Troy Tulowitzki Lifts Toronto Blue Jays in 11th for 3-2 Win vs. Minnesota Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Troy Tulowitzki drove in the go-ahead run with a two-out, two-strike single in the 11th inning Thursday night, and the Toronto Blue Jays stopped a five-game losing streak with a 3-2 comeback victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Edwin Encarnacion's two-run home run tied the game in the sixth for the only big hit during a duel between Marco Estrada and Ervin Santana, who pitched eight innings apiece. Estrada and Roberto Osuna (2-0) held the Twins hitless from the fourth through the 10th, and Joe Biagini worked the 11th inning for his first save.
Ryan Pressly (1-3) gave up the one-out single to Encarnacion in the top of the 11th that set up the winning run, and Tulowitzki delivered against Fernando Abad to send the Twins to their 16th loss in the last 19 games.
