Red Sox Take 2-1 Lead Over Rays on Christian Vazquez’s 13th-Inning Walk-Off

The opening weekend of playoff baseball told us one thing — there will be no easy road to the World Series. With eight teams left in the postseason field, all four divisional series are tight after 2-3 games. Every team has at least one win. And that usually breeds exciting series… Just ask the Red Sox. Here are the latest updates on the MLB Playoffs.


ALDS Gm 3: Red Sox def. Rays (6-4, 13 Innings)

The Red Sox and Rays went into extra innings at 4-4 before three scoreless frames led into the 13th, but that’s where it ended. A bizarre ground-rule double for the Rays saved Boston in the top of the 13th before the bottom of the inning where Christian Vazquez walked it off with a two-run homer. Kike Hernandez also hit two bombs for the Red Sox, and Boston has the edge over the top-seeded Rays. (BOS Leads Series 2-1)


ALDS Gm 3: White Sox def. Astros (12-6)

With their backs up against the wall facing a 2-0 series deficit, the White Sox pulled out the bats in Sunday’s Game 3 against the Astros. Chicago plated 12 runs on 16 hits in a win where 10 different players got on base. The White Sox were held to just five runs in the first two games combined. (HOU Leads Series 2-1)


NLDS Gm 2: Braves def. Brewers (3-0)

The Braves shut out the Brewers in Game 2 to even the series thanks to a gem from pitcher Max Fried and a solo homer from Austin Riley. Fried tossed six shutout frames with nine strikeouts as the series heads to Atlanta tonight. (Series Tied 1-1)


NLDS Gm 2: Dodgers def. Giants (9-2)

The Dodgers bounced back from a shutout in Game 1 to blow past the Giants in Game 2. Chris Taylor, the Wild Card walk-off hero, held the big bat once again with two hits and three runs scored. The series moves back to L.A. tonight. (Series Tied 1-1)
