Flair for the Dramatic

Troy Tulowitzki has a flair for the dramatic. When it comes down to the wire, he is always coming up with a big hit, as he has shown us over the course of the past two seasons in postseason action. Even when Tulowitzki is struggling, he is always one of those guys you want at the plate with the game on the line.

In the 2015 playoffs, he had two of the biggest hits for the Toronto Blue Jays.  In a win or go home game 3 of the ALDS, Troy Tulowitzki came up with two men on base and hit a three-run home run over the left field fence for one of the bigger moments in Blue Jays postseason history. Tulowitzki also came through with a huge three-run home run off Johnny Cueto in a huge game three of the ALCS win. In the 2016 playoffs, Tulowitzki had a few more huge hits of his own, including a three-run triple that really got the Blue Jays going to start off the ALDS.

With all this postseason success, Tulowitzki is tied for third with Jose Bautista on the Blue Jays all-time leaderboard for playoff RBI’s, just behind Blue Jays postseason heroes, Roberto Alomar and Joe Carter. Troy Tulowitzki has a knack for coming up with a big hit when most needed.
