August 26 – a beautiful summer day in Toronto. A perfect day in fact, to watch the boys of summer play baseball at the Rogers Centre.
And it was definitely a Plan B* game for the Toronto Blue Jays. They had dropped their game with the Minnesota Twins the previous night, 6 – 1. Sitting in last place in their division, Toronto needed a win.
Despite the Blue Jays standing in the league, Toronto fans of all ages were out in force to cheer on their team.
The home town fans were not disappointed. Whatever changes the Blue Jays had made overnight worked. They racked up 10 runs on 13 hits.
The Minnesota Twins did not easily go down to defeat. They kept the crowd in anxious suspense until the very end. They answered the Jays with two runs at the top of the 9th inning. The Twins finally came up short however, with 9 runs.
Final score: Toronto 10 – Minnesota 9.
Plan B* baseball. It doesn’t get more exciting than this.
