Bautista hits 200th homer as a Blue Jay in Toronto’s 8-0 win over Chicago Cubs – Toronto

Jose Bautista hit a three-run homer and Marcus Stroman threw a three-hit shutout as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Chicago Cubs 8-0 on Monday night at the Rogers Centre.

Bautista’s no-doubt blast in the fifth inning was his 32nd homer of the season and 200th as a Blue Jay. It provided more than enough run support for Stroman, who had eight strikeouts and didn’t walk a batter.

The rookie right-hander gave up a single to Jorge Soler in the second inning and retired 19 straight before allowing a single to Mike Olt in the eighth. Stroman (10-5) threw 66 of his 93 pitches for strikes in the first complete-game victory of his career.

Toronto, which started the day five games out of a wild-card spot, improved to 74-69 by taking the opener of the three-game interleague series. Jacob Turner (5-9) shouldered the loss for Chicago (64-80), losers of four straight.

Stroman was given a scare after throwing his second pitch of the night. Leadoff man Chris Coghlan lashed a fastball back to the mound that just missed Stroman’s head.

The ball deflected off his glove and bounced to shortstop Jose Reyes, who made the throw to first in time. Stroman came up smiling after dusting himself off and went on to retire the side in order.
