Jays' Liriano cleared after taking line drive near head


"It's not impossible. We just have to win tomorrow night and take our chances the next game".

"He's just going for further tests", said Blue Jays manager Gibbons.

The score remained the same going into the bottom of the 9th, and things looked to be off to a great start for the home team.

However, it won't be easy to close out the American League's top-seeded team.

The Blue Jays now hold a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five-game series after the win.

After the game, Liriano was seen being wheeled into an ambulance on a stretcher with a brace around his neck.

Kevin Pillar, Ezequiel Carrera and Encarnacion, who ended the wild-card game with a three-run homer in the 11th inning, hit solo homers in a five-batter span in the fifth. It was Tulowitzki's first-ever plate appearance against Darvish in a game that mattered."Actually got to face him in an all-star game", the star shortstop said.

Texas scored twice in the eighth, including Gomez's single that struck Liriano.

Syria: de Mistura, east Aleppo will be destroyed in 2 months
The State Department said that breaking off of formal talks did not mean there would be no contact of any kind on Syria. Earlier this week, medics said the largest hospital in rebel-held parts of Aleppo had been "completely destroyed".

Findlay police say creepy clown sightings being taken seriously

The Jays rocked Yu for four home runs, tying a postseason record for one pitcher. "Any time you get a head injury you've got to get it looked at". The Rangers are 2-for-19 with runners in scoring position in the series, including 2-for-18 in Game 2. 3. Toronto is also 4-1 in Sanchez's last five starts with six days' rest, and 8-3 in Sanchez's last 11 home starts. We've won three games in a row before. Jays closer Roberto Osuna was able to covert a five-out save despite being listed as questionable to begin the series with shoulder soreness.

It has been a very bullish week for baseball, epitomized by the Toronto Blue Jays, baseball in Canada and Major League Baseball overall. They know better than anyone how vulnerable a two-game lead in a five-game series can be, having overcome such a deficit previous year against this same Texas club. "We don't have the big contracts or any of that stuff", second baseman Jason Kipnis said. Back on May 15, the Rangers tagged him with six runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings. "But yeah, it was a battle". He drove in a run in Toronto's five-run third inning. The ball struck him on the side of the head and caromed into the outfield.

Rangers outfielder Carlos Gomez appreciates the Blue Jays' fans "intensity". Gomez winced as the ball caromed into right-center field for a single to make it 5-2. Now with two outs in the inning, Osuna snuck a pitch past Carlos Beltran to strike him out swinging.

The Dodgers and Washington will meet at Nationals Park in Game 2 of the NL Division Series, then fly off to Los Angeles for Game 3 Monday. It was 90 degrees Thursday at the start of the series opener that was played under bright, sunny conditions.

Initially diagnosed as "right knee irritation", Travis's diagnosis was reevaluated as a bone bruise, according to trainer George Poulis. Its doubtful Texas manager Jeff Banister could say the same about Colby Lewis, who has lost all four of his decisions since he came back from an injury in early September.

Considering what's at stake in this series, I think every Blue Jays' fan would take a series win over a personal revenge moment for Bautista.

If Game 4 of the ALDS is necessary, it will be played Monday at Rogers Centre.
