Outman, who had three hits and walked twice, socked his walk-off double off the top of the wall in right-center against Blue Jays right-hander Mitch White (0-1). The umpires reviewed the play to see if it cleared the wall for a home run but called the hit a double.

Bo Bichette had four hits, including a home run, to end an 0-for-18 drought, but the Blue Jays saw their two-game winning streak end. Closer Jordan Romano had the night off after he pitched four times in the previous five games.
