After the game, Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said in an interview,I think Ray is the best pitcher in the majors right now.Everyone feels he'll give us a chance to win when he gets on the mound.I hope Ray can hold up to the 7th inning.He does what he has to do.It's amazing.
It is no exaggeration to praise Montoyo. Ray who retrospected this year, recorded an outstanding record of 11 wins, 5 losses, 166 innings, 212 strikeouts and a 2.60 ERA in 27 games.
