TORONTO, ON – Second baseman Orlando Hudson hit a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the ninth…
Jays Tee-Off on Garland, Upset White Sox 7-3
The American League Central leading White Sox would actually get on board first, like they have for most of the season in the first inning thanks to Paul Konerko's twenty-fourth home run of the season, a two-run shot off Towers to jump on top early.
The Toronto Blue Jays would get on board in a big way in the second inning where they would collectively as a team, hit or the cycle, rapping off seven consecutive hits. Of those, Reed Johnson would triple home Toronto's first run and was followed by back-to-back home runs by Orlando Hudson and Russ Adams to catapult the Jays to a 5-2 lead.
Josh Towers was cruising along after a rough first inning, limiting the Sox to two hits after the opening frame until they finally caught up to him for a run in the sixth, when with two outs, Aaron Rowand would single to center to bring home Kornerko for Chicago's third run of the game.
The Jays would score two more runs; an Adams' solo home run in the fifth and an Orlando Hudson sacrifice-fly in the sixth to complete the scoring at 7-3.
Towers would leave the game after seven and two-third gutsy innings, allowing three runs on eight hits, striking out seven and walking none. Justin Speier, who has been untouchable for the better part of July, continued his string of impressive appearances, coming on to retire the final four outs of the game.
Towers evens his record to (8-8) on the season, with Jon Garland (15-5) being tagged with the loss after giving up seven runs on thirteen hits in six innings of work.
Both teams will be back at in on Wednesday where the Blue Jays will send out David Bush (1-5) to the mound in search of his second win, but he'll have to out-pitch Orlando Hernandez (8-3) to get it, who goes for the White Sox.
The game on Wednesday can be seen on TSN starting at 8pm EST with radio coverage on The FAN 590am beginning at 7:30pm EST.
