The Blue Jays are heading home after an 8-2 run to play five games in four days against another wild card team, Tampa Bay. Meanwhile, the Rangers snapped a three-game losing streak.

“I don’t think about numbers, I don’t think about ‘winning the match myself,'” Perez said. “I only think of winning the match as a teammate.”

Garcia fired a fastball down the left line into the second set of Yusei Kikuchi, second of five loyalists to Jays, on the 24th of the season. This is the fifth time this season that he has participated in consecutive matches, and the first time since July 24-25.

He left Rangers for Miami to play a double header on Monday night and day, returning to Texas immediately afterwards to start a series against Oakland on Tuesday night.

The day trip is the result of rescheduling after closing.

Rangers interim manager Tony Beasley said he would encourage players to rest when they return rather than report at the usual times on Tuesday.

“It’s taxes,” Beasley said. “And you’re in September, where everybody’s running on fumes. There are some guys who don’t like it, and they want to be here at the usual time. But you have to think about the whole group. I want energy at 7 (pm).”
