Tyler Flowers gave the Sox a 1-0 lead in the second with a solo home run off Jays Starter Henderson Alvarez.

AJ Pierzynski made it 2-0 Chicago in the sixth with an RBI single.

Toronto's lone run came on a Mike McCoy solo shot off sox reliever Jesse Crain in the eighth.

Buehrle allowed six hits and struck out six as he finishes his season at 13-9.
