In this one, the Blue Jays reached a season high in runs and hits (17).

It was a sight to behold for Stroman, who had received nary a run of support in half of his previous 14 starts. His total backing was 2.87 runs per nine innings, lowest in the big leagues.

"I've been talking about it all year, kind of saying our guys were going to turn it around at some point," the right-hander said. "It's a long year and we're starting to swing the bats better. A lot of young guys are beginning to get settled in."

Stroman (4-8) allowed two runs, one earned, over six innings and left with a seven-run lead.

"I think we can do pretty special things with this lineup," he insisted. "Some of these young guys can really hit, and I think they are only going to get better."
