Whew, it’s a good thing that the Blue Jays and Rangers aren’t in the same division, because they don’t need to be facing off very often.
The teams played a contentious playoff series last fall (punctuated by Jose Bautista’s epic bat flip), and there are a lot of angry people on both sides Sunday after the teams brawled.
The Rangers won 7-6 and you might think it was a TKO after you see the brouhaha that broke out in the eighth inning.
Never miss a local story.
Bautista’s slide into second base was late and hard. That upset Texas’ Rougned Odor. The two got into it and Odor landed a hard punch.
Both benches cleared after the fisticuffs started.
Bautista didn’t make any friends in Kansas City during the American League Championship Series after pretending to give a ball to a fan then pulling it back.
Still, I don’t think he deserved that punch from Odor. Bautista was probably upset about being hit by a pitch earlier in the inning.
