I don’t even know what to say. After seemingly giving the game away, the Blue Jays rallied off of arguably the best closer in baseball to win in the 11th inning and complete the season sweep of the Athletics. Holy fuck.
Things worth mentioning…
Charlie Montoyo made an odd decision to pinch run Alen Hanson for Vlad Jr. in the bottom of the ninth inning, which ultimately resulted in the Blue Jays losing their best hitter as the team failed to score the winning run. Hilariously enough, Hanson took a walk in the bottom of the 11th inning, which played a key role in the team’s rally. Rowdy Tellez led off the 11th with a double, Hanson took a walk, and then after Billy McKinney beat out a possible double-play ball, Brandon “The Oakland Murderer” Drury tied the game on a three-run bomb. After that, Freddy Galvis singled, Danny Jansen took a walk, Eric Sogard flew out, and Justin Smoak walked things off with a two-out single.
