Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk had quite a performance offensively and defensively on Monday at Minute Maid Park.

In the bottom of the eighth, the former St. Louis Cardinal cranked a home run that Statcast measured at 471 feet with a 110.2-mph exit velocity, to give the the Jays a 6-3 lead:

But the Astros were threatening with two on and no outs in the bottom of the ninth. Houston slugger George Springer thought he had a game-tying three-run dinger, but Grichuk jumped over the wall to make a ridiculous catch:

That was a game-saver for the Blue Jays, who held on to beat the defending champs, 6-3.
