Nike Free 5.0 Dames Zwart . Jesse Crain (2-1) received the win in relief of Philip Humber by recording the final out of the eighth inning. Humber allowed one run on six hits and a walk in 7 2/3 innings to give Chicago its fourth win in six games. Marc Rzepczynski (2-1) took the loss when he allowed two runs -- both unearned -- on two hits in an inning of work. Brandon Morrow started the game and allowed one run on four hits and two walks through seven innings. Yunel Escobar homered for the Jays, who have lost three straight. I really just tried to power the ball down in the zone, Morrow said. I felt like I was throwing straight downhill all game. I had some better movement on my fastball and just kept it down. When I was missing, I was missing down and thats a better spot for me. Alex Rios led off the ninth with a ground ball to third baseman John McDonald, whose throwing error allowed Rios to reach second. Rzepczynskis wild pitch moved him to third with one out. Rzepczynski then struck out Omar Vizquel before hitting Gordon Beckham with a pitch to put runners on the corners. Beckham stole second and both Rios and Beckham crossed the plate on an infield single by Pierre. Pierre hit a hard grounder to first that pulled Juan Rivera away from the bag. As Rzepczynski ran to cover first, Riveras throw bounced away from the pitcher and the speedy Pierre reached first safely. The error allowed Beckham to score. When Juan is swinging the bat good it seems like we have more life on the bench, White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. Sergio Santos pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his eighth save of the year. A.J. Pierzynski singled with one out in the fifth for Chicagos first hit and was followed by a base hit by Vizquel. Pierre knocked in Pierzynski with a single, after a Beckham fly out, to give the White Sox a one-run lead. Chicago then loaded the bases after Alexei Ramirez worked a walk, but Carlos Quentin followed with a ground out to second that ended the inning and kept the score 1-0. Escobar knotted the game up when he led off the sixth inning with a shot into the left-center field bleachers. Besides Escobars home run, Toronto never had a player touch third base. They did have runners on second in the fourth, seventh and eighth innings but could not bring anyone home. Altogether they went 0-for-4 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. GAME NOTES:Jose Bautista has now reached base safely in 39 of his 42 games this year...Pierre extended his hit streak to 11 games...Rivera extended his hit streak to eight games...Chicago went 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position and left nine men on base.

Bouchard, who grabbed the tennis worlds attention at last months Grand Slam, will be joined in the best-of-five series by Gabriela Dabrowski of Ottawa, Sharon Fichman of Toronto and Aleksandra Wozniak, of Blainville, Que.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Masahiro Tanaka started Jose Reyes with a 92 mph fastball, his first major league pitch since July 8. He threw 70 pitches in all and didnt feel any pain in the right elbow that had sidelined him for 2 1/2 months. "Obviously, Im very relieved," Tanaka said through a translator after leading the Yankees over the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2 Sunday before a boisterous sellout crowd of 48,144 on a grey, overcast afternoon. Tanaka was only part of the attraction: It was Derek Jeters last weekend game at Yankee Stadium. The retiring Yankees captain received standing ovations during every at-bat, went 2 for 4 and finished his next-to-last home series 8 for 15 with two doubles, a home run and three RBIs. Jeter became the first Yankee with four straight mulithit games at age 40, and he saluted the crowd after sharing postgame handshakes and high-fives with teammates. "Hopefully he keeps getting two hits and decides he wants to play again next year," said Brett Gardner, who put the Yankees ahead 2-1 in the fifth with the Yankees 15,000th home run since the franchise started play in New York in 1903. While Jeter is going, Tanaka is coming back. He started sensationally at 11-1 with a 1.99 ERA in his first 14 appearances. But he slumped in his next four and hadnt pitched since scans discovered a slight tear in the ulnar collateral ligament of his right elbow. Rather than opt for Tommy John surgery, which would have sidelined him for about a year, Tanaka and the Yankees chose a rehabilitation strengthening protocol. Tanaka (13-4) responded by allowing one run and five hits in 5 1-3 innings with four strikeouts, no walks and a hit batter. He had an exceptional curveball, and his splitter was dipping as sharply as it did during the first half of the season. "I dont exactly remember when, but gradually as the game went on I guess I stopped thinking about it," he said of his elbow. Tanaka gave up a run in first when Reyes singled to right centre, took third on Jose Bautistas ground single to right through the shifted infield and came home on Edwin Encarnacions double-play grounder. After Munenori Kawasaki had a one-out double in the second, Tanaka retired 11 of his next 12 batters. "The way he pitched today, its a great sign,"t; said catcher Brian McCann, who hit home runs 14,999 and 15,001, driving in three runs. Adidas Zx Flux Rood. Tanaka went to a three-ball count just once. He left with two on and tipped his cap to fans as he walked to the dugout. "Pretty darn good," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Its extremely encouraging and now well try to get him to start again on Saturday." But will the ligament hold up? "Are we going to know fully until five years down the road? Probably not," pitching coach Larry Rothschild said. "Its possible that he can get through this for quite a while. Its possible that it comes up and bites him, and thats it. Were hopeful thats its the earlier scenario and that hes going to be fine and have a nice, long career with no problems." New York is 4 1/2 games out for the ALs second wild card with seven games to play, yet still drew its second straight sellout as Jeters admirers turned out. Jeters fifth-inning single chased Drew Hutchison (10-13), and when Jeter batted in the seventh, most fans held up phones and cameras to take photographs and video. He responded with a run-scoring double down the left-field line against Todd Redmond for a 3-1 lead, and the crowd erupted with near-post-season intensity. The usual "De-rek Je-ter!" chants turned into "Thank You De-rek!" and he stole third base. Jeter then jogged home when McCann hit his second home run of the game to make it 5-1. On Wednesday, Jeter had broken an 0-for-28 slide on the last night of a road trip. "Im sure," Girardi said, "theres a little bit of extra adrenaline going right now." THE FINAL DAYS: Girardi anticipates Jeter will play in all four games against Baltimore. Gates open at 4 p.m. before the night games so fans can watch Jeter take batting practice. LAST OUT: David Robertson pitched a hitless ninth for his 38th save in 42 chances. BUNCHING: McCann has 11 multihomer games, including two this season.
