Jose Bautista was the hero in Sunday's marathon 6-5 victory over the Tigers, delivering a walkoff RBI single in the 19th inning to bring an end to the madness.

Bautista had struggled throughout the day until that point, as he finished the day 1-for-8 plus a pair of walks. The Jays loaded the bases with nobody out against Rick Porcello to begin the 19th inning, and Bautista responded with a deep fly to right field that easily cleared the drawn-in outfield. Joey Bats is now slashing .294/.411/.511 with 22 long balls and 70 RBI on the season.

Jose Bautista finished 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, and three RBI on Wednesday as the Blue Jays defeated the Orioles on Wednesday.

The two runs the Blue Jays scored in the first inning, sans Bautista's input, was more than enough for starter Drew Hutchison, but Bautista provided plenty of insurance. He belted a two-run home run in the second, and knocked in another run with a double in the sixth. The slugger's slash line remains at an astounding .297/.412/.525 with 22 home runs and 68 RBI.
