BOSTON — Marcus Stroman probably knew it was his last batter, his last inning at least. His pitch count was beyond 100 on a hot afternoon at Fenway Park, and over his left shoulder the Toronto Blue Jays bullpen was busy with two relievers throwing. But he also knew Toronto’s relief corps was stretched thin and he had to give his team some innings. If he could just get one more out, carry his team through six, it could make a world of difference.
At the plate, Eduardo Nunez. Not a masher but always a tough plate appearance — a scrappy hitter whose 84 per cent contact rate is well above league average.
