MLB: World Series-Atlanta Braves at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Here’s what you need to know as you start your day.

In playoff news...

  • Blowout wins have been the theme of this year’s playoffs and last night was no different. José Urquidy held the red-hot Atlanta bats in check to help the Astros to a series-tying 7-2 victory yesterday. The two teams are off today and will resume the series in Atlanta tomorrow.

In Mariners news...

  • The fun times never stop at High Performance Camp.
  • Sam Carlson told his story in this neat feature. The right-hander is one of many minor leaguers who could be taken in the Rule 5 if the team chooses not to add him to the 40-man.
  • Congratulations to Logan and his fiancée!
  • High Performance Camp is about more than playing baseball.
  • Another M’s prospect will be making some noise this fall.

Around the league...

  • Congratulations to this beloved former Mariner!
  • This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise; most top pitching prospects have already hit their innings cap so you’re bound to see more top hitters at the AFL.
