Thornton (1-0) secured the win over Atlanta on Tuesday, firing a scoreless seventh inning during which he allowed one hit and did not record any walks or strikeouts.

Thornton was called upon to pitch in the seventh and surrendered a double to Cristian Pache after getting two easy outs but was able to get out of the inning with no harm done. The Blue Jays tacked on three runs in the eighth and were able to eventually notch the 5-3 victory, which secured the 27-year-old his first win since September 2019. Thornton has a solid 2.45 ERA over 18.1 innings, but his 1.20 WHIP suggests he's still letting men on too often.
