TORONTO (AP) - Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer, Chris Sale pitched seven innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 on Saturday.

Chicago won back-to-back games for the first time since winning two straight over San Francisco on June 17 and 18. It had dropped 11 of 14 before the consecutive victories.

Held in check through the first six innings by rookie right-hander Marcus Stroman, the White Sox took the lead with a two-out rally in the seventh inning. Jose Abreu doubled, Adam Dunn walked and right-hander Dustin McGowan came on to face Viciedo, who drilled a second-deck home run on the reliever's first pitch.

McGowan (4-3) blew his second straight save opportunity.
