Reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson singled on the next pitch, and Travis went all the way to third as left fielder Nolan Reimold bobbled the ball.Encarnacion sent the following pitch, a 91 mph offering, soaring into the second deck in left.

The teams brawled in May this year when Bautista was punched in the face by Rangers infielder Rougned Odor following a play at second base.Its going to be a very interesting series, and were looking forward to it, Encarnacion said.The roof was open at Rogers Centre, formerly SkyDome, where all 24 previous postseason games had been played with it closed.Bautista led off the second against Chris Tillman with his fifth postseason homer. Mark Trumbo, who led the major leagues with 47 home runs, gave Baltimore a 2-1 lead in the fourth with a two-run homer off Marcus Stroman.Ezequiel Carreras RBI single chased Tillman in the fifth.When Toronto pinch hitter Melvin Upton Jr. flied out to the warning track in left field to end the seventh, Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim was nearly struck by a can that was thrown from the stands. Center fielder Adam Jones angrily gestured toward the seats, and Showalter came out to register his displeasure with the umpires.Its tough when you have that many people in the ballpark and one person does something that reflects poorly on all of them, Showalter said. It can happen in any ballpark. I dont like anything that puts our guys in harms way.Blue Jays fans tossed bottles and debris on the field during Game 5 against Texas last year, upset at the call that let Odor score from third after catcher Russell Martins throw back to the mound deflected off?Shin-Soo Choos bat.Jones wasnt as diplomatic as his manager.That is about as pathetic as it gets, he said. I hope they find the guy and press charges.Blue Jays spokesman Erik Grosman said the fan was not ejected because he took off before police had a chance to get to him. Police are investigating.FOR STARTERSStroman allowed two runs and four hits in six innings, struck out six and walked none.
