Play ball! Two great teams will battle for dominance in the American League when the Toronto Blue Jays travel south to Texas to take on the Rangers in game 1 of the ALDS. Catch every inning of action online here on Thursday, Oct. 6th at 4:30pm EST.
October baseball does not get any better than this. The Toronto Blue Jays are roaring into this postseason series against the Texas Rangers after a dramatic wild card win over the Baltimore Orioles. Jays DH slugger Edwin Encarnacion came into the wild card game during the 11th inning and blasted a 3-run, walkoff dinger to end the game. Amazing. Will there be more fireworks when Toronto faces off with World Series MVP Cole Hamels who will be dealing for the Rangers? See all the action online here and find out. WATCH BLUE JAYS VS. RANGERS ONLINE HERE.
Toronto snuck into the wild card game finishing the regular season in the middle of the AL East with a record of 89-73. The Jays will have their hands full against the Rangers who have the home field advantage in this best-of-5 opening round. The Rangers are looking tough after ending their season on top of the AL West at 95-67.
Let’s not forget these two teams hate each other. The last time they tangled in the postseason, Texas Rangers’ second baseman Rougned Odor landed the most brutal punch in baseball after Joey Bautista came in hot with a late slide into second. Joey got rocked with a right hook to the jaw which will certainly not be forgotten about when these fierce rivals meet again in this series.
