From the big league diamond…the hunt for October is underway with the MLB Wildcard playoffs and the Baltimore Orioles season came to an end last night in Toronto as the Blue Jays break a 2-2 tie in the 11th-Inning on a Edwin Encarnarcion (en-car-nar-see-ohn) walk-off 3-run Home Run to send the Jays to the American League Divisional series. Toronto will travel to Texas to face the Rangers beginning tomorrow afternoon in a
Best-Of 5-game series.
The other America League series sees Cleveland hosting the Red Sox also tomorrow night.
Tonight in the National League…those amazing Mets will host the Giants who won the pennant, the Giants won the pennant, won the pennant in each of the last 3 even years. New York and San Francisco tonight at 5pm on ESPN-TV in a 1-game playoff. The winner meets the Cubbies and Washington greets the Dodgers, both on Friday in the N-L Divisional series.
