Toronto starter Marco Estrada stymied Boston hitters over seven innings holding them scoreless on just five hits and a pair of walks. He struck out eight.

Steven Wright (pictured) endured a shaky first inning allowing the first three Blue Jays to reach base, but only gave up one earned run. He allowed five hits and walked three while striking out five over 6.2 innings of work. He threw a career-high 118 pitches in what was the longest start by a Boston starting pitcher so far in 2016.

Noe Ramirez allowed a solo home run in the bottom of the 8th inning to John Donaldson.

Hanley Ramirez stayed hot with three hits including his first two-bagger of the year.
