Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) – An early offensive outburst backed a solid
start by Shelby Miller, leading the Atlanta Braves to a 5-2 win over the
Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.
Jonny Gomes hit a three-run double in the first inning, and his sacrifice fly
two innings later bounced Toronto starter Daniel Norris from the game early.
Norris (1-1) allowed all five Atlanta runs — four earned — on six hits and
two walks in just 2 2/3 innings with a strikeout. Marco Estrada, Jeff Francis
and Roberto Osuna combined to silence the Braves over the final 6 1/3 innings.
The Blue Jays got both of their runs on Russell Martin’s double off Miller
(2-0) in the sixth inning. Miller allowed two runs on five hits and three
walks in six innings with six strikeouts.
