Giles was charged with five runs in his first home appearance with Toronto since being acquired from Houston in a deal that sent back Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna.

  Richard Griffin: These Blue Jays are proving to be unarmed for battle The Blue Jays had been struggling before the July 31 trade deadline but, despite dealing away five major-league pitchers in a week, they at least had some hope of avoiding a sweep in Oakland with their best starter, Marcus Stroman, on the mound. The A’s, however, kicked Stroman around the Coliseum for 11 hits and seven runs in five-plus innings, pounding Toronto 8-3 and winning all seven games against the Jays this season.

Ryan Tepera came on and loaded the bases for Moreland, who hit an RBI fielder's choice. Martinez followed with a drive off the left field foul pole.

Tepera was ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Ed Hickox as he walked off at the end of the inning.

Devon Travis and Kevin Pillar each hit a two-run home run for the Blue Jays. Toronto has lost 11 of 14 games against the AL East-leading Red Sox, owners of the best record in baseball.

Red Sox left-hander Drew Pomeranz allowed two runs and four hits in 4 2/3 innings, matching a season worst with five walks.

The retractable roof at Rogers Centre was open when the game began but started to swing closed in the middle of the fifth. In the eighth, a steady stream of water could be seen leaking into the seats in right field.
