CHICAGO -- Now that was what White Sox owner Jerry Reindorf had in mind all along.

Shortly after being admonished by Reinsdorf in a pregame meeting for what he perceived as a season-long lack of effort, the Sox went out and crushed Toronto 8-0 Wednesday at Comiskey Park.

Jon Garland threw the first complete game and shutout of his career to win for the first time in eight starts since July 14, and Magglio Ordoñez reached the 30-home run mark for the fourth straight season on a three-run shot in the third.

Ordoñez added a two-run blast in the fifth and joined Frank Thomas as the only Sox players to hit 30 homers and drive in 100 runs in four consecutive seasons. Thomas did it five years in a row, from 1993-97.

Since missing out on his first All-Star Game since 1998, Ordonez has hit .362 with 16 homers and 40 RBIs.

Garland (9-10) had only gone as many as eight innings once in the first 55 starts of his career, but he was never in trouble against the Blue Jays. He didn't allow a runner to reach third base until the sixth inning and gave up only one extra-base hit, a double to Eric Hinske leading off the sixth.

In his previous two starts, Garland had allowed eight earned runs in eight innings and only struck out four while walking six. His nine strikeouts on Wednesday were a career-high, but perhaps more impressive was his one walk -- he's been averaging more than four walks per nine innings.

Carlos Lee began the scoring with a second-inning solo homer -- his 22nd of the season -- off Toronto starter Steve Parris, who also gave up both homers to Ordoñez. Jeff Liefer's two-run single in the seventh put the Sox ahead 8-0.
