Houston Astros finish off Chicago White Sox to reach 5th straight ALCS as Tony La Russa fumes over ‘intentional’ Jose Abreu plunking

The Houston Astros advanced to their fifth consecutive American League Championship Series on Tuesday by defeating the Chicago White Sox 10-1 in Game 4 of their best-of-five division series matchup. The Astros are the third team ever to appear in five consecutive league championship series, and first to do so since the Atlanta Braves reached eight straight from 1991 to 1999. For the second time in five days, Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. held the White Sox’s offense in check, giving up just a solo home run, to designated hitter Gavin Sheets, in the second inning.

Cody Bellinger evokes 2019 MVP prowess with 2-run double in Dodgers’ Game 2 win

For a brief, fleeting moment — the amount of time it took Giants reliever Dominic Leone’s sixth-inning fastball to travel from his hand to the plate — Cody Bellinger looked like the guy who was the 2019 National League MVP. Bellinger was balanced and quick, two elements of successful hitting that have eluded him all season. The result was a two-run double to left-center that put the Dodgers ahead 4-1 and set the stage for what became a 9-2 victory in Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Saturday. Bellinger hit .165 with a .542 OPS this season, unfathomably bad numbers for a player who […]
