Who had the better Blue Jays-Astros game: Randal Grichuk or Jake Marisnick?

The Astros' latest series against the Blue Jays has featured impressive all-around games from both sides, and the two teams have traded blows. The Blue Jays won on Monday, 6-3, while the Astros struck back with a 7-0 triumph on Tuesday.

Monday was the Randal Grichuk Show. The Blue Jays outfielder crushed a titanic 471-foot long ball off Will Harris, then made his homer stand up by robbing a game-tying three-run blast from George Springer in the ninth:

However, the Astros had an answer to Grichuk on Tuesday. One of their own outfielders, Jake Marisnick, stepped up in a similar manner.

In the sixth, Marisnick ranged far to his right to track down a drive into the left-center-field gap by Justin Smoak that could have very well been a game-tying two-run double had it been misplayed. Instead, the Astros maintained their 2-0 lead, and Marisnick put the game away with a three-run homer against Preston Guilmet in the eighth to push Houston's lead to five:

Both Grichuk and Marisnick's games featured excellent performances on offense and defense. So whose was better?
