Cabrera, Quintana lead White Sox over Blue Jays 11-4

Every starting pitcher is bound to have a bad outing like Biagini's Friday night stinker at some point, especially in their first real go-around in the rotation.

Tommy Kahnle recorded four outs to get the ball to David Robertson, who pitched a ideal ninth for the save as the Sox improved to 31-36 before a sellout crowd of 47,171 while dropping the Jays to 32-35.

The run of solid starts by Biagini - including back-to-back seven-inning outings - ended with a thud as the Jays were crushed 11-4 by the previously mediocre Chicago White Sox. He returned from the DL two weeks later but the nail split just five pitches into the start and he left the game after one inning.

"They approach it good every day, and I know the mentality there", said Gibbons.

"Today my command was really good", said Quintana, who entered the game with the lowest run support in the major leagues at 2.65 per game. Toronto is 15-5 in Happ's last 20 home starts and 11-3 in Happ's last 14 starts against a team with a losing record while the under is 29-13-1 in Happ's last 43 home starts.

"One through nine you can't take anything off", Shields said. "I've been throwing in my lanes a little better on each side of the plate. That's a good sign for sure". He was replaced by Gregory Infante after a single by Troy Tulowitzki. Jennings gave up the base hit to Smoak so the run was charged to Jennings, although Chris Beck gave up the single to Smith Jr.

Donaldson's second error cost the Jays a run in the eighth.

"In that battle with Abreu, if the ball went a foot or two either way, he was probably out", manager John Gibbons said. "Three solo home runs, but he did his job". We realize that we're going to go through stretches like this. If they pitch a good game against you, then things are tough. Something tells me that he'll shake it off just fine too, and fans shouldn't worry about him at all going forward.

Biagini left in the second after Cabrera hit a two-run double and Abreu followed with a double for a 7-0 lead.

Kendrys Morales added a monster home run in the bat-around seventh, a moon shot into the fourth deck of Rogers Centre to give the Blue Jays their 27th multi-home run game of the season.

Kahnle pitched a ideal bottom of the eighth. Leone gave up a double to Omar Narvaez and an RBI single to Hanson in the third inning. Anderson scored on a squeeze bunt by Yolmer Sanchez and took second when Loup threw wildly to first.

White Sox: OF Leury Garcia was pulled from the starting lineup with a left hand complaint, and replaced in the starting lineup by utility player Alen Hanson. For the second straight day the roof was closed midway through the game due to impending thunderstorms. He was 3-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base Friday in his first game in center field.

The game started with a scoreless first inning, but the bats came alive in the second.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons agreed with his starting pitcher, saying he wasn't anxious about complacency in Toronto's clubhouse after the team went 18-10 in May to recover from an 8-17 April.

Prior to this start, Biagini carried a 3.38 ERA, thriving both in the bullpen to begin the year, and in seven (now eight) starts since joining the rotation. Shields (strained right lat) has been on the DL since April 21.
