Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) -
Marcus Stroman carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning and Juan Francisco ended a double shy of the cycle, as Toronto downed Boston, 8-0, Thursday afternoon at Rogers Centre.
Stroman (6-2) allowed just one hit, walked two and struck out seven over seven scoreless innings for the Blue Jays, who won the final three games of this four-game set. The right-handed rookie has won consecutive starts and improved to 3-0 over his last six trips to the mound.
Francisco went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and drove in four runs for Toronto, which has won five of six overall. The double he couldn't find, was hit three times by Melky Cabrera, who ended 3-for-4 with two RBI.
