CHICAGO -- The Toronto Blue Jays got the ball up in the air and then they got out of town with a good feeling in the last game before the All - Star break. The Blue Jays, who had lost 8 of their previous 12 games, hit four homers Sunday to end the Chicago White Sox's five - game winning streak with an 11 - 9 victory.
Colby Rasmus and Edwin Encarnacion had two - run homers in the first and Kelly Johnson and Jeff Mathis also connected on a windy day at U.S. Cellular Field when Chicago pitching yielded nine walks.
The first - place White Sox got a three - run homer from Alex Rios and kept pecking away, but couldn't overcome the four - run first - inning deficit and go the All - Star break with a 47 - 38 record and a three - game lead in the American League's Central Division.
