Josh Donaldson came home from second base on an errant double play attempt in the 10th inning to give the Toronto Blue Jays a dramatic 7-6 win over the Texas Rangers and a sweep of 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, cranking up the noise in a sold-out Rogers Centre.
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.
The Toronto dugout emptied. Texas challenged the play to no avail and the celebration was on.
The Jays will face either Boston or Cleveland in the AL Championship Series.
