Guerrero Jr. homers again, Blue Jays beat White Sox 5-2

Guerrero Jr. homers again, Blue Jays beat White Sox 5-2 CHICAGO — Following a slow start, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is showing why he's one of the top prospects in the majors. Guerrero hit another home run, Danny Jansen and Billy McKinney also connected and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Sunday. Guerrero has hit all four of his homers in the past six games and is 7 for 21 with nine RBIs during that span. The 20-year-old didn't homer in his first 13 games after making his debut in late April. "Like I always say, I don't try to hit homers," Guerrero said through a translator. "I just try to put good contact on the ball, and we'll see what happens." Guerrero's two-run drive broke a 1-all tie in the eighth inning.

TORONTO — Rookie Cavan Biggio belted out his first three career hits, including a fourth-inning home run, to ignite a productive day at the plate for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Biggio's big day was part of a season-high 17-hit, four-homer attack in the Blue Jays 10-1 win in the series finale against the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

The victory snapped a four-game losing streak for Toronto, and the positive result arrived a day after the Padres smacked seven home runs in a 19-4 drubbing on Saturday.

The 24-year-old Biggio was promoted from the triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Friday. But the son of Baseball Hall of Famer Craig Biggio went 0 for 6 in his first two games and struck out three times.

Blue Jays promoting another rising son with Cavan Biggio getting the call from Buffalo Blue Jays prospect Cavan Biggio will get his highly anticipated promotion to the big leagues on Friday, when he and infielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr take the Buffalo-Toronto shuttle for a three-game series against the San Diego Padres. Biggio, the super utility infielder who, at 24 years old, was considered Toronto’s No. 9 prospect at the start of the season, has been carving out a name for himself in the minor leagues, starting with a breakout season with the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats last year. He was promoted to Triple-A Buffalo to start this season and has posted a .307/.445/.504 slash line with a .949 OPS, six home runs and 26 RBIs in 42 games.

Cavan Thomas Biggio (born April 11, 1995) is an American professional baseball second baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Biggio had three hits, including his first career home run, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. had four hits and homered for the third straight game, and Toronto beat the San Diego Padres 10-1 Sunday to avoid a "After I got that first hit , I felt like I could finally exhale and finally just play the game," Biggio said.

Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak hit his fifth and sixth home runs in 10 games. His first was a two-run shot as part of a four-run fifth inning and a three-run homer in the eighth.

Rookie third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. doubled and singled to centre field in his first two at-bats, and singled again in the eighth inning.

Gurriel scored the game's first run. He singled, moved to third on Biggio's first career hit and then scored on Brandon Drury's fielder's choice grounder to San Diego shortstop Manny Machado.

Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman lasted five innings for his second consecutive win to improve his record to 3-6. He only allowed a fifth-inning homer to Padres first baseman Wil Myers.

Daniel Hudson, Joe Biagini and closer Ken Giles pitched well in relief of Stroman.

A day after his first major league hit, an RBI double to centre field, Canadian Josh Naylor went 0 for 4, including a pair of strikeouts.

Reliever Robbie Erlin was forced into a starting role when Chris Paddack came down with a stiff neck. Erlin lasted only two innings.

The Blue Jays hit the road for a week with three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays and Colorado Rockies.

Blue Jays offence stays cold in blowout loss to Diamondbacks.
The Blue Jays have been consistent about a couple of things this season: They don’t score many runs at home, and they don’t score many runs when Marcus Stroman pitches. That was the case Friday night in an 8-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks at the Rogers Centre. Stroman had a forgettable night — 52/3 innings, seven hits (two of them homers) and six earned runs — and the Jays scored a lone run for him. They’ve given him 26 runs of support in 81 2/3 innings overall. That’s under 2.9 per nine innings, the lowest in major-league baseball. Stroman, who entered the game with a 2.84 ERA, seventh-best in the American League, fell to 3-8.
