Alejandro Kirk had a great game at the plate, going 2-for-5 with 3 runs batted in and a home run. Bo Bichette also had a notable performance, going 4-for-5 with 2 runs scored and an RBI. Matt Chapman and Brandon Belt also homered after both went deep last night.

Out of the bullpen, Jay Jackson went 2 perfect innings of work, striking out 2 while finishing the game for Toronto.

With the win, the Blue Jays improved to 89-71 and are now 18 games above .500 on the season. They also reduced their magic number 1, and a Seattle loss tonight will ensure a post-season berth.

UP NEXT: The Blue Jays take on the Rays on Sat, Sep 30 @ 3:07 PM EDT in Toronto. Hyun Jin Ryu is scheduled to start for Toronto.
