Blue Jays Get Bats Going, Stave Off Elimination

Toronto Blue Jays  5 – 1 Cleveland Indians

With their backs against the wall, the Blue Jays finally got the bats going and survived another day. Toronto became the first team since 2004 to win a game after falling behind 0-3 in a series. The previous nine times that happened, the trailing team was swept.

Josh Donaldson opened the scoring with a home run to center. The fourth inning saw an Ezequiel Carrera single that extended the lead to 2-0. Cleveland would answer back in the fifth on an RBI double from Roberto Perez, but that was as close as they’d get.

The series resumes on Wednesday.
