He didn’t assume the long flyball would clear the fence.“You never know with this field,” Prado said. “There’s days where the ball just carries more than other days. I was just glad I hit it in the air because I didn’t want to hit a ground ball for a double play.”Chen (6-9) allowed one run on three hits. He struck out seven without walking a batter.“When he’s locating, he’s got enough weapons to get people out and he’s a guy who can really pitch Mike Schmidt Jersey ,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “It’s nice to see the guy we thought we had when he’s healthy.”J.T. Realmuto hit his 18th home run and Brian Anderson knocked in two for the Marlins, who snapped a four-game skid.Toronto’s Justin Smoak hit a two-run homer, his 23rd of the season, in the ninth. It was Smoak’s fourth consecutive game with a home run.Anderson’s sacrifice fly and Realmuto’s homer gave Miami an early 2-0 lead.Randal Grichuk got the Blue Jays on the board with a sacrifice fly in the fourth.Anderson drew a bases-loaded walk for a 3-1 lead right before Prado’s double.“Our starting pitching has been getting hit around pretty good the last week to 10 days, putting us behind the eight ball,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. “It’s hard to come back each night.”Marco Estrada (7-11) allowed eight hits and six runs in 4 1/3 innings.“I’m trying to give these guys innings and obviously I’m not doing my job right now Mitch Williams Jersey ,” Estrada said. “But I’m going to keep working hard and get this thing right. Hopefully for the next one I’ll feel a lot better and pitch better for these guys.”The Marlins also welcomed back center fielder Lewis Brinson from the disabled list. Brinson went 1 for 4 after missing the last 48 games with a hip injury.“It’s just good to get guys back out there,” Mattingly said.STRAIGHT EIGHTSDan Straily and Chen pitched eight innings in consecutive games, becoming the first Marlins to do so since May 6-7, 2014, when Henderson Alvarez tossed a shutout and Tom Koehler went eight innings in games against the New York Mets.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: RHP Marcus Stroman (blister) is looking to return from the disabled list and start Monday’s game against Tampa Bay. “Stro threw a side today and he felt really good,” Gibbons said. … IF Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is progressing toward a return. “Solarte is doing everything http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-dave-cash-jersey ,” Gibbons said. “He’s been swinging it, running, doing all of that stuff, he’s coming along pretty quick.”Marlins: RHP Pablo Lopez (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list and is out for the rest of the season finishing his rookie year with a 2-4 record and 4.14 ERA in 10 starts. … RHPs Elieser Hernandez (blister) and Jarlin Garcia (shin) will begin their rehab assignments on Sunday with Triple-A New Orleans.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Sean Reid-Foley (0-2, 8.68 ERA) will start Sunday’s series finale.Marlins: RHP Jeff Brigham will make his major league debut. Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesThe Washington Nationals reportedly agreed to trade starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez to the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.The Nationals will receiveminor-league infielder Gilbert Lara and minor-league catcher KJ Harrison in exchange for Gonzalez Steve Carlton Jersey, perUSA Today's Bob Nightengale.The move will bolster a Brewers staff that has been decimated by injuries to Brent Suter (Tommy John surgery) and Jimmy Nelson (shoulder surgery).An 11-year veteran, Gonzalez is 7-11 with a 4.57 ERA and 1.53 WHIP this season. He's logged his highest walk rate per nine innings (4.3) since 2009.He's been especially shaky since the All-Star break with a 6.55 ERA, 32 strikeouts and 22 walks across 44 innings.ESPN Stats amp; Info ESPNStatsInfoGio Gonzalez has a 6.53 ERA since the start of June (73rd out of 74 qualified SP during that span, ahead of only Bartolo Colons 7.01 ERA).Gonzalez has a 6.75 ERA in 5 career starts at Miller Park, including a 9.82 ERA in 3 starts there over the last 3 seasons.But with few options ahead of Friday's waiver trade deadline, the Brewers couldn't be picky as they continue to pursue a National League playoff spot.
