Jackson dealt to Blue Jays, on cusp of historic record

"Hopefully he's going to give us a spark", Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said.

TV cameras caught Stroman clearly upset with Montoyo as he approached the mound.

In the seventh inning of Saturday's White Sox-Blue Jays tilt in Toronto (CHW 7, TOR 2), Jays right-handed starter Marcus Stroman gave up a pair of singles followed by a line-out and then followed by another single. He went six innings, surrendering five runs on nine hits with two walks and one hit batsmen.

The Chicago White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays meet in the rubber match of their three game set in Major League Baseball action from Rogers Centre on Sunday afternoon. Jackson was pitching in Triple-A before the trade.

The Blue Jays (16-24) have now lost four series in a row and 10 of their past 12 games. He allowed just one run on four hits. "Last year, that's one of those innings that would probably get away from me".

"He just had everything going and worked extremely efficiently, so he was able to get deep into the ball game", White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. Toronto edged the White Sox 4-3 on Friday, but otherwise had no luck on home field en route to falling a season-low eight games under.500 on the season.

Vlad watch: Guerrero had reached base in five consecutive plate appearances before a fly out in the third.

Four of Toronto's first seven batters got hits, including three of the first four, but Giolito allowed just two batters to reach after the first.

Freddy Galvis scored from third base on Tellez's single in the first inning. He is batting.191 on the year after devouring minor-league pitching last season to the tune of a.381 batting average.

The Blue Jays acquired Jackson from the Oakland Athletics for cash considerations, the teams announced Saturday. Guerrero finished 1-for-4 on Sunday.

Up next: The Jays get an off day in the Golden State before taking on the San Francisco Giants in a two-game series starting Tuesday at 9:45 p.m.

Blue Jays Injuries: Matt Shoemaker: 10-day IL (knee), Clayton Richard: 10-day IL (knee), David Phelps: 10-day IL (elbow), Clay Buchholz: 10-day IL (shoulder), Ryan Borucki: 60-day IL (elbow), Dalton Pompey: 60-day IL (concussion), Devon Travis: 60-day IL (knee). Jackson is 35 and had been toiling this season in Oakland's minor-league system.
