TORONTO (AP) — Pinch- runner Breyvic Valera scored the tiebreaking run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 on Monday night.
Valera ran for Reese McGuire after the Blue Jays catcher singled off Craig Kimbrel (2-4) to begin the inning. Valera took second on a wild third strike to Bo Bichette, advanced to third on a groundout, and scored when Kimbrel uncorked another wild pitch, this time to Teoscar Hernández.
Tim Mayza (3-1) pitched a perfect eighth inning to earn the win, and Jordan Romano finished for his 12th save in 13 chances.
Toronto spoiled a strong outing by Chicago’s Lance Lynn and handed the White Sox their fourth loss in five games.
The Blue Jays, who came in having lost seven of nine, improved to 9-14 in one-run games.
Lynn allowed one run and four hits in seven innings, but didn’t figure in the decision for the fifth consecutive start. The right-hander has not won since a road victory at Milwaukee on July 25.
