Afterwards, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reported that Gurriel Jr. had been diagnosed with a left knee contusion and left ankle sprain. Initial X-rays of the knee and ankle were negative for a fracture. We'll see if Gurriel can get closer to there or not. I'm sure it'll tighten up on him and swell up on him. "It's unfortunate. He's up there (with the hitting streak) with some of the big boys". With a pair of singles in the Jays' clash with the Chicago White Sox, Gurriel recorded his 10th-straight multi-hit game. Luke Maile added an RBI double in the ninth.
To put this into perspective, as per Sportnet's Zwelling, Gurriel Jr.is now one of only seven players in Major League Baseball history to have 11 consecutive multi-hit games.
"He hit one of my best sliders there in the eighth to score a run", White Sox starter Carlos Rodon said. The Blue Jays are 1-4 in their last five overall, 2-5 in their last seven on the road, 4-11 in their last 15 against the American League West, 1-4 in their last five against winning opponents, 3-7 in Estrada's last 10 starts, and 1-7 in his last eight starts against winning opponents. That's when Jaime Garcia and Ryan Tepera combined to allow six runs and squander the lead in a 9-5 setback against the White Sox.
Since July 11, when his streak began, Gurriel is hitting.500/.519/.740 with three home runs and seven RBI in 50 at-bats. Matt Davidson had two hits for Chicago. He had previously delivered four quality starts in the span of five appearances, missing out on fifth straight by one inning (three earned runs allowed in 5.0 innings at Houston on June 27).
Jace Fry (0-2) allowed three runs without recording an out.
