Astros remain alive in ALCS/Braves return the favor to the Dodgers

Astros remain alive in ALCS/Braves return the favor to the Dodgers”

With a World Series berth on the line, the 2017 Major League Baseball champion Astros showed again they won't go quietly, fending off elimination as they trimmed the deficit in the best-of-seven series to 3-2.

But Tampa Bay couldn't build on that in the top of the ninth and Correa delivered the knockout blow in the bottom of the final frame.

Yesterday's game could have been taken by the Rays.

"Anderson is a great pitcher and I don't mean no disrespect when I call my shot", Correa said. "We have to get the bats going".

George Springer led off the game with a home run for Houston. Randy Arozarena and Brandon Lowe also went yard for Tampa Bay in defeat.

Ozuna went four-for-five with four RBIs for the Braves, who can close out the series on Friday.

Clayton Kershaw can't shake his post-season curse, not even in a neutral-site for the MLB National League Championship Series.

"This morning I was a little nervous".

In the American League Division Series, the A's watched three Carlos Correa flyballs land over the fence, as he dominated the series and Houston took down Oakland and advanced to the Championship Series.

The Clayton Kershaw playoff narrative isn't going away, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and his bullpen didn't help the cause Thursday night.

Freddie Freeman then put the Braves ahead with a double that scored Acuna. Marcell Ozuna homered twice for the Braves. Curtiss was charged with one run on one hit in 1 1/3 innings with one walk and two strikeouts.

The Dodgers turned to reliever Victor Gonzalez, who gave up a single to Cristian Pache that scored Riley.

The Dodgers have been so hot and cold during this series, especially during game four.

In the NLCS, the LA Dodgers are taking on the Atlanta Braves, but aren't able to find a lot of success.
