The White Sox looked to reverse their recent mini-slump, as they had lost three of their last four games entering tonight.

However, the Blue Jays came back to take the series opener. Let take a look at how it happened.The StartersLance Lynn, who is having an outstanding season, pitched another masterpiece. The Blue Jays did very little against him in the first five innings. Even when they managed to put a runner on base, Lynn did a great job of shutting down the threat.The only hiccup came in the sixth inning, when Toronto made much more solid contact than in any other inning against Lynn. Reese McGuire led off with a double, but the White Sox caught a break when McGuire tried to advance to third on a ground ball. Csar Hernndez made an aggressive but great play to nail McGuire for out No. 1.

Even those batted balls were unlikely to get through for hits , but the White Sox were due for some good luck Yoan Moncada Jersey.Manoah final line was six innings, one run, five hits, three walks, and five strikeouts.
