Porcello allowed a leadoff single in the 19th to Munenori Kawasaki. Jose Reyes bunted and reached first on Porcello's error while Kawasaki reached third. Left fielder Melky Cabrera was walked to load the base to bring up Bautista.
It was the Blue Jays' longest game in time at six hours, 37 minutes, and the first time they played past 18 innings.
Right-hander Chad Jenkins (1-1) allowed seven hits over six innings to earn the win.

The Astros were charged with only one error, but a series of miscues greased the skids to an end of their seven-game winning streak against the Rangers.
Houston left-hander Dallas Keuchel uncorked a pair of wild pitches while his teammates surrendered extra bases with unsound decisions against aggressive Texas baserunners.

With runners on second and third and one out, Tampa Bay opted to play a defensive alignment of five infielders and two outfielders. The Chicago first baseman drove the ball into a vacant spot in right field to score Ryan Sweeney with the winning run.
Each team scored a run in the fifth inning and a run in the seventh inning. The starting pitchers, Tampa Bay's Alex Cobb and Chicago's Travis Wood, each allowed one run in six innings.

Jackson, acquired from the Detroit Tigers in a deadline deal on July 31, helped the Mariners build a 4-0 lead through the first seven innings.
Seattle's bullpen then held on for the win. Closer Fernando Rodney, pitching for the third consecutive game, gave up three hits and a run in the ninth inning but got out of a bases-loaded jam to post his 32nd save of the season.
