Spectator throws can at Kim during wild card game

TORONTO (AP) " A spectator threw a can at Baltimore Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim during the seventh inning of Tuesday's AL wild card game.

With the score tied 2-2, pinch hitter Melvin Upton Jr. flied out to the track in left. Kim made the catch despite the can narrowly missing him as it came out of the stands behind him.

Center fielder Adam Jones gestured toward the seats, and manager Buck Showalter came out to register his displeasure with the umpires.

It was not immediately known whether the fan was ejected.

Blue Jays fans tossed bottles and debris on the field during Game 5 of last year's AL Division Series against Texas, upset by the call that let Rougned Odor score from third after catcher Russell Martin's throw back to the mound deflected off Shin Soo Choo's bat.

A Blue Jays fan threw a drink at Orioles outfielder Nate McLouth during a game at Rogers Centre in May 2013.
