Tuesday could be the final Blue Jays game of the season, as Toronto takes on Baltimore in the wild-card game to advance to the American League Division Series.
The Jays will enjoy home field advantage at Rogers Centre for the one-game playoff, after winning more games against the Orioles in the regular season 10-9.
If the Jays beat the Orioles, they’ll face the Texas Rangers in a rematch of last year’s series which Toronto won in 5 games. The Rangers are currently the top team in the league.
Bryan was supposed to see Jose Bautista’s now infamous bat flip, but had to miss the game because of work so he spent over $200 for two 500-level tickets to Tuesday’s game.
“Knowing the way the two teams play, there’s no way it’s going to be a low run game,” Bryan said. “They’re going to go all out, and I imagine there’s going to be a lot of long balls.”
Some nervous fans will be watching the action at local bars and restaurants like the Oar House.
General Manager Adam Meir knows it’ll be a fun but tense night for fans.
“I think it’ll be more tense than last year since this is the ‘win or go home’ game, so we have cheap appetizers and cheap bottles of Red Stripe, so I think our kitchen is going to be running, and I think all my staff are going to be running around too when the game is on,” said Meir.
The Blue Jays are sending Marcus Stroman to the mound against the Orioles’ Chris Tillman.
The game starts at 8p.m., but the action begins right here on AM980 at 7p.m. with the pre-game show.
