TORONTO — It is not too often that a baseball game includes so many bizarre plays in nine innings, but in Wednesday night’s meeting between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers, they all happened in just one inning.
The game would end in a 6-3 victory for Toronto, sending them to the ALCS for the first time since 1993… and it was the event-filled seventh inning that led up to the victory.
Certainly the highlight of the top of the inning, was the Rangers scoring on an unintentional interference call (video above). It put them ahead 3-2 and fans responded by throwing trash onto the field.
The Blue Jays would answer in a big way in the bottom of the seventh. Texas committed three straight errors, which would lead to Toronto tying the game at 3 runs a piece. But then Jose Bautista crushed a three-run home run, putting the score at 6-3.
That would be how the game ended, and the Blue Jays are headed to the American League Championship Series.
