To say Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista displayed emotion after this massive home run would be the understatement of the century.
By Robby Sabo
There’s only three tiny letters to describe what just happened in the seventh-inning of Game 5 of the ALDS between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers.
While the word itself is small in stature, the meaning couldn’t be more spot on. First, the Rangers grabbed a slim 3-2 lead in the top of the frame after Russell Martin’s throwback to the pitcher hit the bat of Shin-Soo Choo.
All madness broke out after the ruling of a Rangers run scored was held up. The Jays were frustrated, as were the fans. They all felt as if they were robbed.
But then, the bottom of the inning provided something even crazier.
After the Jays tied it up, slugger Jose Bautista hit a massive three-run shot off reliever Sam Dyson. This prompted enough emotion out of Bautista which could equal that of an Oprah Winfrey guest.
He flipped the bat, stared at the pitcher, and emphatically jumped out of the box. How the Rangers didn’t come flying out of the dugout after that display, I’ll never know.
Both teams met up in the field after the inning, however, after Dyson (for some strange reason) went up to Troy Tulowitzki and had a few words for the shortstop.
The game plays on in the top of the eighth-inning with the Jays holding a 6-3 lead.[su_button url=”https://elitesportsny.com/2015/10/13/new-york-giants-is-eli-manning-a-legitimate-mvp-candidate/” target=”blank” background=”#000080″ size=”10″ wide=”yes” center=”yes” radius=”0″]NEXT: Manning A Legit MVP Candidate?[/su_button]
