9, as the Toronto Blue Jays host the Texas Rangers in Game 3 of an American League Division Series at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.

Josh Donaldson doubled in the bottom of the 10th inning, then scored all the way from second base when the Rangers' Rougned Odor threw wildly at first base while trying to get Russell Martin out, setting off a wild celebration. Thus it was that Donaldson, the reigning AL MVP, strode to the plate to lead off the 10th inning and promptly stroked a one-hop double off the right-centre field fence.

Edwin Encarnacion, who had three RBIs in the game, was walked intentionally before Jose Bautista struck out.

Aaron Sanchez is set to make his first career playoff start and threw exceptionally well in his last outing, the Blue Jays' final regular season game.

And it sends the Rangers, the team that grumbled about getting shown up in their ALDS loss a year ago, and then threw balls and actual punches at the Blue Jays this season, home for another off-season after their sixth straight loss to Toronto.

CLOSING TIME: Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna left the AL wild-card game with a sore shoulder.

It's been a Thanksgiving weekend to remember for Toronto Blue Jays fans.

"It's tough to see that, but it's part of the game", Gomez said after the game. The veteran finished the year with a 6-5 record and a 3.71 ERA in 19 starts, but those numbers don't reflect how effective he was, especially in the first half of the season. "It doesn't feel good at all but we gave everything we had".

Mark Shapiro, the Toronto Blue Jays president and chief executive officer, said the play unfolded before his eyes like it was in slow motion. Bitter emotions weren't evident on the field during this series though, and Toronto won the first two games easily. Only three times have teams rallied from an 0-2 deficit after losing the first two games at home: the 2001 Yankees (against Oakland), the 2012 Giants (Cincinnati) and the 2015 Jays (Texas). The Indians lead the Red Sox 2-0 in their ALDS, with Game 3 scheduled for Monday afternoon. Toronto tied it up in the bottom of the sixth on a passed ball, but the Jays couldn't get back out in front in the following three innings. It was the first time in franchise postseason history that Toronto had accomplished the feat. He has given up eight homers in 20 1/3 innings since coming back.

The Blue Jays, of course, will take the victory however it came.

Second baseman Devon Travis is nursing a bone bruise in his right knee and will welcome a few days off.

Liriano, 32, stayed on his feet and walked around the infield briefly before his teammates, a trainer and manager John Gibbons came out to check on him.

Meantime, the Toronto Blue Jays have made an announcement that they will no longer be serving cans of beer at Rogers Centre for the remainder of the 2016 Major League Baseball playoffs.
