Viciedo, Sierra exit with injuries; Alexei hit by pitch

CHICAGO -- Dayan Viciedo exited in the fifth inning of the White Sox 11-5 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday night because of dizziness. He was replaced by Moises Sierra after drawing a walk, only to have Sierra leave after the eighth inning with a back issue. Leury Garcia took over in right field in the ninth.

"I don't know what it was with right field, but [Viciedo] felt dizzy and just felt at that point just to get him out. And Moises came in later and said there's something with his back," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "So just put Leury in. Luckily we have Leury to kind of play all over the place."

Alexei Ramirez was hit in the left hand by a pitch from Toronto starter Marcus Stroman in the first inning. But after being in considerable pain, Ramirez stayed in the game and finished with two hits and three RBIs.

"He's very surprisingly durable and the kid just loves playing," said White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn of Ramirez, who has played in 121 of 122 games this season and has logged 1,056 2/3 innings.
