Tyler Flowers clubbed a solo home run to back seven scoreless innings from Mark Buehrle as the White Sox edged the Blue Jays, 2-1, on Tuesday evening at The Cell in interim manager Don Cooper's debut. Cooper, who was the team's pitching coach, is serving as the interim manager for the Southsiders' final two games of the season after Ozzie Guillen left for the Florida Marlins on Monday.

Buehrle struck out six and gave up just six hits to improve to 13-and-9 on the season. Chris Sale registered the final five outs to nail down his eighth save. A.J. Pierzynski knocked in Chicago's other run on an RBI single in the sixth inning. Mike McCoy's solo home run in the eighth frame accounted for Toronto's lone run of the game. Philip Humber will be on the bump this afternoon opposite Brandon Morrow in both team's season finale.
