, Stroman ran the bases then leaped to the on-deck circle fist bumping his teammates and celebrated in the dugout.

For Stroman, it was the second hit of his career, both of which are extra base hits, in seven plate appearances. Stroman’s first career hit came a few weeks ago when he lined a pinch hit double against the St. Louis Cardinals. Stroman is now the first Blue Jays pitcher with a pair of extra-base hits in one season.

According to Statcast, the ball left Stroman’s bat at a speed of 99 MPH, and traveled 370 feet. This was the second home run hit by a pitcher in Blue Jays history. The first came back in 2003, and was delivered off the bat of Mark Hendrickson.
