Blue Jays get busy in 11th inning, top White Sox to start twin bill

The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Chicago White Sox 6-2 in the first game of a doubleheader. The Blue Jays scored six runs in the 11th inning, with consecutive RBI singles from George Springer, Bo Bichette, Daulton Varsho, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Cavan Biggio added a two-run double to cap off the inning. Toronto had only one hit in the first 10 innings.

In the 11th inning, Oscar Colas and Andrew Vaughn hit a double and a single, respectively, for the White Sox, resulting in runs. Yimi Garcia recorded the final two outs to earn the save. The game’s only runs were scored in the 11th inning.

Both starting pitchers, Jose Berrios for the Blue Jays and Lance Lynn for the White Sox, kept the game scoreless through the first seven innings. Springer and Elvis Andrus each had a single, which were the only hits allowed by the starters.

Lynn pitched seven shutout innings, allowing only one hit, one walk, and recording 11 strikeouts. He retired the final 14 Blue Jays batters he faced. Berrios also pitched seven shutout innings, allowing one hit, one walk, and striking out six. He has not allowed a run against the White Sox in 14 innings this season.

The White Sox set down 22 consecutive Toronto batters before walking Whit Merrifield in the 10th inning. However, they escaped further trouble by striking out the next batter, Biggio. In the bottom of the 10th, Toronto intentionally walked Luis Robert, but Jordan Romano retired the next three batters, including two strikeouts.

Aaron Bummer took the loss for the White Sox, giving up five earned runs and five hits in one-third of an inning. Chicago had successful replay reviews in the eighth inning but failed to score against Trevor Richards.

In conclusion, the Toronto Blue Jays emerged victorious in the first game of the doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox. The game remained scoreless until the 11th inning when the Blue Jays exploded for six runs. Both starting pitchers delivered dominant performances, keeping the opposing teams at bay. The White Sox had a chance to win in the 10th inning but couldn’t capitalize.
