Blue Jays aim for another power surge against Astros

The Toronto Blue Jays produced another power-laden display on offense Saturday, slugging three home runs for the second time in as many games against the Houston Astros, this time earning a victory that evened their three-game series and set the table for a rubber match.

But one of their homers resonated from a historical perspective. Blue Jays third baseman Cavan Biggio cranked his third home run this season in the Blue Jays' 8-4 victory, his first ever at Minute Maid Park. His father, Craig, belted 79 home runs at Minute Maid Park during his Hall of Fame career with the Astros, and the elder Biggio was in the stands to witness his son go yard.

"It was just huge for our team getting on the board early," Cavan Biggio said. "Playing here, in general, is always pretty special not only for me, but for my family. So, it was pretty cool. I'm not going to lie."
