Goins will get much of the deserved credit, but a masterful slide at home by Rob Refsnyder was the difference in the game. Still, it was a nice moment for Goins, who had two hits in five at-bats on the night. The 29-year-old has played all over the diamond for the Jays this year, batting .217/.271/.339 in 91 games.

Ryan Goins went 3-for-4 with two RBI and delivered a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth as the Blue Jays outlasted the Indians 8-7 on Wednesday.

He came to the dish with two outs and the bases loaded in the final frame. He stroked a single to right field for the walk-off winner. He had another RBI single earlier in the game. Goins is batting .222/.296/.389 with three homers and 13 RBI on the season.

Ryan Goins drove in four runs Monday to lead the Blue Jays past the Yankees.

Goins slugged a two-run homer off Yankees starter Luis Severino in the top of the second and he was credited with two RBI when both Justin Smoak and Devon Travis scored on his sacrifice fly to deep center in the top of the sixth. Goins has been getting regular playing time in the absence of Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) and Josh Donaldson (calf), but the versatile 29-year-old holds a weak .208/.264/.396 batting line in 20 games.

Ryan Goins went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Angels.

This was Goins' first homer of the season and supplied his first two RBI in the process. Having received just 20 at-bats to date, there is no fantasy intrigue here.

Dalton Pompey didn't make it either. Goins and Pompey were both on the roster for Tuesday night's American League Wild Card Game, but the Blue Jays obviously need to carry more pitchers in the best-of-five Division Series. J.A. Happ and Aaron Sanchez have been added.
