Twins clinch 2nd straight playoff spot

Eddie Rosario, Miguel Sano and Josh Donaldson homered as the Minnesota Twins clinched a second consecutive postseason berth with an 8-1 triumph over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night. The Twins are guaranteed at least a wild-card berth. They trail the Chicago White Sox by three games in the AL Central with six games to play. The White Sox have eight games left. ”It’s special in there,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. ”You only get so many opportunities to earn something like that, to celebrate it. We’re going to celebrate every time we have the opportunity. The guys are ready. They’re just ready to see what comes next. […]

New York Yankees might miss the MLB playoffs they need to regroup soon

The fallout of the New York Yankees’ beating at the hands, bats and gloves of the Baltimore Orioles is one that appears to have started shifting the momentum in one direction, one in which the Bronx Bombers might be at risk of missing the MLB playoffs altogether. The Yankees accomplished 16 of their first 22 matches. Securing a spot in a 16-team expanded postseason was all but a given for a team that had hammered 40 home runs and slugged a robust .487 as a unit. New York was living up to its star billing, mowing down opponents by scoring an average of […]

Rockets vs. Thunder game 7

The story of the Thunder’s season has been their clutch play and it was on full display in Game 6. Paul scored 15 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter and made all the necessary plays to keep Oklahoma City’s campaign alive. Down six with 4:19 to go, Paul made back-to-back step-back 3s to tie the game. Given the amount of time left, if he misses just one of those shots it’s likely that Oklahoma City loses. Instead, a six-point deficit turned into another clutch victory, which is far from a surprise for a team that was 30-15 in […]

Cardinals win NL Central; Brewers settle for wild card

The Cardinals on Sunday needed a win over the Cubs at home or a Brewers loss to the Rockies to win the National League Central for 2019. As it turns out, St. Louis handled its own business, as they homered three times en route to a 9-0 win over the Cubs. Ace Jack Flaherty pitched seven shutout innings, which means he’s allowed a total of 12 runs over his last 16 starts heading into the playoffs. The St. Louis win means that the Cardinals will advance to the National League Division Series against the Braves, who won the NL East. Game 1 is scheduled for Oct. 3 in Atlanta. The Brewers, meantime, […]

Angels outlast Astros preventing Houston clinch

The Los Angeles Angels made nine pitching changes, including seven in a four-inning span. Those pitchers grinded and fought and managed to keep the mighty Astros scoreless when they loaded the bases three times in the final five innings. The Angels refused to play like a team with nothing to play for, and that’s why Houston’s celebration of the AL’s best record has to wait at least another day. ”Everybody did a fantastic job,” he added. ”We’re looking to finish strong. We’ve got to look forward for next year, so everybody has got to do their job and we’ve got to finish […]

Marlins look to finish off Mets’ playoff hopes

The Mets will try to do their part to avoid elimination from contention Tuesday night, when they host the Miami Marlins in the second game of a four-game series. Noah Syndergaard (10-8, 4.22 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for the Mets against the Marlins’ Sandy Alcantara (5-14, 4.00 ERA) in a battle of right-handers. The Marlins delivered a big blow to the Mets’ already meager wild-card hopes Monday night, when Jorge Alfaro hit two homers, including a grand slam, in Miami’s 8-4 victory. The Mets (81-75) fell five games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the race for the National League’s second wild card and 5 1/2 games […]
