TORONTO - There are ground ball pitchers.

And there are fly ball pitchers.

Liam Hendriks is a warning track pitcher.

Toronto Blue Jays outfielders tracked down four drives on the track, two in spectacular fashion, as the Jays scored a walk-off 3-2 win with none out in the bottom of the ninth inning before only 17,309 fans at the Rogers Centre Wednesday night.

The Jays won their ninth straight game when Dioner Navarro opened with a single. Anthony Gose bunted 15 feet in front of the plate and Rays reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo threw the ball past first base about 250 feet into foul ground in right field. That allowed pinch runner Kevin Pillar to score all the way from first the winner.

If the Jays make it 10 wins in a row Thursday against the Kansas City Royals, anyone up for bringing out Fergie Oliver for one good “How ‘bout them Blue Jays?”
