The Blue Jays get back in the series with the Texas Rangers, as they win Game three 5-1.

Big hit of the night for the Jays came in the sixth when Troy Tulowitzki hit a long drive to left field, a three-run shot that extended the score to 5-0 at the time and helped to put the Blue Jays in position to win.

On the mound, Marco Estrada tossed 6.1 innings, with good command of his pitches, allowing one run on five hits, with no walks and four strikeouts. He started the game retiring the first eight batters before giving up a double to Hanser Alberto in the third.

As for Estrada’s counterpart, Rangers starter Martin Perez, he gave up four runs, on six hits, walking three and striking out two in five innings.

The Blue Jays bullpen did a tremendous job of not allowing a hit in 2.2 innings, while keeping the Rangers in check and the lead intact.

The Rangers can still win the series with a victory in Game Four on Monday in Arlington.
