Key To The Game: 

David Price is a former Cy Young winner and will be one of the most sought-after free agents in all of baseball once the winter comes along. He's also never won a postseason start, taking a loss in all seven of his career appearances. His eighth will be his most important of all -- a save-the-season outing which could propel Toronto into a winner-takes-all Game 7 on Saturday night. It may be a bit oversimplified to say that the weight of the entire 2015 campaign rests on Price's shoulders. However, it sure feels that way right now.

Prediction: Blue Jays Win 4-3

Price gets the monkey off his back with a gutsy performance, Toronto gets to Yordano Ventura early, and the Blue Jays hang on late to force a deciding Game 7 -- the way the baseball gods intend it.
