Corey Patterson belted a solo home run in the bottom of the 14th inning as the Toronto Blue Jays outslugged the visiting Chicago White Sox 9-8 Saturday afternoon.

Patterson capped his first five-hit game since July 22, 2006 by depositing a Gavin Floyd offering over the right-field wall for his third home run of the season. Floyd (5-5) was making his first relief appearance since 2007 and was pitching on just two days rest after going seven innings in a start Wednesday against the Texas Rangers.

Jose Bautista provided the other highlight for Toronto with a first-inning three-run homer that gave him the franchise record for the fewest games needed to hit 20 homers. He accomplished the feat in just 44 games, nine fewer than George Bell during his MVP season in 1987. Bautista finished 3-for-4 with a pair of walks.

Luis Perez (1-0) earned his first major-league victory with 3 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.

Brent Lillibridge had a two-run homer and a triple in defeat for the White Sox, who sent the game to extra innings on an RBI double by Paul Konerko with two outs in the ninth inning.

Neither starting pitcher was effective. Toronto righthander Carlos Villanueva allowed six runs on eight hits over five innings, while Edwin Jackson surrendered six runs on nine hits in his 6 2/3 innings of work.
