Defense also helped him. In the 4th inning, center fielder Kevin Kiermaier caught Devers’ batted ball as he fell, and in the 7th inning, right fielder George Springer caught Masataka Yoshida’s batted ball as he fell.

It seemed like the game was given away in vain. However, they survived dramatically with one out left.

In an instant, the chance to end the game with 2 outs and 3rd base on base came back, but George Springer retired with an infield grounder, leading to overtime. After a tense overtime battle, Toronto won a valuable victory.
