The night ended badly for the Toronto Blue Jays who suffered a 7-6 loss to the Chicago White Sox in 12e sleeve, Tuesday.
It’s not just the defeat that is painful for Charlie Montoyo’s squad as George Springer was forced out of the game with discomfort in his right elbow.
The Blue Jays had the chance three times to sign the victory, but each time the succession was unable to close the books. With a 4-2 lead in the ninth inning, Jordan Romano shattered that lead by allowing two runs.
Bradley Zimmer saved the day with a dive past AJ Pollock to make the third out and prevent Luis Robert from scoring the winning run moments later.
The Jays once again led by one point in 10e inning, but the White Sox tied the game and had all the bases occupied with just one out. Tim Anderson however compromised in a double game orchestrated by Bo Bichette to prolong the meeting.
Raimel Tapia again gave Toronto the game control in the next round, but Chicago fought back to send the showdown in 12e some.
Harrison managed after two outs to push Jose Abreu to the plate to give his team the victory.
