Corey Patterson hit a game-ending homer in the 14th inning, Jose Bautista connected for his major league-leading 20th home run and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Chicago White Sox 9-8 on Saturday.

Patterson, who tied a career high with five hits, led off the 14th with a drive to right off Gavin Floyd (5-5) for his third of the season. It was the fourth game-winning homer of his career.

Floyd started and went seven innings for Chicago in Wednesday's loss at Texas. He came out of the bullpen in the 13th, his first relief appearance since Aug. 24, 2007, against Boston.

Blue Jays left-hander Luis Perez (1-0) pitched 3 2-3 shutout innings for his first career win. The Blue Jays won back-to-back games for the first time since a season-high six-game winning streak from May 10-16.
