If you didn’t catch game 6 last night, you missed what might have been some of the most stressful and exciting baseball in Blue Jays history.
It started off early with a 1-0 lead for the Royals
Then things got interesting once again, do you remember game 5 against Texas in the ALDS in which they got the go ahead run off of the strangest play we never knew was a thing?
Well, this happened.
The home run ended up standing and Jays fans on the internet did not take kindly to the call.
“This is where I caught the ball”
But what’s done is done and we move on.
Jose cuts the lead to 1 after a ball that was destroyed and it was a ball game again.
Jump ahead and it’s 3-1 for the Royals in the top of the 8th. Jose is at bat again and..
HOLY CRAP We’ve got a tie game! Then the rain started and delayed the game for almost 45 minutes…. In the bottom of the 8th the Royals got one back to take the 4-3 lead. Now we get to the 9th.
Martin hits a single and Dalton Pompey is put in as the pinch runner. He steals second right away and then this happened.
No outs, runner on third and down 1 run! It’s the perfect storm for the Blue Jays to tie the game or take the lead. Pillar gets walked so we have 2 runners on. Navarro strikes out after one of the pitches is called a strike. The same thing happens to Revere, so we have 2 on and 2 outs with Josh Donaldson at the plate. He ended up grounding a ball to third to end the game. There’s a reason why some fans are angry if you look at this image.
Those 2 red ’s on the left? Called strikes (we can all agree with how Ben Revere reacted upon getting to the dugout)
But at the end of the day, the Blue Jays went 0-12 with Runners in Scoring position and the Royals got the win. They play the Mets for the World Series starting Tuesday. As for the Jays, it was one hell of a run, you brought an entire country together and I can not wait for next season to start back up!
Oh and Fox showed this during the 7th inning.
