The good news, the Toronto Blue Jays crushed the Baltimore Orioles yesterday 12-4.

The Jays finished the season with 262 home runs.

Springer had three hits and five RBIs.

Hernandez had three RBIs.

Oriole's Tyler Nevin homered at the top of the third inning.

Baltimore's Austin Hays scored on a sacrifice fly and also had a RBI single.

Jay's starting pitcher, Hyun-Jin Ryu had another solid outing.

Ryu pitched five innings, allowed just two earned runs and struck out seven batters.

Oriole's starting pitcher, Bruce Zimmerman gave up five hits in 0.2 innings.

At the postgame press conference, Jay's manager, Charlie Montoyo and several Blue Jays players reflected on this past season.

"I'm so proud of this team overcoming all the obstacles" said Montoyo.

"I'm really proud of everybody for how we finished," said Jay's shortstop, Bo Bichette.

The Jays finished the season with a 91-71 record.

There you have it.
