Watch: Stroman smacks pinch-hit double for 1st career knock
Jeff Curry / USA TODAY Sports

Marcus Stroman is evidently a man of many talents.

Making a rare appearance in the batter's box Tuesday in place of reliever Jason Grilli, Stroman connected with an 11th-inning pinch-hit double off St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Miguel Socolovich to quickly put himself in scoring position and earn himself the first hit of his major-league career.

The two-bagger also earned Stroman recognition in the Blue Jays' history books, becoming the first Toronto pitcher to record a pinch hit.

Stroman then came around to score the game-winning run just two batters later thanks to a throwing error by shortstop Aledmys Diaz, as the Blue Jays held on to defeat the Cardinals 6-5.
