CHICAGO - The bad day at the office has become a tiresome cliche among Blue Jay pitchers.

On Friday it was Marcus Stroman and reliever Todd Redmond who had “bad days”.

On Sunday it was Drew Hutchison, the first inning in particular.

If you think the Jays are going from bad to worse on this road trip you’d be bang on as they have run into a bevy of soul-sucking pitching performances.

Sunday’s finale in the south side of Chicago was over in the first inning after the White Sox piled up six runs thanks to a grand slam by Conor Gillaspie plus a two-run blast by Jordan Danks.

It was the first grand slam of Connor’s career and the second home run of the season for the light-hitting Danks but both were jacked well into the seats on a grey afternoon that threatened rain and added an element of gloom.
