The Jays managed just six hits, four off Pelfrey.
The White Sox grabbed an early lead on back-to-back homers by Frazier and Davidson in the second inning. This adds to Matt Davidson's impressive resurgence this season, that home run makes it Davidson's 5th in his last 6 ballgames.
"We're good", said the right-hander.
"I think all the frustration can be channelled into improving yourself and making sure that doesn't happen again, or, very often". Nothing changes from the group. We realize that we're going to go through stretches like this.
The two losses in the first two contests of the three-game series guarantee the Blue Jays a losing five-game homestand. "I don't know what else to say but timing is key, timing is everything they say". "The thing about baseball, it's not a sport where you go out and overpower somebody". The ball is flying, some pretty good hitters, they swing it over there, they've got some big strong dudes who can do that. That's just the way it is. "It's not like a big physical sport where if you have the bigger, faster guys you're going to dominate". "They're swinging it pretty hot right now".
Todd Frazier added a sacrifice fly to extend the White Sox lead to 3-0. The Jays climbed to within one in their half of the second when Ryan Goins smacked a ground rule double into the gap in right centre, scoring Kendrys Morales.
Stroman got into some trouble in the fifth, but bailed himself - and Donaldson - out of it. Sanchez made one more start before returning to the DL. He also doubled in the first inning.
Not only did they squander seven quality innings of three-run ball from Marcus Stroman, they lost a second straight to the type of team they need to take advantage of before the looming gauntlet of contenders they face leading into and coming out of the all-star break. He allowed a one-out single by Dwight Smith Jr.in the ninth followed by Smoak's 19th homer with two outs.
Cowell planning charity song for fire victims
Stormzy , Liam Payne and The Who will perform on a charity single to raise money for the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster. One of Cowell's phone calls could also be to Adele. 'I feel honoured to be a part of it so to be here today is really important.
Ryan Goins' first triple of the season two batters later drove in the winning run. Jake Petricka pitched 1 2/3 innings of relief, allowing two runs, with Gregory Infante earning the final out of the game.
Tim Anderson tacked on another run on a squeeze play when Yolmer Sanchez dropped down a bunt in the ninth.
"It was the second good one in a row for Happ", Gibbons said.
"It doesn't affect my job", he said. I'm looking forward to getting to that point.
Smith obviously didn't hear him. "We like the long ball", Martin said. "It's kind of been a position where we platoon or somebody has had a injury". "We just wanted to grind back and we did in that sixth inning".
When manager John Gibbons came out of the dugout to mercifully remove the second year Blue Jay, most of the fans gave him a much deserved ovation, with a few boos sprinkled in (naturally). The Blue Jays lineup is loaded with bats, and if they can find a spark, the team can really take off. When asked about that on Saturday, Pillar poured on the sarcasm. It's a near certainty that he'll get a rotation slot next year, so the club wouldn't want to surpass his career high too drastically.
Portugal and Mexico draw 2-2 in Confederations Cup
