Josh Donaldson’s dash leads Blue Jays into ALCS


Toronto earns 1st ever post-season sweep with win over Rangers

Josh Donaldson scored on a throwing error as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Texas Rangers 7-6 in 10 innings to complete the three-game sweep of the American League Division Series.

Donaldson led off the 10th with a double into the right-center field gap, and then Matt Bush intentionally walked Edwin Encarnacion.

After Jose Bautista struck out, Russell Martin hit a grounder to shortstop Elvis Andrus, and Andrus tried to start a double play with a feed to Odor at second. Odor short-hopped his throw to first baseman Mitch Moreland and the ball skipped away, allowing Donaldson to dash home and beat Moreland’s throw with a dive across the plate.

Toronto is headed to the AL Championship Series after beating Texas in an ALDS for a second straight year and will face the winner of the Indians-Red Sox series. The Blue Jays will travel to either Cleveland or Boston on Friday for Game 1.
