Blue Jays top Rays with walk-off home run from Hernandez

The Toronto Blue Jays topped the Tampa Bay Rays in dramatic fashion in MLB on Saturday.

The Blue Jays trailed the Rays by four runs entering the ninth inning, but rallied to score four and extend play.

Teoscar Hernandez secured an impressive 10-9 comeback victory by blasting a walk-off home run in the 12th inning.

The 26-year-old outfielder went two for six at the plate and notched two home runs. He has 14 this year and helped Toronto end a two-game losing streak.

Tampa Bay's Travis d'Arnaud also had a good day, and went two for five, notching a home run of his own as well as three RBIs.

The Blue Jays are fourth in the American League (AL) East standings with a 40-66 record – 18.5 games back from the Rays.
