There are ground ball pitchers. And there are fly ball pitchers.

Liam Hendriks is a warning-track pitcher.

Blue Jays outfielders tracked down four drives on the track — two in spectacular fashion — as the Jays scored a walk-off 3-2 win in the ninth before only 17,309 fans at the Rogers Centre on Wednesday night.

The Jays won their ninth straight as Dioner Navarro opened the inning with a single. Anthony Gose bunted 15 feet down the first base and Rays reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo threw low past first ,maybe 200 feet into foul ground down the right-field line, allowing pinch-runner Kevin Pillar to score all the way from first.

“I saw the ball go by me and thought: ‘We’re going to be in good shape, second and third, none out,’” said Gose.

But third base coach Luis Rivera had the windmill going and Pillar beat the throw with a belly-flop dive.

Now, if the Jays make it 10 straight Thursday against the Kansas City Royals, does Fergie Olver come out of retirement for one more: “How ’bout them Blue Jays?”

They won in complete fashion: Pitching, defence and timely hitting.

Jays hitters have been playing wall ball — or over-the-wall ball — during this winning streak, but it was outfielders crashing into the walls on this night that saved Hendriks.

n Gose used his speed, leaping ability and that other quality (no fear of the TD Bank or its logo painted on the wall) to steal an extra base hit from James Loney with the game tied 2-2 for the final out of the third.

“If the ball is in the air, I try to catch it,” Gose told reporters.

- Melky Cabrera leapt into the West Jet sign in left in the sixth, recoiled off the ‘W’, spun on one leg and crashed hard on the turf, stealing extra bases from Evan Longoria..

“That play seemed to take the wind out of their sails,” said Gose.

- Jose Bautista caught a Desmond Jennings fly ball on the track in the second.

- And Gose tracked down a Jennings fly on the rubberized track in the fourth.

The Milwaukee Brewers, under manager Harvey Kuenn, were nicknamed Harvey’s Wallbangers in the 1980s. The Jays, under John Gibbons, looked like Hendriks Headbangers.

Gose stayed at Hendriks’ house in Perth, Australia, as a 14-year old during a Goodwill Series tournament.
