White Sox beat Jays, get back to 500
CHICAGO (AP) — Melky Cabrera homered, Todd Frazier drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the seventh, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Friday night.
The White Sox started a six-game homestand on a winning note after taking three of four at Boston, while the Blue Jays lost for the fourth time in five games.
Cabrera drove a solo homer off Aaron Sanchez in the fifth and finished with three hits against his former team.
Frazier broke a 2-2 tie with a sharp single to left with two outs in the seventh against Jesse Chavez (4-2) after Tim Anderson led off with a double under third baseman Josh Donaldson’s glove.
David Robertson escaped a bases-loaded jam in the ninth for his 19th save in 21 chances. He struck out Edwin Encarnacion swinging at a low 3-2 fastball and retired Michael Saunders on a popup to end the game.
Nate Jones (3-2) worked a scoreless inning in relief. Carlos Rodon gave up two runs and six hits while pitching into the sixth.
