  • Stroman’s 3-hitter leads Blue Jays over Cubs Sep 8, 2014 9:08 PM
    Marcus Stroman pitched a three-hitter for his first complete game, in 18 career major league starts, and Jose Bautista hit a three-run homer for the Toronto Blue Jays in an 8-0 win over the Cubs on Monday night. Stroman (10-5) struck out eight and walked none, improving to 3-0 with a 1.19 ERA in his past three starts. Chicago was shut out for the 15th time this season, second in the NL behind San Diego’s 18. Bautista hit his 200th homer for Toronto, a two-out drive in the fifth off Jacob Turner (5-9) that was his eighth home run in 12 games. Bautista is fifth in home runs among Blue Jays, trailing Carlos Delgado (336), Vernon Wells (223), Joe Carter (203) and George Bell (202). Stroman was nearly hit in the face when Chris Coghlan hit a line drive back up the middle leading off the game. The ball struck Stroman’s glove and ricocheted to shortstop Jose Reyes, who threw to first for the out. Stroman fell on his back as he bent out of the way, but was unhurt. Catcher Dioner Navarro got a laugh from the crowd when he came out to wipe the dirt off his teammate’s back. Jorge Soler singled starting the second and was erased on Welington Castillo’s double-play grounder. Stroman then retired 19 straight batters before Mike Olt’s two-out single in the eighth. Turner (5-9) allowed five runs — four earned — and seven hits in six innings. The Cubs played on artificial turf for the first time since June 2008, when they had consecutive series at Toronto and Tampa Bay. Toronto has hit at least one home run in 12 consecutive games, its longest streak since a 12-game run from Aug. 6 to 18, 2011. Adam Lind reached on second baseman Logan Watkins’s error beginning the second and scored on Danny Valencia’s RBI single. Navarro’s sacrifice fly doubled the lead in the fourth. TRAINER’S ROOM Cubs: 1B Anthony Rizzo (back) took grounders and hit in the batting cage. Manager Rick Renteria said Rizzo is feeling better but declined to predict a return date. “I’ll reserve my optimism,” Renteria said. “We’re going to take it slow and easy.” Blue Jays: OF Melky Cabrera (broken finger) and RHP Chad Jenkins (broken hand) had surgery Monday. Cabrera was injured Friday on a pickoff play at Boston, and Jenkins got hurt Thursday as he tried to field a ball during batting practice. UP NEXT Cubs RHP Jake Arrieta (8-5) faces Blue Jays LHP Mark Buehrle (11-9) on Tuesday. Arrieta is 1-2 with a 7.31 ERA in three career starts at Toronto. Buehrle pitched eight scoreless innings against Tampa Bay last Thursday, his longest outing since June 29.
