Monday, June 24, 2019 – Page B10

BOSTON -- Lourdes Gurriel Jr. came strolling out of Toronto's clubhouse to an interview area wearing a wrestling-belt lookalike with a big smile on his face.

The Blue Jays give one to their position player of the game and another to their pitcher to wear.

It's easy to figure out who had the other one when they made their way out of town.

Marcus Stroman pitched six shutout innings, Gurriel Jr. had three hits and threw out a runner at the plate, and the Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 6-1 on Sunday.

"We do one for a pitcher and another for a hitter," said Stroman, wearing his while chatting with Blue Jays fans before he walked to the team bus.

Stroman showed his own joy earlier when he fanned Eduardo Nunez, the final batter he faced.

"To limit that team to no runs over six is huge," Stroman said.

"It's hard to do. I was really locked in all game. That's just me showing emotion, passion for the game."

Danny Jansen hit a two-run single and Eric Sogard a solo homer for the Blue Jays, who won the final two games of the three-game series. Rowdy Tellez added two hits and scored twice.

The Red Sox had won eight of nine after taking the series opener Friday on Christian Vazquez's two-run, walk-off homer.

Stroman (5-9) held the Red Sox to five singles - three coming consecutively in the second inning when Gurriel made his throw from left field - and struck out six while walking one. It's the fifth time in his past eight starts that he's held an opponent to no more than one earned run.

"That was the best part definitely of the day over the hitting," Gurriel said through a translator.

"It was really emotional. I was so happy to get that guy at home plate." Rick Porcello (5-7) gave up five runs on eight hits over six innings.

The Blue Jays scored single runs in the second and third before adding three more in the sixth for a 5-0 lead.

"Put ourselves in a tough hole, especially when Stroman was throwing the ball so well and runs and hits were hard to come by," Porcello said of the sixth.

Unlike the first two games of the series when each team blew a big lead late, Stroman and three relievers made this one stand.

On Friday, the Red Sox trailed 5-1 in the seventh. Toronto fell behind 6-0 and trailed 6-1 in the seventh Saturday before coming back against Boston's beleaguered bullpen.

"We stole one on Friday, we had a lead on Saturday and they stole the game, and today we didn't show up," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. "It's disappointing."

With Toronto leading 2-0, Porcello balked home a run before Jansen lined his bases-loaded single to left-centre.

Gurriel cut down Brock Holt trying to score from second easily on Jackie Bradley Jr.'s single with two on and one out.

Brandon Drury's broken bat RBI single made it 1-0, and Cavan Biggio had a run-scoring double.
