Reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson hit a huge grand slam to extend the Toronto Blue Jays‘ lead over the Boston Red Sox.
The Toronto Blue Jays crush home runs better than any other team in baseball and they have started the 2016 season off by crushing even more home runs and the dreams of their division rivals. With a big weekend series against the Boston Red Sox on tap, the Blue Jays took a big lead over their rival, courtesy of reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson.
With the Blue Jays holding just a slim one-run lead in the fourth inning up 3-2 and the bases loaded, Donaldson crushed a pitch right over the plate over the left field wall and the Blue Jays extended their advantage to five as the crowd in attendance went wild.
The strength of the Blue Jays is in their bats and that’s where they’re going to have to continue to produce if they’re going to win the AL East again this season. It’s clear that Donaldson’s big year wasn’t a one-time thing, as he’s already powering the Blue Jays with his bat again this year.
As for the Red Sox, it might have been better to go with a different option on the mound with the game slipping away.
