When the Toronto Blue Jays needed a win most, Marco Estrada stepped up and tossed 7 2/3 innings, giving up just three hits and one run while striking out five. His efforts pushed the Jays past the Kansas City Royals in Game 5.

With the series heading back to Kauffman Stadium, the Jays will lean on their ace to hopefully provide similar performance to Estrada.
