Are you even Canadian if you didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving Sunday around a TV watching the Jays game?
A tense game saw Josh Donaldson score on a throwing error as the Toronto Blue Jays went 10 innings to win 7-6 over the Texas Rangers and also sweep the American League Division Series on Sunday.
Donaldson opened the 10th with a double off hard-throwing Matt Bush and Edwin Encarnacion was intentionally walked.
After Jose Bautista struck out, Russell Martin in an eight-pitch at-bat hit into what seemed to be an inning ending-double play, but Rougned Odor bounced the throw to first and a diving Donaldson beat Mitch Moreland’s desperate throw to home.
Texas challenged the play, but no dice.
Toronto will play the winner of the division series between the Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians in the AL Championship Series.
Cleveland leads the series 2-0 with Game 3 in Boston Monday.
Fans at Rogers Centre celebrated with beer in plastic cups after staff decided to halt the sale of cans for the rest of the post-season due to the can throwing incident in last Tuesday’s wild card game.
