Before returning home to play the Toronto Blue Jays Friday night at U.S. Cellular Field, the White Sox went 2-4 on a West Coast trip to Seattle and San Francisco and scored a grand total of 12 runs.
"A team always goes through highs and lows," Sox first baseman Jose Abreu said thriugh an interpreter. "That's just part of baseball. We've had a lot of tough games. I don't look at that as a negative. We're just playing the season and that's just the way it goes. You have highs, you have lows. You try to stay as consistent as you can."
The White Sox' bats were due to break out, and that's what happened in an 11-5 win over Toronto.
Abreu, who was 8-for-39 (.205) with 2 RBI in his last 11 games, led the 17-hit attack by going 3-for-5 with 3 RBI.
The Sox scored 5 runs in the first inning while knocking Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman out of the game. The White Sox also scored 5 runs in the fifth inning, and every starter but Tyler Flowers had a hit.
Adam Dunn was 3-for-5 with 2 RBI and Dayan Viciedo was 2-for-3 with 2 RBI.
White Sox starter Hector Noesi (7-8) got the win after pitching 5 innings and allowing 5 runs on 8 hits.
