"They're swinging it pretty good right now", said Stroman of the White Sox.
Martin's sixth-inning homer knocked out White Sox starter James Shields, making his first appearance since April 16 after a lat strain.
Mike Pelfrey (3-5) struck out five and gave up one run over six innings for Chicago. He's been one of the Blue Jays' most reliable starters of late as well, going seven innings in each of his last two starts. Hanson would go on to score after an error by Josh Donaldson (2nd error of the game) cost the Jays a run.
Melky Cabrera accounted for the majority of those in his return to Toronto, where he played from 2013-14. "The most important thing is to keep working, keep the things that we have been doing, and we believe in ourselves".
Morales' two-run shot in the seventh inning, his 15th homer of the season, reached the fourth level of Rogers Centre, a drive estimated at 460 feet.
ANGELS 9, ROYALS 0: Albert Pujols, Cameron Maybin and Luis Valbuena each homered and Alex Meyer dominated for six innings, helping the Los Angeles Angels beat Kansas City to snap the Royals' six-game winning streak. He hit a sacrifice fly as a pinch hitter on Thursday against the Baltimore Orioles. So I was trying to be real methodical with my rhythm. "We like the long ball", Martin said.
Biagini was very bad and the White Sox made mincemeat of the rumpled righthander, socking him for seven runs (six earned) off eight hits all in a disastrous first two innings.
Pearce, who batted eighth and played left field, made a quick impact in his first game back as he launched a Jose Quintana fastball just over the wall in left field during the third inning. "I know D-Bo (White Sox first-base coach Daryl Boston) took him out to work him out there, and he felt comfortable enough that he believed he could hold his own out there, and obviously he had a nice night with the stick".
Happ, a 20-game victor in 2016, won for the first time this season last Sunday in Seattle, pitching six scoreless innings against the Mariners.
The Jays were pleased to have utility man Steve Pearce back in the lineup after being sidelined since May 15 with a calf strain.
In order to make room for Shields on the active roster, rotation mate Miguel Gonzalez (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list. Dwight Smith Jr. would then hit a base hit up the middle cutting the lead to 3-2. "He had some at-bats down in the minor leagues, but not a lot of them". That's a good sign for me. "I'm glad to be back". "I saw on a replay that it hit the top of the wall". Chicago is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Toronto. This will be his fourth start of the season.
In his youthful exuberance, Smith, who said he couldn't hear Pillar make the call for the ball, ranged far to his left to try to make the catch. He is 1-2 with a 3.93 ERA in three career starts against the White Sox.
Kendrys Morales added a two-run homer and Pearce hit an RBI double, both in the seventh inning, to complete the scoring.
Barnes pitched around a walk in the eighth and Roberto Osuna pitched a flawless ninth. Blue Jays RHP Marco Estrada (4-5, 4.54 ERA) will face Rangers RHP Austin Bibens-Dirkx (2-0, 3.28 ERA) on Monday in the opener of a four-game series at Texas.
Happ is 1-1 with a 4.11 ERA in three starts since coming off the disabled list.
