Last Chance for the Blue Jays: MLB ALCS OddsPublished October 18, 2016 by Sol FH
The Blue Jays are down 0-3 and need a win to hold on to their World Series hopes. Can they overcome the Cleveland Indians tonight at 21:00 GMT.
After the Blue Jays swept the Rangers in the first round of the 2016 MLB post season, it looked like they were on a roll and that they were the favorites going into the Championship Series against the Indians. Game 1 could have gone either way, but the Cleveland go the win 2-0. In Game 2, things looked a lot better for the Jays, but they lost 2-1. Last night in Game 3, they were tied 2-2 until the 6th inning when the Indians scored 2 runs and the game ended 4-2 and left Toronto in a big hole that they may not be able to come back from.
The biggest problem for the Blue Jays right now is their inconsistent offense. The bats are not hitting the balls even with such a wide array of power hitters like Encarnacion, Donaldson, Bautista and company. The defense on both sides has been amazing and pitching has also been excellent on both sides.
Tonight, the Indians are going with their big right-hander Corey Kluber, while the Jays are throwing Aaron Sanchez, another rightie to the mound. The Jays are way down and tonight could be their last chance to save their World Series dreams, after making it last year, but coming up short.
