Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a big ball in Wednesday’s game against the New York Yankees. The 23-year-old extra-class player brought the equalizer for the Canadian in the seventh episode of the duel held at Yankee Stadium. His long drive between left and center field allowed a comfortable score from third base by Jackie Bradley Jr.

The Canadian-Dominican went hitless in his first two at-bats against star Gerrit Cole, dropping his average to .275. Against the same thrower from the locals, he was at least able to carry the ball far to drive his teammate and thus allow Toronto to equalize.
This is a game of pure formality as both clubs have already decided their fate at the end of the regular season. The Yankees are seeded in the division series, while the Blue Jays will meet the Tampa Bay Rays in a wild card game that looks very interesting.
Guerrero Jr. had a very poor last week (27-5, five RBIs), while September was generally not much different for him (.237, 3 home runs, 12 RBIs).
In all, he hit 30 homers with 93 RBIs, and his offensive line is at .275/.335/.814.
It will be key for his team that his batting goes up a lot more for the game against Tampa Bay and in the next postseason contest if the Canadiens defeat the Floridians.
