This weekend was a bit swing for the Blue Jays in the wild-card race, thanks in part to Cleveland.
The Blue Jays took care of business against the Twins on Saturday and Sunday. They won 6-2 on Saturday behind a good start from Steven Matz and then they won 5-3 on Sunday after a five-run explosion in the first inning.

On Sunday, ace Gerrit Cole took the mound in a huge game and wound up getting smacked around for seven earned runs over five-and-two-thirds innings in an 11-1 loss.
