The Texas Rangers scored a run on one of the wackiest plays in MLB history Wednesday, but it wasn't enough for them to prevail in the decisive game of the American League Divisional Series against Toronto.
The Blue Jays won 6-3 after Jose Bautista launched a three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh.
In the top of the seventh, the Rangers grabbed a 3-2 lead on this bizarre sequence: Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin's toss back to pitcher Aaron Sanchez hit Shin-Soo Choo's bat and squirted down the third base line. With the ball in play, Rougned Odor of the Rangers scored from third.
Umpires told Odor to go back to third, but then after discussing it, they allowed the run to count, which is the right call, according to MLB Rule 603(a)(3).
