The Toronto Blue Jays got just what they needed against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday, finding a way to remain alive in the American League Championship Series.

The Blue Jays took the lead for the first time in any game in the series when Josh Donaldson launched a home run off Corey Kluber in the third inning, and the Jays did a good job of building on that lead.

Edwin Encarnacion had a two-run single in the seventh inning to help Toronto pull away.

The Jays also got excellent pitching from starter Aaron Sanchez and their bullpen to emerge with a 5-1 win at the Rogers Centre.

The Indians still lead the series 3-1.

Sanchez was credited with the victory, as he gave up just one run on two hits and two walks in six innings. Kluber took the loss after surrendering two runs on four hits and two walks in five innings of work.

Game 5 will be played at the Rogers Centre on Wednesday afternoon, pitting Cleveland’s Ryan Merritt against Marco Estrada.
