Bullpen steps up in Jays' win

TORONTO—Aaron Sanchez looked down at his finger and saw the blood a handful of pitches into his start.

All he could think about then was finishing the inning. So he did.

Sanchez threw 13 pitches, erasing a five-pitch lead-off walk with a strikeout and a double play before leaving Toronto's 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays yesterday with a split nail on his right middle finger.
