Blue Jays overcome fickle fate to earn sweep vs Mariners.
One of the best things about baseball is that bizarre things happen almost daily. Over the long run it can be projected to some extent, but over a nine inning span forecasting it is pure folly.
The Toronto Blue Jays found themselves at the mercy of some bizarre fortune, but got the better of it in a 3-2 walk-off win over the Seattle Mariners to earn a four-game sweep.
With the game deadlocked at two in the ninth, Kevin Pillar stepped to the plate with two out and none on with Mariners closer Edwin Diaz to contend with. Pillar took two sliders away before Diaz left inside. Pillar turned on the breaking ball with a massive crack of the bat that laid a ball to rest over the left field wall.
