Marcus Stroman surrendered two runs in four innings and took a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.
Both runs came in his final inning -- he served up a solo homer to Aaron Judge, then allowed an RBI single to Starlin Castro. The out-of-contention Blue Jays didn't see the need to push Stroman too far in his final outing of the season. He emerged as a legitimate top-of-the-rotation starting pitcher this year, registering a fine 3.09 ERA along with his 13-9 record in 33 starts. He garnered 164 strikeouts against 62 walks in 201 innings. Sep 30 - 4:17 PM
