Blue Jays Roll White Sox

In a game heard on WHOW, Chris Bassitt pitched 6 1/3 innings before leaving because of a sore lower back, Cavan Biggio hit a three-run home run and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Monday night.


Bassitt (3-2) called manager John Schneider and the trainer to the mound i the seventh after bouncing his first pitch to Luis Robert Jr. Zach Pop came on and finished the inning.


Robert made a spectacular catch in center field to take a home run away from Toronto slugger Matt Chapman, but little else went right for the struggling White Sox. Chicago (7-16) has lost five straight, 10 of 12 and 13 of 17.


Vaughn opened the scoring with a two-run double off Bassitt in the third, but the Blue Jays answered with a four-run fourth off White Sox right-hander Lance Lynn.


Robert soared over the low wall in deep center to deny Chapman for the second out of the inning, but the next five Blue Jays batters reached safely. Whit Merrifield hit an RBI double before Biggio followed with his second home run.


Winless in five starts to begin the season, Lynn (0-3) allowed four runs and five hits in five innings.


Chapman made it 5-2 with an RBI double off Kenyan Middleton in the seventh. It was Chapman’s AL-leading 11th double of the season. Chapman leads the AL with 16 extra-base hits.


Mike Clevinger (2-3, 3.26) starts for the White Sox Tuesday against Blue Jays RHP José Berríos (1-3, 6.23).
