After enjoying their only scheduled day off this month, the Chicago White Sox began a stretch of 18 consecutive days with a game in winning fashion. They look to post their fifth victory in six overall contests when they continue their four-game home series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday.

Chicago opened May by playing 15 games in 14 days and finally received a rest on Wednesday before kicking off another busy stretch with a 4-2 triumph over Toronto on Thursday. Ryan Cordell went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, including one on a tiebreaking squeeze bunt in the eighth inning, as the White Sox posted their third straight win over the Blue Jays since losing the opener of the season series last Friday. Freddy Galvis belted a solo home run for Toronto, which recorded only two hits as it fell for the 12th time in 15 contests. The 29-year-old Venezuelan shortstop has driven in a run in three consecutive games and four of his last five.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Blue Jays RH Aaron Sanchez (3-4, 3.75 ERA) vs. White Sox RH Ivan Nova (2-3, 6.29)

After winning his final two decisions in April, Sanchez has lost all three of his starts this month. The 26-year-old Californian’s latest setback occurred at home on Sunday, when he registered a season-high 11 strikeouts but surrendered five runs and nine hits over six innings against the White Sox. The defeat dropped Sanchez to 0-1 with a 4.35 ERA in five career games (three starts) versus Chicago.

Nova’s season has been the opposite of Sanchez’s, as he lost all three of his decisions last month but has won both of them in May. The 32-year-old Dominican allowed one run and five hits over six innings in a victory at Toronto on Saturday, improving to 2-1 in four starts this season in which he yielded a single run. Nova, who has surrendered 12 runs over eight frames in two turns at home this season, is 6-7 with a 5.38 ERA in 16 starts and two relief appearances versus Toronto in his career.

WALK-OFFS

1. White Sox OF Leury Garcia has hit safely in six of his 14 games this month, recording multi-hit performances in each contest.

2. Chicago LHP Manny Banuelos left his outing on Wednesday with a strained left shoulder and is day-to-day but could make his next scheduled start on Monday in Houston as an MRI exam came back clean.

3. Toronto recalled SS Richard Urena from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday while optioning Teoscar Hernandez and sending fellow OF Socrates Brito outright to the Bisons.

PREDICTION: White Sox 7, Blue Jays 4
