The Toronto Blue Jays are trying to wrap up the American League East and have been heading in that direction. The Blue Jays took another step in that direction with Friday’s win which was victory number three in a row. Starter Marcus Stroman allowed the lone run on six hits through seven innings to up his record to 2-0. The Jays logged nine hits and walked twice with Justin Smoak driving in two runs and scoring while Ryan Goins scored and drove in a run. Veteran knuckleballer RA Dickey toes the rubber versus the visiting Red Sox on Saturday. Dickey has thrown the ball well over his last three with a 1-1 record with a 2.76 ERA.
