With Toronto's 4-2 win over the San Diego Padres, Sanchez notched his 11th win of the season. In the process, he became the first pitcher in club history to win 10 consecutive decisions since Roy Halladay claimed 15 in a row in 2003.

As a decision looms on whether Toronto will move Sanchez to the bullpen, he's making his case to stay in the rotation.
“He’s putting himself in the elite class in baseball at a young age," manager John Gibbons told reporters after the win.
In his sophomore season as a full-time major leaguer, the 24-year-old is 11-1 with a sparkling 2.72 ERA and 115 strikeouts in 132 1/3 innings.
He was also named an All-Star for the first time in his young career.
