Thurs. A.M. Hot Clicks: Brionna Wesson; Mini Bautista Powers Jays
Little Jose Bautista Powers Jays
In one of the strangest baseball games ever, Jose Bautista hit a three-run home run to lead the Blue Jays to a 6-3 victory in Game 5 over the Rangers. The game will be remembered for two things: Bautista's bat flip and the freak way in which Texas took a 3-2 lead. But, as Tiffany Oshinsky explains in the above video, the Jays had another weapon that helped spark them to victory. Meanwhile in Kansas City, the Royals disposed of the Astros and this little kid got obliterated during the victory celebration.
One Way To Celebrate a WNBA Title
Sylvia Fowlkes scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Minnesota Lynx captured their third WNBA title Thursday night with a 69-52 victory over the Indiana Fever. Maya Moore was held to just five points but did hit the game-winner in Game 3 (which you should watch right now if you haven't already), so she gets a pass. After the game, the Lynx went to Prince's house and partied all night. Insert Rick James joke here.
