Munenori Kawasaki has won the hearts of many… and even a few ball games to boot. Everyone remembers the home game earlier in the season against the Baltimore Orioles, in which the Blue Jays were down 5-2 in the 9th inning, and Kawasaki came to the plate to drill a walk-off double to win the game.  And let’s not forget the post-game interview he delivered as well… Forever immortalized on the internet, it will live on for generations for all to enjoy. Fast forward to Wednesday night’s game.  Esmil Rogers throws a fantastic 6IP, 1R, 1ER, 7K outing, leaving with the Cleveland Indians ahead 1-0 in the 7th.  The Blue Jays muster up some runs to get ahead 2-1, but the Indians never give up, and club their way back to lock the game up at 2.  The score will stay like this until the top of the 9th, with 2 outs.  Bases loaded, he clears them with a double and the crowd goes wild.
