Entering the American League Championship Series, Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Texas Rangers, and Kansas City Royals the Houston Astros; the two winning teams will battle in the best-of-seven games. As a Canada-based baseball team, the Blue Jays are cheered on and supported by an entire nation, which became evident when Jose Bautista's bat flip, after hitting a game-winning homer in Game 5, started trending on Twitter under the hashtag #ComeTogether.
For those who missed the teams' matches in the regular season, it's important to note that Royals starting pitcher Edinson Volquez hit Josh Donaldson with a pitch and nearly hit him again in a second pitch. Moreover, Volquez called Donaldson "a little baby." The rivalry from previous match will definitely play out tonight. Both teams will attempt to start the series strong in order to set the tone for the best-of-seven series.
As for rotation, the Blue Jays are starting pitcher Marco Estrada in Game 1, David Price in Game 2, Marcus Stroman in Game 3, and R.A. Dickney in Game four, with the first three getting second starts. On the other hand, the Royals will start with Volquez, followed by Yordano Ventura, Johnny Cueto, and possibly Kris Medlen if not Chris Young.
