The Blue Jays have won all four of their playoff games in 2016. They
defeated the Baltimore Orioles in the wild card game and then swept the
Texas Rangers in the Division Series. The Jays were averaging just 3.7
runs per game from September to the end of the regular season. In the
playoffs their offense has come to life. Their 22 runs scored versus
Texas were the fourth-most by a team in a sweep. They produced eight
home runs from seven different players, which tied a divisional series
As for the Indians, they were equally impressive in their sweep of
the Boston Red Sox, but for different reasons. Their pitching stood out
despite the absence of injured starters Carlos Carrasco and Danny
Salazar. They also held the most productive offense in the American
League to just seven runs in three games.
The Jays and Indians teams met seven times in the regular season, and the Indians won four of the seven games.
