The Rangers' season came to an end in the tenth inning. Donaldson led the inning off with a double. With first base open, the Blue Jays intentionally walked Encarnacion to open up the possibility of a double play. They struck out Jose Bautista for the first out of the inning. Martin stepped to the plate and hit a ground ball to Andrus at shortstop for what should have been an inning-ending double play. However, Andrus' throw to Odor was low, Odor had a tough time turning the double play, and the throw to first base went in the dirt and took Moreland off the first base bag. Donaldson read the play perfectly, hustled home, and the Blue Jays finished off the sweep.
I really thought this series was going to be more similar to last year's ALDS between these two teams, going all five games and generating a genuine hatred between the two teams. This series was decidedly one-sided, with Toronto beating the Rangers soundly in two of the three games and winning all three.
With the Blue Jays' win, I'm officially 0-1 in my Division Series predictions. As it turns out (anyone who's paid any attention to my sports gambling career knows this), I'm really bad at predicting things. Oh well!
P.S. How ironic is it that an error by Odor, the man who knocked a few of Bautista's teeth out back in May, caused the Rangers to lose? I don't have a dog in this fight, but it has to be satisfying to be Bautista in this situation?
