The Chicago White Sox found some offense and snapped a three-game slide on Saturday with a 7-2 triumph, rallying for multiple runs in three separate innings. The White Sox will try to continue scoring in bunches and earn a series win when they visit the Toronto Blue Jays for the finale of a three-game series on Sunday.

Chicago scored three or fewer runs in seven of the previous eight games – going 2-6 in that span – but registered 11 hits on Saturday and opened up a tight game with two runs in the seventh inning and two more in the eighth. Catcher James McCann went 4-for-5 with two runs scored in the victory to push his batting average to .376 and give him multiple hits in five of his last nine starts. The Blue Jays are struggling on offense and pushed across a run in just five of the last 47 innings while falling to 2-9 in their last 11 games. Toronto, which topped three runs twice in those 11 games, will try to muster some support on Sunday for right-hander Aaron Sanchez while the White Sox counter with righty Lucas Giolito.

Tony’s Pick TEAM
CHI WHITE SOX 120

PITCHING MATCHUP: White Sox RH Lucas Giolito (3-1, 4.06 ERA) vs. Blue Jays RH Aaron Sanchez (3-3, 3.21)

Giolito turned in his best start of the season at Cleveland on Tuesday, scattering three hits over 7 1/3 scoreless innings while matching a season high with eight strikeouts. The 24-year-old missed two weeks with a hamstring strain but has been solid since his return, yielding a total of three runs in 12 1/3 frames. Giolito was ripped for five runs and nine hits across 4 1/3 innings by Toronto on July 28 last season but escaped without a decision.

Sanchez worked a season-high seven innings against Minnesota on Tuesday and was reached for three runs on six hits – one homer – and three walks in a loss. The outing marked the second quality start of the season for the 26-year-old, who failed to go more than five innings in any of his previous three turns. Sanchez struck out seven in a quality start at home against Chicago last season, yielding three runs in six frames without factoring in the decision.

WALK-OFFS

1. The Blue Jays acquired RHP Edwin Jackson from the Oakland Athletics on Sunday and will become Jackson’s record 14th team.

2. Chicago SS Tim Anderson, who was the American League Player of the Month for March/April, is 8-for-38 in May.

3. Toronto CF Randal Grichuk homered in each of the first two games of the series.

PREDICTION: White Sox 3, Blue Jays 1
