Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman made his first career major league start on Saturday against the Royals and was very impressive. The right-hander limited the opposition to one run on five hits with no walks and five strikeouts over six innings.
Stroman was more impressed by the Blue Jays’ offense, however. The Jays banged out 12 runs on 14 hits and four walks, bringing their runs per game average up to 5.04, second-best in the American League. Shockingly, they didn’t hit any home runs, only the second time the Jays went homerless in the last two weeks.
After the game, Stroman told the media just how impressive the Jays’ bats were:
Marcus Stroman on the #bluejays‘ potent offence: “It’s like playing a video game with a cheat team.”
