Blue Jays Blank White Sox

José Berríos struck out a season-high nine over seven innings, Danny Jansen homered twice and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the White Sox 7-0 Tuesday night, extending Chicago’s losing streak to six.


Berríos (2-3) allowed four hits - all singles - and walked one in his second straight seven-inning outing.


Berríos had lost three of his previous four starts against the White Sox but beat them Tuesday for the first time since September 2020. He’s made 23 starts against Chicago, his most against any opponent.


Berríos struck out the side in the first and didn’t allow a runner to reach scoring position until Elvis Andrus advanced from first to third on Andrew Benitendi’s two-out single in the sixth. Eloy Jiménez took a called third strike.


Nate Pearson and Anthony Bass finished with hitless relief as the Blue Jays won for the 14th time in 20 games.


Kevin Kiermaier hit a two-run triple, and George Springer had three hits and drove in a run for Toronto.


Chicago has lost 11 of 13 and 14 of 17. The White Sox were blanked for the second time this season and have three runs and 10 hits in their last three games.


Clevinger (2-2) allowed a season-high six runs and seven hits in five innings. All three batters he walked came around to score.


Michael Kopech (0-2, 6.97) starts Wednesday’s series finale against Blue Jays LHP Yusei Kikuchi (3-0, 3.80). Kopech has a 20.77 ERA in four games against Toronto, allowing 10 earned runs in 4 1/3 innings.
