Blue Jays hit 4 homers in 11-9 victory, snapping Chicago win streak at 5

July 08, 2012 - 6:13 PM

CHICAGO - Colby Rasmus hit one of four Blue Jays homers and had three RBIs to help Toronto end the Chicago White Sox's five-game winning streak with an 11-9 victory Sunday.

The first-place White Sox go to the All-Star break with a 47-38 record and a three-game lead in the AL Central. Chicago manager Robin Ventura was ejected in the top of the ninth after charging to the plate to heatedly argue a ball and strike call with home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn.

Jason Frasor (1-1), the third of five Blue Jays' relievers, was credited with the win and Casey Janssen pitched the final 1 2-3 innings for his 12th save in 13 chances. He gave up two ninth-inning singles before striking out Alejandro De Aza to end it.
