TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays are returning to the post-season.
Toronto secured an American League playoff spot when the visiting Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 6-1 tonight.
The Blue Jays dropped a 7-5 decision in 10 innings to Tampa Bay earlier in the day, but secured a wild-card berth with the Mariners' loss.
Toronto will be on the road for a best-of-three wild-card series starting Tuesday against either the Minnesota Twins or Tampa Bay Rays.
The Rays have already secured the first of three wild-card spots in the American League.
The Blue Jays were swept in the wild-card round last year and in 2020.
