Alek Manoah pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five during Toronto's win over Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
Manoah managed to limit the Rays to two runs, which was fortunate for the Blue Jay's offence as they decided to come alive in the seventh inning and come away with the victory. All the damage done by the Rays was via a Ji-Man Choi solo home run in the third inning and a Jonathan Aranda seventh inning solo blast. Manoah continued his excellent streak of holding his opponents to two-run or less in five straight starts and has cemented himself as the Blue Jay's ace this season. Overall he is 14-7 with a 2.43 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 163 strikeouts over 28 starts. He'll next take the mound in a matchup against the Orioles on Sunday.
