In a game that appeared to be slipping away from the Toronto Blue Jays, their biggest free agent signing came through to deliver the team's first home victory of the season.

Designated hitter Kendrys Morales slammed a first-pitch home run off Baltimore Orioles reliever Tyler Wilson, who had entered the game to retire Jose Bautista in the bottom of the eighth with his team down by just one run.

Toronto's Roberto Osuna promptly coughed up a 1-0 lead in his first save opportunity of the 2017 season. After allowing the leadoff man to reach, a stolen base and two sacrifice flies tied the game heading to the bottom of the ninth.

Thanks to Morales' theatrics though, Osuna came away with a 'W.'
