In playoff news...
- With a walk-off two-run home run in the 13th inning by catcher Christian Vazquez, the Boston Red Sox have taken a 2-1 lead in the ALDS. The Tampa Bay Rays were on pace to take the lead in the top of the 13th after a drive from Kevin Kiermaier to deep center, but the ball bounced off the wall and then hit Hunter Renfroe before ending up in the bullpen. Since the hit was ruled a ground-rule double, Yandy Diaz was held at third and no runs were scored.
- The Chicago White Sox avoid the sweep to take game three of their ALDS series against the Houston Astros in their first postseason victory at home since 2008.
