Worth noting

• When Boston's Daniel Nava hit a two-run single in the fifth inning of Friday night's game, it ended a streak of 19 consecutive scoreless frames by the Blue Jays' bullpen. Prior to that, the bullpen had not given up a run since the ninth inning of a Sept. 7 victory at Fenway Park. Since July 30, Toronto's relief staff ranks first in the American League with 140 strikeouts over 146 1/3 innings.
