Wednesday October 14th, 2015

Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista capped a wild inning in Game 5 of the ALDS against the Rangers with a massive three-run homer. 

In the top of the seventh inning, a controversial call created a tense environment. The bottom of the seventh started with three straight errors and a fourth error allowed the Blue Jays to score the tying run. 

Bautista came to the plate with the game tied 3–3 and smashed a long home run to deep leftfield. 

​Bautista stared down Texas pitcher Sam Dyson and tossed his bat away emphatically, prompting players from both dugouts to spill out onto the field. 


During the on-field confrontation, the Toronto fans began throwing beer cans and other trash from the stands.

The inning took a total of 53 minutes to complete.
