CHICAGO (CBS) After another frustrating loss, Chicago White Sox starting pitcher John Danks had words for Toronto’s Jose Bautista.

“I told him to run the bases,” Danks said after he saw Bautista slam his bat after hitting a popup with the Blue Jays leading by eight runs. “He was out there acting like a (bleeping) clown.”

Danks has had a rough season, pitching better than his 0-8 record, 5.25 earned run average and a 1.51 WHIP would indicate.

But Sunday’s loss might have been his worst of the season. Danks lasted only four innings, giving up nine earned runs on nine hits, including three home runs in the White Sox 13-4 loss.

Bautista, on the other hand, has been having a great season, his 20 home runs leads all of baseball.

“He’s a good player, “Danks said. “He’s had a great 1 1/2 years. No doubt, he’s one of the best hitters in the league.”

After losing three of four in Toronto, the White Sox start a three-game series with the Red Sox.
