Welington Castillo fired two homers in Chicago. It is the sixth time that he has won more than one homer in a game and the third time that he has achieved it in Toronto.
The Dominican Castillo added five homers against the Blue Jays in 2017, his biggest total against any opponent.
Martin erased a 2-1 deficit by a club that deposited the ball in the bullpen, behind left field, before Danny Farquhar (1-1), when there were two outs. It was Martin’s first homer in the season.
Seung Hwan Oh (1-0) took the win despite allowing Castillo’s second four-corner suit. That hit broke the tie in the top of the seventh inning, the only one in which the South Korean worked.
