White Sox Beat Toronto Blue Jays 3-1


TORONTO (AP) — Juan Pierre’s ninth-inning infield single drove in the tiebreaking run and the Chicago White Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Thursday night.

The White Sox, who had won just two of their previous 12 games in Toronto, posted their 13th victory in the last 19 overall.

Pierre went 2 for 4 with two RBIs and extended his hitting streak to 11 games.

Jesse Crain (2-1) pitched one-third of an inning for the win and Sergio Santos finished the ninth for his eighth save in nine opportunities.

Marc Rzepczynski (2-1) allowed two runs, none earned, in one inning for his first loss of the season.

Yunel Escobar homered, his fifth, for the Blue Jays, who have lost three straight and six of nine.

    Marc Rzepczynski is one very dangerous pitcher. If I was a left handed batter I would be shaking in my boots to face him. Nasty, I glad we caught him at the right time. Great husel by Juan
