It’s do or die time in Toronto.
Despite a dominant performance in Game 3, the Blue Jays staged one of their worst postseason performances in Game 4 and, now, are standing on the brink of elimination as the Kansas City Royals look to clinch a World Series berth for the second straight season.
No, pressure or anything.
Marco Estrada returns to the mound for his second ALCS start. The right-hander gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings of work in Game 1 and is 1-1 during the Jays playoff run.
Then, there’s Edinson Volquez. The Royals standout threw six scoreless innings in Game 1, giving up just two hits and, despite recording eight walks in 11 2/3 postseason innings, Volquez has given up just three runs in two starts.
It’s going to get dramatic. It’s going to get exciting. It is, after all, October. First pitch for the Game 5 matchup is slated for 4:07 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally in the United Stats on FS1 and on SNET in Canada. No TV? No problem. Here’s how to watch online and on mobile:
