Toronto broke open a close game by scoring four runs in the sixth inning of the American League Championship Series.

Royals starter Edinson Volquez issued a walk and hit a batter. Then came a battle with Jose Bautista, who walked on a very close 3-2 pitch. Edwin Encarnacion also walked on a close pitch and that forced in a run.

Fans were livid.
