He picked up his last win on Aug. 23 in Boston, allowing just one earned run on six hits and walking one while striking out six in six innings of a 9-3 Blue Jays win.

Shortstop Bo Bichette came up big in Saturday’s 4-1 win over the Pirates, going 2-for-4 with three RBIs and one run scored. Bichette enjoyed Pittsburgh pitching that streak, going 5-for-9 with two doubles, a homer and five RBI. He has hits in five of his last six games. For the season, Bichette is batting .265 with 18 homers, 71 RBI and 69 runs scored.
