Aaron Hill, Corey Patterson and Edwin Encarnacion each homered off a winless John Danks, as the Toronto Blue Jays used a season-high 18 hits to crush the Chicago White Sox, 13-4, in the finale of a four-game series.

Hill hit his first-career grand slam for the Blue Jays, who won the final three games of this set. Patterson went 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored, while Encarnacion finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored.

Toronto starter Ricky Romero (5-4) gave up two runs on six hits over seven innings to pick up the win.

Carlos Quentin and Ramon Castro both hit homers for the White Sox, who have lost four of five.

Danks (0-8) continued his struggles on the mound, allowing a season-high nine runs on nine hits over four frames to remain winless. Danks, who set a career- high in wins (15) last season, is the first White Sox starter to open a season 0-8 since Eddie Smith in 1942 (0-10).
