Stroman responded to Eckersley via Twitter, first calling the 64-year-old Eckersley a "hypocrite", before throwing some added shade with a reminder of the 1992 American League Championship Series that the Blue Jays won in six games to eliminate Eckersley's Oakland Athletics and advance to the World Series.

In the midst of dominating the Red Sox in his most recent start, Stroman, as he often does, flashed some emotion on the mound.

Randal Grichuk homered for Toronto, which got six strong innings from Thornton but couldn't hold off the late rally by the Red Sox. It's just that we've been inconsistent and we need to be a lot better.

In the eighth, Jackie Bradley Jr. tripled with one out against David Phelps and scored the tying run on Devers' hit to right. Stroman certainly had his stuff on Sunday, striking out six over six shutout innings, allowing five hits and a walk on the day.

"We were not thinking about what happened yesterday", Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said. Cora said LHP Eduardo Rodríguez (8-4) and RHP Rick Porcello (5-6) will be the starters when the Red Sox play the New York Yankees next weekend in London. Chris Sale gets the ball, and he is 3-7 with a 3.49 ERA and 130 strikeouts this season.
