Romero, Rasmus Pace Blue Jays Past White Sox 9-5

CHICAGO (AP) — Colby Rasmus went 5 for 5 with a homer to help Ricky Romero earn his seventh win as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 9-5 on Tuesday night.

Rasmus and David Cooper hit two-run homers in the fifth off Phil Humber and both finished with three RBIs in Toronto’s 13-hit attack.

Romero (7-1) pitched seven-plus innings, allowing six hits and five runs — three earned. He gave up an unearned run in the first, a two-run homer to A.J. Pierzynski in the seventh after Toronto had built a 7-1 lead, and then a solo shot to Adam Dunn in the eighth before he was replaced by Francisco Cordero.

Chicago played without cleanup hitter and first baseman Paul Konerko, who was scratched from the lineup for an unspecified reason. The White Sox lost for just the second time in 12 games.
