The Royals will finally meet the New York Mets in the World Series on Tuesday night.

Joe Bautista gave the Blue Jays fans hope, when he hit two home runs in the top of the eighth inning, with these two runs he tied the game 3-3. After this, the game was suspended for 45 minutes as a result of bad weather.

After the game was resumed, Lorenzo Cain worked a leadoff walk from Blue Jays pitcher Roberto Osuna, and Eric Hosmer followed him with a single that Bautista, who didn’t notice Cain running at high speed towards home, threw to second base. Third base coach Mike Jirschele, who noticed all series that Bautista usually threw to second in those situations, was the brain behind this play. Cain made it home with a perfect slide, and the crowd became crazy at this point.

“As soon I saw him release the ball to second,” Jirschele said, “I had Lorenzo coming in.”

Then it was Wade Davis turn, who got the Royals out of a jam in the eighth, and now came back to finish the job.

He allowed a single to Russell Martin and walked Kevin Pillar, and then fanned pinch hitter Dioner Navarro. After this, players on the field managed to steal some bases, so there was one in third and the other in second base. Davis struck out Ben Revere and got Josh Donaldson on to third.

“At that point, it was about as bad as it could get, a man on third with no outs,” Davis pointed out. “Just hoping for some magic and get out of it.”

Well they sure have some magic left, Ben Zobrist and Mike Moustakas both hit home runs, and Alex Rios also drove in a run for Kansas City. It didn’t come as a surprise that shortstop Alcides Escobar was voted MVP after going 11-for-23 in the series.

The Blue Jays finished their own postseason drought dating to 1993. “They made a run at it,” Toronto manager John Gibbons said. “I really couldn’t be more proud of our guys. They laid it out every day. They’re great competitors and a fun bunch.”
