Blue Jays bash White Sox 14-0

The Blue Jays improved to a Major League Baseball best 13-5 after destroying the Chicago White Sox at U.S Cellular Field 14-0. Toronto set new season highs in runs (14) and hits (21) Seven Blue Birds finished with multi-hit games, with Vernon Wells falling a triple short of the cyle, Adam Lind securing a career high 3 doubles, Rod Barajas driving in a pair to go along with 3 hits, and rookie Travis Snider had 3 base raps and an RBI.

Toronto now leads the American League in batting average, runs scored, hits, RBI, and is 2nd in home runs, behind the Texas Rangers.

The hitting is becoming contagious, and the offense is getting better now that the much maligned (by me) Alex Rios on a 6 game hitting streak and Vernon Wells waking up from a slow start to the season. Both Rios and Wells homered in the series finale against the Rangers, and they accounted for 4 hits and 3 RBI in this one.

Just keep riding the wave.
