Toronto Blue Jays shore up depleted rotation by acquiring Edwin Jackson

Toronto Blue Jays shore up depleted rotation by acquiring Edwin Jackson

Now comes the rubber match of the three-game series that ends Sunday afternoon.

TOP PERFORMERS: Randal Grichuk leads the Blue Jays with 17 extra base hits and is slugging.470.

Ivan Nova (2-3) allowed one run and five hits in six-plus innings to win his second straight start. The home run was Garver's seventh of the season.

Giolito has won all three of his road starts this year, posting a 2.84 ERA in 19 innings.

In 2018, Giolito led the White Sox with 10 wins in his first full major league season and was one of three American League pitchers age 24 or younger to record at least 32 starts and 170 innings pitched, joining teammate Reynaldo Lopez (24) and the New York Yankees' Luis Severino (24).

Interestingly, this is technically the second time that Jackson has been a member of the Blue Jays. Sanchez, now 3-4 with a 3.75 ERA, blamed it on pitch selection.

Montoyo said he was impressed with Sanchez's ability to bounce back from a rough start to the game.

Left-hander Ryu Hyun-jin no-hit the Washington Nationals through 7.1 innings and finished eight scoreless, yielding just a hit and walk while striking out nine in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 6-0 victory.

The game marked the finale of a six-game homestand for the Blue Jays.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Jackson could start as early as Wednesday against the San Francisco Giants.

He was later seen holding a calmer discussion with Montoyo and Walker.

"They weren't adjusting to it, so we just stuck with that, " Giolito told the Chicago Sun Times after relying on his fastball and changeup for all but four of his 105 pitches. I don't think these guys are hitting.200 all year. When they aren't playing, they get mad at me.

The Blue Jays so far have been able to stifle hot-hitting White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu, who was 0-for-5 with three strikeouts Saturday. The Blue Jays have scored two or fewer in eight of their past 10 games.

"I thought about flipping it there and then I heard Ricky (Renteria) say 'Run, '" said Anderson, who had paused at the plate to admire his drive.

"He trusts the routine he has, he's very consistent whether he's getting hits or not, or whether the outcome is what you want it to be. I just know who they are". The right-hander got no help Tuesday night versus Minnesota, giving up a first-inning run and a two-run homer in the sixth while pitching seven innings of Toronto's 3-0 defeat.
