Blue Jays have to pick up pace in tight WC race

eAwaz Sports News

TORONTO – Two games in, the biggest series of the Blue Jays’ season isn’t feeling like it. Tuesday night’s 6-3 loss flipped the American League Wild Card standings yet again, sending Texas into second place with Toronto now a half-game back in the third spot. The Rangers also clinched the season series between these clubs, which could be a major hurdle for the Blue Jays in a tight race down to the wire. “It’s going to be a battle. It’s going to be a grind,” manager John Schneider said. “We have to control what we can and try to pile up the wins. It’s going to go right down to the end.”
