Los Angeles Dodgers take game 1 of World Series

Going into his Game 1 World Series start for the Los Angeles Dodgers versus the Tampa Bay Rays in Arlington, Texas, Kershaw’s pedestrian 11-12 career playoff record and 4.31 ERA is nearly two full runs worse than his 2.43 career ERA and unheard of 175-76 record. His career 5.40 World Series ERA in five prior starts and his October struggles follow Kershaw 12 months a year every year, and will until the future Hall Of Fame lefty exorcises his playoff demons. It didn’t matter that the 32-year-old winner of three Cy Young Awards, one MVP and five league ERA titles […]

Tampa Bay reached World series after defeating Houston Astros

The Tampa Bay Rays clinched the American League pennant with a triumph over the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the ALCS on Saturday night (TB 4, HOU 2). Tampa led the series 3-0, but the Astros forced Game 7 with wins in Games 4, 5, and 6. The 2004 Red Sox can pop the champagne. They are still the only team in MLB history to come back from a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series. Charlie Morton shut down his former team in Game 7, holding the Astros scoreless through 5 2/3 innings before giving way to the bullpen. […]

McGregor states he will fight Poirier on Jan. 23

It appears Conor McGregor is OK waiting until 2021 for his next UFC fight. On Wednesday, UFC president Dana White told ESPN, the promotion’s broadcast partner, that he wouldn’t give McGregor a 2020 date as wanted for a potential rematch with Dustin Poirier. Instead, the UFC offered McGregor a Jan. 23 date as a take-it-or-leave-it situation. “We offered him a fight. We got him his own date,” White said Wednesday. “We didn’t have a date this year. We have everything laid out for this year, with world champions fighting for titles. He wants to fight Dustin Poirier apparently, so we went to (broadcast partner) […]

Tampa Bay Rays take game 2 against Astros, lead 2-0

Two games in a row now, the difference in the Tampa Bay Rays defeating the Houston Astros in the ALCS has come down to one play. The Rays, as anybody who has watched them this campaign know, make plays. The Astros, in what sealed their fate in Game 2 on Monday, did not. One play — one throw in fact — was what spelled defeat for the Astros this time. Jose Altuve shorted a throw to first base in the first inning. Yuli Gurriel couldn’t dig it out. An easy third out turned into another opportunity for the Rays with two runners on base. And […]

Tampa Bay Rays rely on bullpen depth in another one-run win to open ALCS

After his team locked up yet another one-run victory by beating the Houston Astros 2-1 in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Sunday, Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash wouldn’t attribute that success to anything but bullpen depth. “Our analytical guys might think they’re lucky or fluky, but, no, I don’t think that,” Cash said after the Rays improved to 16-5 in one-run games this season, including the playoffs. That .762 winning percentage in such contests is the best of any team in baseball history, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. After the Rays overcame an early 1-0 deficit, Tampa Bay […]

CB Prince Amukamara has deal with Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have an agreement in place to sign free-agent cornerback Prince Amukamara pending the results of his COVID-19 testing, a source told ESPN’s Dan Graziano. It’s not likely Amukamara, who lives in the Phoenix area, will join the team for this weekend’s match in New York versus the Jets, but he potentially could play in Arizona’s Week 6 game on Monday Night Football at the Dallas Cowboys. The veteran cornerback will give the Cardinals depth as Dre Kirkpatrick, whom the Cardinals’ signed on Aug. 23 in the aftermath of Robert Alford’s season-ending pec injury, deals with a calf injury. He has been limited in practice the […]

Tom Brady leads Tampa Bay Buccaneers to big comeback

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady overcame a first-half pick-six and a 17-point deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers  38-31 on Sunday, giving him the fifth-largest comeback in his career. It also was the Bucs’ second-largest comeback in franchise history, behind a 21-point rally versus the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008. For the 43-year-old Brady, it was his biggest comeback since overcoming a 28-3 deficit in Super Bowl LI versus the Atlanta Falcons — a setting that was a far cry from the select group of 6,383 fans and family members who got their first glimpse of Brady in person this campaign. He finished 30-of-46 for 369 passing yards, […]
