TORONTO — With a sta­dium full of peo­ple on their feet as he walked off the mound, Chris Row­ley started to be­come aware of the mag­ni­tude of his achieve­ment.

Row­ley pitched 5 1⁄3 in­nings to win his ma­jor-league de­but, Jose Bautista scored two runs and the Blue Jays beat the Pi­rates 7-2 on Satur­day.

A former first lieu­tenant in the United States Army and the first grad­u­ate of the U.S. Mil­i­tary Academy in West Point, N.Y., to reach the ma­jors, Row­ley missed all of the 2014 and 2015 mi­nor­bons

Mar­lins: Team pres­i­dent David Sam­son con­firmed that a signed agree­ment has been sub­mit­ted to Ma­jor League Base­ball to sell the Mar­lins to a group that in­cludes former Yan­kees cap­tain Derek Jeter. Sam­son said the MLB own­er­ship com­mit­tee will re­view the trans­ac­tion Wed­nes­day at the own­ers meet­ings in Chicago.

Na­tion­als: RHP Stephen Stras­burg, who has been on the dis­abled list since July 23 with a right el­bow nerve im­pinge­ment, will make a mi­nor-league re­hab start Mon­day at Class A Po­tomac.

Yan­kees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka was placed on the 10-day DL be­cause of shoul­der in­flam­ma­tion be­fore the Yan­kees’ game NEW YORK league sea­sons while on ac­tive ser­vice, in­clud­ing a stint in Bul­garia.

An un­drafted free agent, Row­ley pitched nine games for the Blue Jays’ Rookie League af­fil­i­ate in 2013 be­fore com­menc­ing his ser­vice. In Jan­uary 2016, fol­low­ing 30 months in the Army, he re­ceived an ex­cep­tion to the re­main­der of his ser­vice. Row­ley re­mains on in­di­vid­ual ready re­serve.

The right-han­der, who be­gan the season at Dou­ble-A New Hamp­shire, al­lowed one run and five hits. He struck out three and walked one.

Blue Jays man­ager John Gib- against the Red Sox. Man­ager Joe Gi­rardi said there’s noth­ing struc­turally wrong with Tanaka, who will rest and strengthen his shoul­der and is ex­pected back soon.

Car­di­nals: Rookie SS Paul DeJong hit his team-lead­ing 17th home run to help the Car­di­nals beat the Braves 6-5 to push their win­ning streak to eight and pull into a tie with the Cubs atop the Na­tional League Cen­tral. RHP Car­los Martinez threw six solid in­nings and also drove in a run for the Car­di­nals.

In­di­ans: OF Jay Bruce drove in his first two runs for the In­di­ans and RHP Mike Clevinger struck out nine in seven in­nings in a 3-0 win over the Rays. RHP Cody called Row­ley’s de­but “awe­some.”

“We’ve been look­ing for that,” Gib­bons said.

The only run off Row­ley came in the se­cond when Josh Bell hit a lead­off triple and scored on a two-out hit by Jordy Mercer.

Row­ley left to a stand­ing ova­tion from the crowd of 46,179 after giv­ing up a one-out sin­gle and walk in the sixth. His par­ents and sis­ter were among the crowd.

“Walk­ing off and (see­ing) all those peo­ple stand­ing, that was some­thing re­ally spe­cial for me,” Row­ley said. “I don’t think any­body re­ally ex­pects to ex­pe­ri­ence that in their life.” Allen earned his 20th save.

Red Sox: Rookie OF An­drew Ben­in­tendi rock­eted a pair of three-run homers and the Red Sox bounced back from a tough loss to rough up the Yan­kees 10-5. ... Knee in­flam­ma­tion put 2B Dustin Pe­droia on the DL for the third time this season.

Brew­ers: 2B Eric Sog­ard raced home with the win­ning run on a wild pitch in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Brew­ers snapped a six-game los­ing streak with a 6-5 vic­tory over the Reds. ... The Brew­ers ac­quired 2B Neil Walker from the Mets. What the Brew­ers gave up was not im­me­di­ately known, but one re­port said it would be a player to be named later. 1931: The Reds’ Tony Cuc­cinello had six hits in six at-bats in the first game of a dou­ble­header at Bos­ton’s Braves Field. Cuc­cinello had a triple, two dou­bles, three sin­gles and five RBIs. 1948: The In­di­ans’ Satchel Paige, 42, pitched his first ma­jor league com­plete game against the White Sox. Paige gave up five hits en route to 5-0 vic­tory. 1979: The Car­di­nals’ Lou Brock reached the 3,000-hit plateau with an in­field hit off Cubs pitcher Dennis Lamp. 2016: The Yan­kees’ Tyler Austin and Aaron Judge be­came the first team­mates to hit home runs in the first at­bats of their ma­jor league de­buts in the same game.
