Marcus Stroman issued a career-high six walks and was ejected after allowing three runs over 4 2/3 frames Thursday against the Athletics in the Blue Jays' 8-4 extra-innings win.

Stroman boasts good control, but it has abandoned him lately with 11 walks in his last two starts and 17 free passes in his previous four outings. The righty said something to home plate umpire Will Little after his sixth walk Thursday, and Little took exception and immediately ejected Stroman, who then charged toward the ump and had to be held back. Catcher Russell Martin and manager John Gibbons also got the heave-ho. Stroman has generally pitched well lately aside from the bouts of wildness, so we’re not too worried. He’ll take on the White Sox on the road in his next start.

Sean Manaea yielded three runs over seven innings in a no-decision Thursday versus the Blue Jays.

The Jays got to the left-hander with the longball, as Josh Donaldson had a solo shot off Manaea in the first inning and Kendrys Morales hit a solo blast off of him in the fifth. He was able to limit the damage for the most part, though, in part because he had just his third zero-walk game of the season. Manaea struck out seven batters on the day and finishes July with four quality starts in five tries. He’ll get the Giants in his first outing of August.

Blake Treinen blew his first true save chance as an Athletic when he allowed a game-tying solo home run to Kendrys Morales on Thursday.

Treinen came on with two down in the eighth and got the third out on one pitch. He came back out for the ninth and Morales took him deep to lead off the frame. The reliever pitched around a walk to get out of the frame, but the damage had already been done. Treinen hadn't allowed an earned run as an Athletic prior to Thursday and is probably the favorite for saves even after blowing his first save chance, although manager Bob Melvin was noncommittal after the game.

Steve Pearce smashed a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning of Thursday's win over the Athletics.

Liam Hendriks walked the bases loaded to bring Pearce up with two outs. He ran the count full and then left a fastball up and over the plate, and Pearce swatted it just inside the left field foul pole. It was Pearce's lone hit in five trips to the dish. The Blue Jays swept the four-game series.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin was noncommittal when asked who would pitch the ninth inning going forward.

According to SB Nation's Chris Cotillo, the Astros and Twins have both been "linked" to Francisco Liriano.

Cotillo qualifies that Minnesota's interest in Liriano likely came before the team acquired Jaime Garcia, who could be dealt again before Monday's deadline. The Astros have cast a wide net in their search for a starting pitcher, pursuing a number of arms including Liriano, Jeff Samardzija and even Sonny Gray. Liriano has mostly been ineffective this year (6-5, 5.99 ERA) but he comes with a proven track record and could benefit from a change of scenery. Kansas City has shown the most interest in Liriano to this point.

Kendrys Morales clubbed a pair of solo home runs and scored three times in Thursday's victory over the Athletics.

Morales took Sean Manaea over the center field wall in the fifth inning and then led off the bottom of the ninth with a solo blast off of Blake Treinen to tie the game before Toronto won in the 10th. With three longballs over the last two days, Morales now has an even 20 home runs on the season. That puts him on pace for his second straight 30-homer campaign.

Josh Donaldson singled and smacked a solo homer in Thursday's win over the Athletics.

After the A's plated three runs in the top of the first inning, Donaldson got one back for the Jays in the bottom of the frame with a solo shot off of Sean Manaea. It was his first dinger in 15 games and just his second since mid-June, as Donaldson has struggled to hit for a ton of power in an injury-shortened season.
