CHICAGO (AP) — Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a drive that sliced through the misty air and carried to deep center. But it looked within range for a sprinting Leurys Garcia, who got a glove to the ball.
Then, the ball popped out of Garcia’s glove — and went over the wall.
“There is not an excuse,” Garcia said through a translator. “I saw the ball very well. I just couldn’t make the play.”
It was Guerrero’s third career home run, part of a Toronto offensive barrage that battered the White Sox 10-2 on Friday night.
“Any time he’s at the plate, you feel like he’s got a chance to hit a bomb, not just a home run,” said manager Charlie Montoyo.
