Troy Tulowitzki drove in four runs, including a three-run homer for his first hit this postseason, and the Toronto Blue Jays avoided elimination in the AL Division Series with a 5-1 win over the Texas Rangers in Game 3 on Sunday night.
The Blue Jays cut their deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-five matchup.
Texas has another chance Monday to clinch the series at home. If not, a deciding Game 5 will be played Wednesday in Toronto, where the Rangers won the first two games.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Marco Estrada limited the Rangers to one run and five hits over 6 1-3 innings.
Tulowitzki's two-out homer in the sixth put the Blue Jays up 5-0. That was two innings after he drew a bases-loaded walk.
Texas left-hander Martin Perez, somewhat a surprise pick as the Game 3 starter over veterans Derek Holland and Colby Lewis, gave up four runs and six hits.
Holland (4-3) starts Game 4 against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (11-11).
