TORONTO – Colby Rasmus tried to forget everything that happened early Sunday afternoon.

An 0 for 3 start to the day didn’t help the Toronto Blue Jays much, especially when he popped out in a big spot in the seventh inning. But when the Houston Astros chose to again intentionally walk Edwin Encarnacion to get to Rasmus in the ninth, the centre fielder came through with the game-winning single to give the Blue Jays a 2-1 walk-off win.

“It set up the way they want it to, in their favour, with a base open able to walk Eddie,” manager John Gibbons said. “And then Colby stepped up.”

It was shaping to be a day for ruing missed opportunities. The Blue Jays left 12 runners on base and had plenty of chances to take the lead. Three times they had a runner in scoring position and failed to bring him home.
