With right-hander Marcus (Stroh) Stroman winning his second straight start on Friday, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons praised the players called up from triple-A Buffalo this season.

"We got a bunch of them out there and, shoot, they've all done a great job," Gibbons said. "We stripped them (Buffalo) pretty good and they're still playing good down there. But, yeah, you name it. (Erik) Kratz, (Kevin) Pillar, (Anthony) Gose, (Steve) Tolleson, (Chad) Jenkins has been up, (Rob) Rasmussen, Stroh, (Juan) Francisco. It's a lot of guys."
