Rougned Odor, Texas Ranger Has Game Winning “Hit”
It's no secret the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays don't really get along. Proof? Twitter.
Last fall the Jays sent the Rangers home early and moved on to the ALCS after a 3-run blast by Jose Bautista. Fast forward to yesterday, and it was Bautista and the Jays on the receiving end of a knock out blow!
Wow! Odor's punch was thrown after a number of things happened in Sunday's game to escalate tensions between the clubs. Bautista was hit by a pitch from Texas hurler Matt Bush. A few plays later, Bautista tired to take out Rangers 2nd Baseman Rougned Odor with a late slide. That's when tensions reach their boiling point, and both benches cleared. Here's a look at the play...
MLB Memes on facebook found the perfect photo.
Today there is a long list of ejections and pending suspensions to look over including:
- Toronto: first base coach Tim Leiper, manager John Gibbons, pitcher Jesse Chavez, right fielder Bautista, third baseman Josh donaldson, bench coach DeMarlo Hale
- Texas: second baseman Odor, bench coach Steve Buechele
Thankfully, that's it for the two ball clubs. They do not face each other again during the 2016 regular season.
