The Toronto Blue Jays have eliminated the Texas Rangers from the 2016 MLB playoffs and are now on their way to the American League Championship Series for the second straight season.
Game 3 of ALDS ended in dramatic fashion as reigning MVP Josh Donaldson slid safely into home plate in the bottom of the 10th inning to claim a 7-6 Jays victory.
In the 2015 playoffs, the Rangers won the first two games of the ALDS in Toronto, but the Jays would go on to win the next three games and move on to the ALCS where they eventually lost in six games to the Kansas City Royals, who went on to win the World Series.
Toronto will now wait to see who emerges from the divisional series between the Boston Red Sox and the Cleveland Indians. Cleveland currently leads the series 2-0.
There are reports that second baseman Devon Travis has injured his knee and catcher Russell Martin could play his position, if Darwin Barney is not available.
There is also uncertainty surrounding Jays pitcher Francisco Liriano, after he was struck on the back of the head by the ball following a line-drive in Game 2 on Friday night.
Meantime, the Toronto Blue Jays have made an announcement that they will no longer be serving cans of beer at Rogers Centre for the remainder of the 2016 MLB playoffs.
