• Wednesday night's game marked just the fourth time in franchise history that the Blue Jays shut out an opponent despite their starting pitcher recording fewer than 12 outs. Oddly, it's the second time it's happened in two years, as they did it last June 15, when Drew Hutchinson lasted two-thirds of an inning. Prior to 2012, you'd have to go back to May 12, 1993 (Todd Stottlemyre, 2 2/3 innings) and before that, Aug. 27, 1985 (Tom Filer, one inning).
• The Blue Jays saw their streak of double-figure-hit games snapped at six on Wednesday, even though they outhit Atlanta, 8-4. They also saw their run of five-run games ended at six. Their 47 runs over that stretch led the Majors (two better than Baltimore).
• Wednesday night was only the fourth time in 2013 that the Blue Jays won when scoring three runs or fewer. It was the first such win since their 3-2 victory at Boston on May 11.
