In yesterday's MLB action, AL East tensions were high as Toronto shut out Boston 8-0 at home for their third win of the week. It looked as if Toronto rookie pitcher Marcus Stroman was on his way to a no-hitter, but Boston's Shane Victorino put an end to the youngster's dreams in the seventh inning. Stroman allowed just one hit and struck out 7 batters, allowing Toronto to control the momentum and build a decisive lead. Juan Francisco led the way on offense with a homer and four RBIs, while Melky Cabera drove in another pair of the Blue Jays' 8 runs. Next up, the Blue Jays will close out the week with a three game series against the Yankees before heading to Boston for a three game road stretch against the Red Sox.

Around the league, it was all about the mound as pitchers led the day's top performers. Milwaukee's Matt Garza, Philadelphia's Cole Hamels, and Wei-Yin Chen of the Orioles all had strong showings, but you'll have to hit the jump for the complete rundown of yesterday's cleats that won.
