BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — One win down, several more to go.
The Toronto Blue Jays played their first 2020 MLB game in Buffalo Tuesday night, beating the Miami Marlins 5-4 in 10 innings. It was the first MLB game to be played in The Queen City in more than 100 years.
With the game tied 4-4 in the 10th, Travis Shaw singled in the winning run. Bo Bichette, who played at Sahlen Field as a member of last year's Buffalo Bisons team, hit a three-run homer in the 6th inning to put the Bisons up 4-1 at the time.
While fans weren't able to watch the game from inside the stadium, several cardboard cutouts were placed behind and surrounding home plate.
But there were several fans who found a small grassed space beyond the left center field wall.
