Blue Jays capitalize on 3 Royals wild pitches in come back victory

The nearly impossible happened at the Rogers Centre on Sunday in a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals.

The Blue Jays, who are in the midst of a race for an American League Wild Card spot, were down 2-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning with two outs but were threatening. Royals pitcher Cole Ragans had already thrown a wild pitch to move the runners to second and third.

Toronto swept Kansas City and won their sixth game in their last seven and eight of their last 10. Toronto moved to 80-63 and have the second wild-card spot locked in if the season were to end today. They are one game up on the Seattle Mariners for the spot. The Mariners are a half-game up on the Texas Rangers.
