|Quintin's Slam Lifts White Sox Over Blue Jays
|TORONTO (AP) -- Carlos Quentin hit a grand slam and drove in six runs to help the Chicago White Sox beat Toronto 11-1 Wednesday night in front of the smallest crowd to attend the Blue Jays' stadium.
Only 10,610 were at Rogers Center to see the rout. With the Toronto Raptors playing across town for a spot in the NBA playoffs the city's attention was elsewhere _ even though the Maple Leafs missed the NHL playoffs.
Those who made the trip got to see Brandon Morrow (0-1) face five batters in the fifth inning without recording an out.
John Danks (1-0) allowed two hits and a run in seven innings and Tony Pena finished with two perfect ones.
Chicago's Andruw Jones hit his third homer of the year, making him 50th in big league history with 391.
