Toronto's Randall Grichuk hits a three-run home run in the first inning Friday

It was a odd outing for Sanchez, who apart from that one inning was otherwise dominant, with 11 strikeouts, one less than his career high, in six innings.

"They weren't adjusting to it, so we just stuck with that, " Giolito told the Chicago Sun Times after relying on his fastball and changeup for all but four of his 105 pitches. "That's what it all comes down to", he said. "You try to limit the damage every inning, this one just got away".

His lone start against Toronto came past year, and the righty left without a decision after yielding five runs and nine hits in 4 1-3 innings before the White Sox rallied for a 9-5 home victory.

Giolito has won all three of his road starts this year, posting a 2.84 ERA in 19 innings.

"It's just that everyone is struggling at the same time, "Montoyo said. It's not a good feeling".

Buchholz was the latest Blue Jays starter to go down with injury. Montoyo said Jackson will get the start against the Giants on Wednesday.

"I'd say he's locked in right now", Montoyo said. I don't think these guys are hitting.200 all year. I still like the White Sox I recommended, though I am slightly less bullish on them now tnan I was earlier this morning.

Anderson hit a three-run homer in a five-run fourth that included Alonso's two-run homer.

Giolito (4-1) gave up four hits, matched his season high with eight strikeouts and improved to 2-0 with a 1.64 ERA in his past four games. He allowed all five runs off nine hits. He struck out 11, one shy of his career high, including five of his first six. Ryan Burr and Aaron Bummer were flawless in their respective innings out of the bullpen.

Rowdy Tellez hit an RBI single in the first inning. Charlie Tilson and Yolmer Sanchez each had two RBIs with Tilson going 2 for 4 with a double while Sanchez had a home run. Two singles later, Tim Anderson cranked a three-run homer to centre.

White Sox center fielder Leury García stayed down after crashing into an unpadded section of the outfield wall as he hauled in Justin Smiak's deep drive in the third. Announced attendance at Rogers Centre was 24,222.
