Astros manager AJ Hinch says he will remove his team from the field if fans at Yankee Stadium again throw objects at Houston players.
Giancarlo Stanton remained out of the New York Yankees lineup for the third straight game and Aaron Hicks was moved up to third in the batting order for Game 4 of the AL Championship Series against the Houston Astros on Thursday night.
Rough as things were when Washington was 19-31 and people were wondering whether Nationals manager Dave Martinez was in over his head and might get fired, he never wavered. Just as important, neither did the support he received from GM Mike Rizzo and team ownership.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone wasn’t sure Wednesday what his lineup for the next day’s Game 4 of the AL Championship Series would look like. Gary Sanchez will be behind the plate, though – whether many in the Bronx want it that way or not.
From one corner of a sullen clubhouse came the glass half full view of the St. Louis Cardinals’ season. “People did not think we were going to be here,” veteran pitcher Adam Wainwright said.
Game 4 of the AL Championship Series scheduled for Wednesday night has been postponed because of rain in the forecast. The Houston Astros and New York Yankees will play Game 4 on Thursday night instead, with Game 5 on Friday at Yankee Stadium and Game 6 in Houston on Saturday if necessary.
A year after suspicions on sign stealing made headlines when a man associated with the Astros was caught pointing a cellphone into opposing dugouts, Houston is giving pitchers pause again, perhaps with nothing more than the naked eye.
Mike Shildt took the ball from Dakota Hudson and patted him on the back of the neck. Hudson was out of the game after recording one out on 15 pitches against eight Washington Nationals batters, and the St. Louis Cardinals were on the receiving end of what they did to the Atlanta Braves in the last round.
Washington is heading to the World Series for the first time in 86 years after the wild-card Nationals used a seven-run first inning and Patrick Corbin’s 12-strikeout performance to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-4 and sweep the NL Championship Series.
Houston Astros right fielder Josh Reddick called out Yankees fans for tossing water bottles, baseballs and other objects on the field during New York’s 4-1 loss in the AL Championship Series on Tuesday night.
A gritty Gerrit Cole held the New York Yankees scoreless without his sharpest stuff, Jose Altuve sparked Houston at the plate and the Astros locked down a 4-1 victory to take a 2-1 lead in the AL Championship Series.
Even on a team with three stars in the starting rotation, Gerrit Cole has stood out in these playoffs.
Of course, the Yankees are the Bronx Bombers. Turns out this group is filled with fancy fielders, too. “I don’t think they want the attention,” catcher Austin Romine said Thursday. “You got a bunch of guys that go out there and play good defense, and it’s just now getting noticed.”
A curse-filled clubhouse victory speech by St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shildt that went viral after a player posted it on social media showed a different side to the usually mild-mannered skipper – and while he was sorry Thursday that his colorful language got leaked, he did not feel bad about the gist of his message.
It’s back to the drawing board – again – for the Los Angeles Dodgers, whose World Series title drought now extends to 31 years. This time, they didn’t even make it that far.
One day later, Brian Snitker had shed his uniform but was still wearing the pain of yet another one-and-done postseason exit for the Atlanta Braves. “It’s going to take me a while to kind of get over this whole thing,” the manager said Thursday.
Eric Sogard homered in the first at-bat of his first start this postseason for Tampa Bay, going deep in the decisive Game 5 of the AL Division Series at Houston on Thursday night.
With the top teams out of the mix, it’s on to a most unlikely matchup in the NL Championship Series. The St. Louis Cardinals are back in the NLCS for the first time since 2014 after a stunner of an inning in Atlanta. They’ll face the Washington Nationals, who dispatched their playoff demons with an upset of the 106-win Dodgers.
Aaron Hicks is an option to start for the New York Yankees in the AL Championship Series opener and CC Sabathia also remains in contention for a roster spot.
