Blanco, who was designated for assignment June 7, has been released. . The White Sox returned LHP Leyson Septimo from his rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte, reinstated him from the 60-day DL, and outrighted him back to Charlotte. . Wednesday's pitching matchup is Toronto's Esmil Rogers (1-2, 3.60) against Chicago's Chris Sale (5-4, 2.68).
