Blue Jays top White Sox, 6-3

CHICAGO -- The Blue Jays scored three runs in the seventh off Matt Lindstrom to snap a 3-3 tie. Mark Buehrle shut out the Sox through five before leaving with a 3-1 lead with one out in the sixth. Paul Konerko's RBI single tied it, and all three runs were charged to Buehrle, but the Blue Jays still came up with the 6-3 win against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

At the plate: Avisail Garcia was 2-for-4 in his return from a shoulder injury. Garcia doubled in his first at-bat in the second and stroked an RBI single to the wall in right field in the sixth that nearly missed being a three-run homer.

On the mound: John Danks gave up three runs on eight hits over six innings and got a no-decision.

In the field: Alexei Ramirez went to his left to make a leaping catch to rob Jose Bautista of a hit in the third.

The quote: Ventura on Garcia's comeback: "It's just a nice surprise to have him back and it's a testament to him and how hard he has worked and there is probably some luck in there of him being able to heal the way he did."

The number: 5.95: Buehrle's ERA over his last eight starts.

Up next: Jays (RH Drew Hutchinson, 8-10, 4.60 ERA) at White Sox (RH Scott Carroll, 4-7, 4.81), 1:10 p.m. Sunday, WGN-9.
