Angels edge Blue Jays, 2-1

That lead for the Canadian team, however, was short lived.

"All that stuff happens, believe it or not, as you're running", said Coghlan to ESPN. "I didn't really get an explanation as to why I couldn't or shouldn't do it, so that was the only thing wrong".

Stroman still isn't sure exactly what he did wrong in De Jesus' eyes, since he didn't get an explanation — and he used the same abbreviated delivery later in the game without getting called. Weird to the point where one could see something only once no matter how long they've followed the game.

Amusing how that works.

See more stats on the starting pitchers, and a preview of both teams here. Jose Martinez tied the game with his first homer, a two run shot to right in the 7th, making it a 4-4 game.

This upcoming series is an opportunity for the Jays to continue this production against a Cardinals rotation that, for the first time in a while, is looking rather vulnerable.

Jays manager John Gibbons had a little fun with that part of the story as well. "It was something he was conscious of in spring training".

Setting up in front of Davis, Hector Rondon and Carl Edwards Jr. have combined to allow one run and three hits in 15.1 innings.

Luckily, we didn't have to worry about anybody being hoisted by their own petard, as Norris got his second career save, punctuated by a game-ending, gorgeous double play from the Simmons-Espinosa connection.

While Martinez may have made an error of omission based on inexperience at the position - he learned it on the fly in spring training to help earn his first Opening Day roster spot - it's hard to argue that Martinez hasn't earned more at-bats.

But in Pillar's mind there is an important distinction: Discipline doesn't mean laying off.

"After I had thrown it, my momentum kind of took me down", Piscotty said.

This past Friday's marathon win over the Angels was rather illustrative of that. Addison Russell doubled in the second off Cole (1-3) and scored when second baseman Alen Hanson airmailed first base on a Jason Heyward grounder, the Pirates' major league-high 20th error this season.

You could tell how excited Stroman was about it, as when he went back into the dugout he still had his helmet on, along with a big smile on his face.

The new approach has been a nice fit at the top of the order, an opportunity Pillar relishes.

"In the seventh inning and (Stroman) had two outs and I think he was at 70-something pitches", Travis said.

"I don't think it's going to be something that I'm anxious about going forward", Stroman said.

"For me they are an fantastic team with an unbelievable coach in Mauricio Pochettino", he told the London Evening Standard . Well, looking at both sides on paper and throughout the season, there will certainly be no shortage of quality.
