Blue Jays acquire Edwin Jackson, who would set record of 14 teams

Blue Jays acquire Edwin Jackson, who would set record of 14 teams

But Alonso's two-run blast was followed by Anderson's three-run drive two batters later in the decisive fourth - his team-leading eighth home run - and what was a 1-0 Jays lead became a 5-1 Chisox lead with two big swings of the bat.

Sanchez (3-3, 3.21) has tailed off following a good opening to 2019 and is trying to avoid losing a third consecutive start. "Somebody's going to have to get hot", Montoyo said. After four hits in their first seven trips to the plate against White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito, the Jays were held hitless the rest of the way with just one walk. They would add one more in the inning on a fielding error. All of Chicago's offence came in the fourth inning. "Just that one inning".

The run support has been particularly problematic for the Blue Jays, who fell to eight games below.500 with the loss, a new season low. He struck out 11, one shy of his career high, including five of his first six.

Rowdy Tellez had an RBI single in the first inning. It was just the second time in his career Giolito pitched more than five innings without allowing a run.

Toronto's Vladimir Guerrero Jr. doubled in the first, extending his streak of reaching safely to five plate appearances. We're a little top-heavy today which could make it a challenge to squeeze in some bats from the Coors Field game, but with enough options that high up, we can nickel & dime our lineups to save a few bucks if we really have to.

Denver has much better depth from its starting lineup in terms of scoring and production and that will be a key aspect today. If those two are clicking the way I think they will in a game this big, I'm not sure the Nuggets will be able to counter.

Jackson made three minor-league starts for the A's this year before the trade, striking out 19 in 14 2/3 innings but allowing11 earned runs. I've said that time and time again. "I just know who they are".

Jackson was briefly a member of the Blue Jays organization in 2011, but was quickly traded to the St. Louis Cardinals as part of the deal that sent Colby Rasmus north of the border. "We're going to try to show up every night and win ball games and that's our focus, and we'll let nine innings and 27 outs dictate that".

White Sox: RHP Reynaldo López (2-4, 6.38) starts the opener of a two-game series against Cleveland on Monday.

The Blue Jays acquired Jackson from the Oakland Athletics for cash considerations, the teams announced Saturday.

Toronto's Grichuk exchanged comments with Anderson on social media last month after Anderson flipped his bat in a game against Kansas City, sparking a benches-clearing incident.
