#CBC: “Marcus Stroman sharp as Blue Jays high Braves ” #Toronto #Montreal #Calgary #Ottawa #Canada
Toronto’s batters did their half in a decisive eighth inning.
Russell Martin’s sharp single in Toronto’s five-run eighth drove within the go-ahead run, Stroman pitched seven robust innings, and the Blue Jays beat Atlanta 6-2 on Tuesday evening to knock the Braves out of first place.
Stroman (2-6) annoyed the Braves by mixing his cutter and slider and recording 14 of his 21 outs on the bottom.
“When I’m pairing the cutter and slider it makes it pretty hard on the hitters,” Stroman stated.
Stroman stated he has felt robust since coming back from the disabled record on June 23. The Blue Jays have gained three of his 4 begins since he missed six weeks with proper shoulder fatigue.
‘It was an excellent effort’
“It was an outstanding effort,” Blue Jays supervisor John Gibbons stated. “It doesn’t surprise me. I think he has rounded back into shape the way we’ve seen him so many times.”
Stroman gave up one run and 6 hits with two walks in seven innings.
The Braves, who’ve misplaced six of their final seven, fell to second within the NL East after starting the day tied with Philadelphia for the lead. The Phillies beat the Mets 7-3. Atlanta held at the least a share of first since May 30.
Toronto was restricted to 3 hits via seven innings by Teheran and Jesse Biddle, and the sport was tied 1-1. The Blue Jays broke out with 5 hits off A.J. Minter (3-2) and Shane Carle within the eighth.
Aledmys Diaz doubled in two runs earlier than scoring on a double by Devon Travis. Kevin Pillar had a run-scoring single within the massive inning, which opened with a fielding error by Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson on Yangervis Solarte’s grounder.
Teheran stranded two baserunners in every of the primary two innings earlier than giving up Justin Smoak’s 13th homer with one out within the third.
Toronto protected the 1-Zero lead till the sixth. Kurt Suzuki’s single off Stroman (2-6) drove in Ozzie Albies, who opened the inning with a bunt single.
Teheran allowed one run and three hits with three walks in 6 2/Three innings.
