The string of consecutive post season wins was put to rest as they Royals pitching flopped in Game 3.
The Royals had won 9 straight ALCS games, but an 11-8 setback put the brakes on that and also put the Royals up just 1 game now in the series.
Kansas City can build off their resilience as they fought back the entire game and at least made Toronto burn through their bullpen as well. Kendrys Morales capped a 4 run 9th for the Royals with a 2 run blast, but that was as close as the Royals would get.
Kansas City will go with RH Chris Young in hopes of taking a commanding 3-1 series lead.
Young has made one postseason appearance as he pitched just 4.0 innings against Houston, allowing just 3 hits and 1 run while striking out 7.
The veteran RH hasn’t made a start since October 2nd.
The Blue Jays were a team on a mission Monday night. In a must win spot, the Jays bats came to life as they racked up 11 runs in the Game 3 win.
Toronto blasted three home runs from Troy Tulowitzki, Josh Donaldson, and Ryan Goins. Josh Donaldson led the way going 2 for 4 with 3 RBIs.
Toronto will send out RA Dickey who will try to even things up in this ALCS. Dickey had 1 postseason start in the ALDS.
Rickey finished with a line of just 4.2 innings and allowed 5 hits on just 1 run. Dickey struck out 3, but did not factor in the 8-5 winning decision.
The Blue Jays have played some of their best ball at home this season as they are 55-30 inside the Rogers Center.
