Smoak, Donaldson lead Blue Jays past White Sox as tempers flare

Smoak, Donaldson lead Blue Jays past White Sox as tempers flare

Jose Abreu added two hits and two RBI. Despite Trout's quality outing and Albert Pujols' pair of dingers, the Blue Jays still came back behind a Steven Pearce grand-slammy. He made just one appearance after that in the post-season, allowing two earned runs over a third of an inning in the Blue Jays' 5-3 win over Texas in the A.L Division Series. The Sox have now won three of four meetings with Toronto this season. In his 131.1 innings and 9-5 record this year, Stroman has a 3.08 ERA with 109 Ks and 43 BBs. The young shortstop then stared down Stroman, who immediately took offense and approached Anderson near the White Sox dugout at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.

"It seemed like he wanted to talk the entire way back to the dugout after striking out", Stroman said.

Cubs 4, Brewers 2: Rookie Victor Caratini hit a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning to lift Chicago over Milwaukee. In that time he's given up more than two earned just once, and more than one earned just twice. With Norris taking over on the mound, Ezequiel Carrera and Russell Martin singled to cut the lead to 10-7 and, after Justin Smoak grounded out, Kendrys Morales walked to set the table for Pearce's heroics.

Trump's tough call about Venezuela and oil
The sanctions freeze the Venezuelan president's assets under USA jurisdiction and prevent Americans from doing business with him. Since protests ratcheted up in April, at least 125 people have died; 10 people were reportedly killed during protests on Sunday.

For the second consecutive game, Josh Donaldson delivered a first-inning home run for the Blue Jays.

Cardinals 3, Diamondbacks 2: Lance Lynn checked Arizona on two runs over six innings in St. Louis' victory. Darwin Barney added three RBI for the Jays.

Chicago evened the score at 2 on a two-out, two-run double by Narvaez in the fourth. But, Smoak answered with a two-run blast in the next frame to give Toronto a 4-2 lead, which it would not surrender. It was Smoak's 31st home run, which trails only Aaron Judge (34) and Giancarlo Stanton (33) for most in the majors. More specifically, a unusual dust-up with White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson.

Trump Dictated His Son's Account Of Meeting With Russian Lawyer, Post Reports
A misleading public statement could be used as evidence of corrupt intent, Mr Sklansky told Reuters. After Trump Jr. revealed the email chain and details of the meeting, the story began to change.

Marcus Stroman picked up a win in the Toronto Blue Jays' 8-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, but his final inning became the story.

"You never see those coming with that big a deficit", said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. The White Sox placed OF Willy Garcia on the seven-day disabled list because of a concussion.

Garcia's head snapped back and he dropped the ball after being hit by Moncada's knee as both players remained on the field for several minutes.
