Marco Estrada has been pitching extremely well of late with a near no-hitter against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday afternoon.
The Blue Jays starter retired 19 straight batters at one point, but lost his no-hit bid in the 8th inning after giving up a homerun to Chris Young, but the Jays still went on to win to 5-4.
In his previous start versus New York Estrada pitched eight innings of shutout baseball as the Jays went on to beat the Yankees 5-2.
Marco Estrada is now sporting a record of four wins and two losses with an earned run average of 2.41. Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnicon managed to provide support as they both hit their 12th homerun of the season.
In 2015, Estrada flirted with a perfect game into the 8th inning on June 24th versus the Tampa Rays.
The Jays are currently sitting in third place in the American League East and are two-and-a-half games back of Boston for first place.
Toronto will now travel to Detroit to play three games against the Tigers starting on Monday.
