White Sox 7 Blue Jays 0

That was less than fun.

Our 'stopper' didn't. J.A. Happ had quick 1st inning, 7 pitches, 3 fly outs. That was the end of the fun. He gave up a 3-run homer in the second and that was all the White Sox really needed. Happ went 5.2, giving up 6 hits, 5 earned, 1 walk with 3 strikeouts. He gave up 2 home runs.

Ramon Ortiz pitched the last 3.1, much the way you figured he would. 5 hits, 2 earned, 1 walk, 2 k.

Our offense did next to nothing. We had 6 hits on the night, 2 each for Rajai Davis, Edwin Encarnacion and Munenori Kawasaki. The rest of the lineup didn't get on base. Brett Lawrie needs a few days to get his timing back, but I'm so glad to have his glove at third. He's fun to watch.

Jays of the Day: No one. Rajai had the high mark at .028 WPA.

Suckage numbers: Happ (-.215) and Melky Cabrera (-.112).

We still had a pretty active GameThread, 57 commenters put up 740 comments.

Great job in a losing cause fishedin.

Tomorrow the Jays try to split the series against Chris Sale, not an easy draw. R,A,Dickey starts for the good guys
