QUOTABLE “Walking off and all those people standing, that was something really special for me. I don’t think anybody really expects to experience that in their life.”
— Chris Rowley, a former Army lieutenant and the first West Point graduate to reach the majors, after pitching 51/3 innings against the Pirates to win his big league debut for the Blue Jays. Rowley, who missed the 2014 and 2015 minor league seasons while on active service, allowed one run and five hits. He left to a standing ovation from the Toronto crowd of 46,179.
