4-run 10th by Nationals spoils Blue Jays' 'home opener'

'OK Blue Jays,' Toronto's traditional seventh-inning stretch staple, was even played during the game in Washington.

In a quirky game befitting this pandemic-altered, upside-down season, Toronto’s team played its “home opener” at Washington -- batting in the bottom half of each inning and even blaring the song “OK Blue Jays,” the club’s traditional seventh-inning stretch staple.

The Canadian government decided not to let baseball teams travel in and out of Toronto.
