Emotions swelled for both Baltimore and Toronto when the Blue Jays walked off on the Orioles after 11 long innings. The final score was 5-2, Toronto.


The Baltimore Orioles travelled to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays for the post season Wild Card game, Tuesday Night.

This is the first playoff game for the Orioles in three seasons. The Blue Jays are in their second year in a row since their back to back World Series wins in 1992 and 1993.

Both teams finished the regular season with an 89-73 record. This was the first time these two teams faced off in the post season.

The game started off with no team scoring for the first inning.

Jose Bautista puts the Blue Jays on the board with a homerun for one point in the bottom of the second inning.

The Orioles came back in the 4th inning when Mark Trumbo hits one home, also sending Adam Jones from second base to the home plate.

No more points were scored through the rest of the fourth and the top of the fifth innings. The Blue Jays brought some movement on the field when Michael Saunders got on 2nd base. Kevin Pillar followed him with another double, putting runners on 2nd and 3rd. #3 Carrera then hits Saunders home when he hits a single, tying up the game 2-2.

 

Following the tying score, home plate went untouched for a while. However, in a poor display of sportsmanship by a spectator, a can of beer was thrown at Orioles #25 Hyun Soo Kim as he was making the catch to end the 7th inning. Adam Jones was not pleased. Jones chose to give him a piece of his mind.

The game continued to go un-scored and into extra innings, ending by a three-run home run hit by #10, Edwin Encarnacion.

Toronto will head to face the Texas Rangers for a best-of-five. As for Baltimore, they will be heading home.

I love sports, current events, and anything outdoors. My days are filled with writing, hanging out with my daughter, and working on airplanes. I also enjoy eating. A lot.
