Jose Bautista became the first Toronto Blue Jays player to hit two home runs in a single postseason game as he tied the game in the eighth inning with a two-run shot off Ryan Madson.

Bautista’s first home run of the night cut the Royals’ lead to 2–1 with a solo shot off Yordano Ventura.

The six-time All-Star has hit four home runs in the playoffs to set a new single postseason record for the Blue Jays.

Bautista also became the first player to hit a game-tying or go-ahead home run in the eighth inning or later of a Game 6 or 7 in the ALCS since Aaron Boone’s winning home run against the Boston Red Sox in 2003.

The Blue Jays hope to stave off elimination and push the series to a seventh game. The winner of the ALCS will take on the New York Mets in the World Series, which is set to begin on Tuesday.
