The two teams begin their best-of-five series for the American League division title against a background of tension. The players brawled during a game in May. Last year, during the final game of their battle for the division title, a bat flip  by the Jays’ José Bautista after a three-run homer aggravated the Rangers. The Blue Jays won the series.
This year’s series begins Thursday at 4:30 p.m. EDT in Arlington, Texas.
On campus, the Loyalist Lancers  women’s soccer team tied 2-2 against the Fleming Knights Wednesday night.
The Lancers men’s rugby team will also be facing off against Fleming this week. The team will play Thursday at 8 p.m. on the Loyalist College  field.
The college’s women’s rugby team has announced it will no longer be playing this year. Find out more here .
