TORONTO (AP) — Josh Donaldson and Aledmys Diaz each hit a two-run homer, and the Toronto Blue Jays routed the Chicago White Sox 14-5 on Tuesday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

Donaldson went 2 for 4 with three RBIs. Diaz had three hits before leaving after six innings because of back spasms.

Donaldson and Diaz also went deep in Monday’s night’s 4-2 victory over Chicago. The Blue Jays have hit at least one home run in each of their first six games.

Avisail Garcia, Tim Anderson and Yolmer Sanchez hit solo home runs for the White Sox. Chicago has 12 home runs over its first four games.

According to Statcast, Garcia’s one-out drive off J.A. Happ in the fifth travelled 481 feet, making it the longest home run in the majors this season and the longest by a White Sox player since Statcast was introduced in 2015. Garcia’s exit velocity of 116.7 mph was also a White Sox record.

His towering shot hit off the facing of the fourth deck in left center, just below the window of a stadium hotel room.

Anderson went 3 for 4, finishing a triple shy of the cycle. He stole two bases and scored three runs.

Happ (1-1) struck out nine in 5 1/3 innings, but was charged with four runs and seven hits.

Nicky Delmonico’s RBI single gave Chicago a 1-0 lead in the second, but Toronto answered with three in the third. Luke Maile hit a leadoff double and scored on Diaz’s homer. Justin Smoak drew a two-out walk and later scored on an error by Anderson at shortstop.

Anderson homered to begin the fourth, making it 3-2, but the Blue Jays added three more in the bottom half. Diaz hit an RBI double and Donaldson homered off Miguel Gonzalez (0-1).

Chicago’s Adam Engel hit a run-scoring grounder off Danny Barnes in the sixth and Sanchez connected off Tyler Clippard in the eighth.

Toronto put the game away with a seven-run, 11-batter eighth, beating up a trio of relievers. Four of Toronto’s five hits in the inning were doubles.
