·2 min read

TORONTO (AP) — Luis Robert hit a two-run home run, Carlos Rodón won in his return from the injured list and the Chicago White Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-7 on Thursday.

José Abreu, César Hernández and Eloy Jiménez each hit solo shots as the White Sox earned a split in the four-game series.

Rodón (10-5) allowed two runs and five hits in five innings. Activated off the injured list before the game, Rodón hadn’t pitched since Aug. 7 because of a sore shoulder.

Craig Kimbrel finished for his first save with the White Sox, his 24th in 27 chances this season.

Marcus Semien hit two home runs for the Blue Jays.

Chicago’s first three home runs came off starter Hyun Jin Ryu (12-7).


BALTIMORE (AP) — A day after ending a 19-game losing streak, major league-worst Baltimore got a grand slam and six RBIs from Pedro Severino to rout Shohei Ohtani and Los Angeles.

Ohtani led off the game with a homer, his MLB-leading 41st, but that was the only highlight for the Angels, who have lost five of six.

Baltimore won two games in a row for the first time since July 30-31. Keegan Akin (1-8) picked up his second career win, allowing one run and three hits in a season-high seven innings.

Elvis Peguero (0-1) was charged with five of the six runs the Angels allowed in the fifth inning.


MILWAUKEE (AP) — Jonathan India hit a three-run homer, Nick Castellanos also went deep and Cincinnati avoided a three-game sweep by NL Central-leading Milwaukee.

Sonny Gray (6-6) allowed three hits in six scoreless innings for the Reds, who still trail the Brewers by 8 1/2 games. Cincinnati holds the second NL wild card spot.

Brewers starter Brett Anderson (4-8) worked 4 2/3 innings before leaving the game with tightness in his right hip. He was charged with three runs on four hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts.
