Russell Martin joins rare company with Game 3 ALDS home run
Oct 21 2016 by Marjorie Miles
"It was a very scary situation; I hope everything goes well for him".
Beltre hit.182 with no homers and no RBIs as the Rangers were swept out of the postseason for the first time since back-to-back ALDS losses to the New York Yankees in 1998 and 1999.
Edwin Encarnacion is intentionally walked for Jose Bautista, who Bush strikes out with pure gas. While Mitch Moreland made a great play to block the wild throw, the throw was just wild enough that it allowed Josh Donaldson to scamper home from third base with the winning run. I just pulled the ball a little bit. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital for tests, then was cleared to fly home with his teammates, who waited an hour on the tarmac for him to join them.
The Toronto Blue Jays will not be serving beer in cans at the Rogers Centre for the rest of the post-season after a can was thrown on the field at a game against the Baltimore Orioles last week. So I will say this in closing, the Blue Jays are going to have there hands full. Colby Lewis squares off against Sanchez in the game. If Odor held the ball instead of risking a poor throw, Bush could have gotten out of the inning with no harm.
In the course of such a frustrating September, it became easy to assume that the Blue Jays' home run stroke had abandoned them, but the power prowess they've displayed in four consecutive playoff wins has offered convincing evidence to the contrary.
Toronto is headed back to the AL Championship Series after beating Texas in an ALDS for a second straight year and will face the victor of the Cleveland-Boston series.
The Blue Jays hammered their way to success in the series, but won Game 3 on Sunday on a walk-off error after the Rangers failed to turn a double play.
Major League Baseball playoffs: Cleveland Indians vs
All of the preceding would probably make Blue Jays fans feel better if there wasn't the sense of doom hanging over the off-season. As the Cleveland Indians stripped off their valuables and donned goggles ahead of champagne celebrations, the call went up.
Penguins center Sidney Crosby diagnosed with concussion
Considering that he skated Tuesday could be considered as a good sign, but returning from a concussion is different for everyone. Sullivan declined to speculate as to whether Crosby's history of concussions would impact his return from this specific injury.
Banister was gracious in a defeat he acknowledged was "disappointing".
"I was thinking 'Not double play, ' Martin said". He defends his players and his decisions, even when asked about them again and again, careful not to criticize. The Rangers then took the lead in the sixth after Moreland smoked a double to deep left center, plating two runs. For Texas to author a turnaround similar to what Toronto did last season, it not only needs to find a way to win in a hostile environment but needs to find some pitchers to keep the ball in the park after surrendering six home runs in the first two games of the series.
"Unfortunately we didn't click at the right time", Andrus said.
"Home runs are always a good thing", Gibbons said.
Kevin Pillar, Ezequiel Carrera and Encarnacion, who ended the wild-card game with a three-run homer in the 11th inning, hit solo homers in a five-batter span in the fifth.
"So he's just going for some further tests".
-Toronto is 4-0 to start the postseason. The Rangers dragged the series to game 5 a year ago.
