Chicago White Sox's Dayan Viciedo (24)

White Sox take down Jays

Jose Abreu had three singles and three RBIs to increase his major league-leading total to 89, and the Chicago White Sox had 17 hits in an 11-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night

CHICAGO — Jose Abreu had three singles and three RBIs to increase his major league-leading total to 89, and the Chicago White Sox had 17 hits in an 11-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.

Adam Dunn, who also had three hits, and Dayan Viciedo each drove in two runs. Seven White Sox starters had at least two hits and only one, Tyler Flowers, went hitless as Chicago had 14 singles and three doubles.

Melky Cabrera hit a two-run homer for the Blue Jays, who have lost four straight and 10 of 13 to drop four games behind Seattle in the AL wild-card race.

Hector Noesi (7-8) settled down after allowing four runs in the first two innings and pitched five-plus innings for his fourth win in five decisions. Javy Guerra, Maikel Cleto and Daniel Webb allowed one hit over the final four innings.

Marcus Stroman (7-4) gave up five runs, five hits and hit a batter while getting only two outs in his shortest outing since joining the Blue Jays’ rotation on May 31.

Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion was hitless as the DH after being activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game. Ten of the first 15 White Sox hitters reached base as Chicago scored five runs in the first inning and added one in the second. Viciedo singled twice in the span and drove in two runs.

The Blue Jays scored a run in the first and three in the second against Noesi, including Cabrera’s two-run shot, to make it 6-4 after two innings. The White Sox added five runs the fifth to put it away. They opened the inning with six straight singles — a season high for consecutive hits — a walk and wild pitch against Todd Redmond, Toronto’s second reliever.
