RHP Gausman leaves Jays' win with cut on finger

To prevent cuts and blisters, Gausman said he routinely treats the area with a laser between starts, and he will continue to do so this week. He’s expected to start Game 2 of a wild-card series Saturday.

After Gausman left, right-hander Zach Pop (4-0) pitched two perfect innings. Adam Cimber worked the sixth, and Anthony Bass gave up a solo home run to Bobby Dalbec in the seventh.

Yimi Garcia pitched the eighth inning and Jordan Romano finished off the 6-3 victory for his 36th save in 42 chances.

The win edged the Blue Jays closer to clinching home-field advantage in the wild-card round.

The Jays finish the season with a three-game series in Baltimore against the Orioles starting Monday.
