After trading Papelbon, Phillies beat Jays 3-2
TORONTO (AP) -- The Philadelphia Phillies won their first game after trading All-Star closer Jonathan Papelbon to Washington, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 Tuesday night for their ninth victory in 10 games since the All-Star break.
Adam Morgan stopped a four-start winless streak and Cody Asche drove in two runs for the Phillies, who had lost their previous eight games against Toronto.
Morgan (2-2) allowed two runs and five hits in six innings to win for the first time since his major league debut, June 21 against St. Louis.
Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista left after an apparent right hamstring injury in the eighth.
All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, acquired by Toronto from Colorado, was not active and was expected to make his Blue Jays debut on Wednesday.
