TORONTO - After a taste of Aaron Sanchez last night the Boston Red Sox got a full dose of Marcus Stroman Thursday afternoon.

The young right-handers who are tabbed to be future stars with the Jays put on a terrific performance in back to back games.

Sanchez made his big-league debut Wednesday and supplied two shutout innings while in Thursday's matinee, Stroman no-hit the Red Sox through six innings and blanked them on one hit over seven in pitching the Jays to an 8-0 victory.

Stroman, 6-2, faced just one batter over the minimum and the lone hit he allowed was a bloop single to centre by Shane Victorino on an 0-2 count.

Overall, Stroman walked two while striking out seven.

Along with the powerful outing by Stroman, the Jays got an unexpected boost as Juan Francisco awoke from his batting coma to launch a triple in the second, a two-run homer in the third and two-run single in the fifth.
