    BOSTON (AP) — Houston’s pitching staff will need to adjust quickly after allowing 25 runs and 32 hits to Boston in the first three games of the AL Championship Series, a barrage that made the loss of injured Lance McCullers Jr. seem acute. Kyle Schwarber hit Boston’s third grand slam in an 11-inning span, a drive off starter José Urquidy as part of a six-run second inning in Monday night’s 12-3 rout, which gave the Red Sox a 2-1 series lead. Boston hit four home runs, raising the total to nine off Astros pitching, which has a 7.96 ERA. Urquidy, pitching on 14 days’ rest, lasted just 1 2/3 innings. The Astros’ bullpen has pitched 15 1/3 innings in the last two games, and manager Dusty Baker figures to need to go to relievers early once again in Game 4 on Tuesday night. Luis Garcia’s early exit from Game 2 forced Baker to use projected Game 4 starter Jake Odorizzi for four innings of relief, taking him out of the mix to get the ball Tuesday. Zack Greinke will start...
    Savannah Guthrie Reveals How Her Kids Stay Busy as She Anchors from Her Work from Home Bureau Is It Time to Sell Your Home? 6 Things to Consider © Provided by Sports Illustrated There's not much else to say about Shohei Ohtani's greatness, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth saying again anyway. MLB needs to get Shohei Ohtani on that Field of Dreams. He is clearly baseball's Most Valuable Player. This obviously goes for the American League as well, given he should win that award unanimously.  It’s a testament to how good Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has been that that was even a conversation until recently, but what Ohtani is doing is beyond comparison, even when it comes to Babe Ruth.  To put it simply...the man has 40 home runs and a 2.79 ERA. Let me say that again because it is kind of hard to comprehend. The man has 40 home runs and a 2.79 ERA. And he just went yard to add to his Major League-leading total in the same game that he struck out 8.  It’s...

They will hook up Monday in a Miami ballpark that has had the fewest home runs hit per game of any in MLB this season. The Mets will send the youngest starter in their rotation, Tylor Megill, to the mound. He has impressed in seven starts thus far, with a 2.04 ERA and 9.9 strikeouts per nine innings. He has surrendered just three runs in his past five starts. The Marlins traded their top home-run hitter, Adam Duvall, at the deadline, which leaves them with two active players who entered Sunday with more than five home runs this season. Jazz Chisholm was the only one with more than three home runs in Miami. The Marlins have been solid out...

The San Francisco Giants and Philadelphia Phillies have both overcome being in the bottom 10 of the MLB in runs per game to be at or above .500 entering the week, as each will look to get good pitching performances to keep things going on Monday. Giants starter Kevin Gausman has just a 3-3 record since signing with the team prior to the 2020 season, but is giving up just 1.1 home runs and 6.9 hits per nine innings while striking out 11 batters per nine innings. Meanwhile Chase Anderson is looking to recapture the form he had with the Milwaukee Brewers as he went 29-16 with a 3.63 ERA between the 2017-19 seasons while allowing just 7.6 hits per nine innings. He posted a 7.22 ERA with 12 hits surrendered per nine innings in 10 appearances for the Toronto Blue...

    Injuries limited Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Merrill Kelly to just five starts in 2020, but two of those were victories over the San Diego Padres, who will look for revenge on Friday with their new acquisition Blake Snell making his debut. Kelly gave up just one run and two walks across 12 ²/₃ innings in his two starts against the Padres last season. He pitched at least five innings in each of his starts and lasted at least six innings in four of the five. With the Rays, Snell did not complete six full innings in any of his 17 total starts between the regular season and playoffs. He did average 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings and surrendered more than three runs just twice with a 3.16 ERA, but did give up 1.69 home runs per nine innings. Snell is backed up by a bullpen that last season ranked eighth in ERA at home with a 3.57 with an opponent’s batting average of .210, and faces a Diamondbacks bunch that rated 27th in the majors in runs per game on...
    The World Series is tied 1-1 and on Friday, that deadlock will be broken by a pair of pitchers who have not gone very deep into starts, but have been solid at keeping the ball in the yard. The Tampa Bay Rays’ Charlie Morton has pitched a combined 15²/₃ innings in his three starts this postseason with two total runs surrendered, one of which was earned, and has not given up a home run. Walker Buehler gets the ball for the Los Angeles Dodgers having gone a combined 19 innings in four starts with four total runs and two home runs surrendered. He showed great command in his most recent start. After walking 11 in his previous three outings, Buehler went six strong innings against the Atlanta Braves and gave up neither a walk nor an earned run in a crucial NLCS Game 6 win. Buehler’s swing-and-miss stuff is an important factor as he faces the only lineup that at the plate this season averaged more than 10 strikeouts per game, while he has struck out an average of...

    Two teams that are starving for a World Series championship will hook up for Game 1 on Tuesday in Arlington, Texas, as the Tampa Bay Rays look for the franchise’s first title while the Dodgers haven’t lifted the trophy since 1988. The Rays will give the ball to Tyler Glasnow, who has been terrific at getting swings and misses with 13.4 strikeouts per nine innings, but also has been prone to giving up the deep ball, allowing two home runs per nine innings. He has the task of going up against a Dodgers team that already has played two series in Arlington, giving the hitters an idea of the dimensions of the ballpark. The Dodgers led the majors in both runs and home runs in the 60-game regular season and have scored at least three runs in 20 of their last 22 games. Glasnow will face Clayton Kershaw, whose career playoff ERA is more than a point and a half-point higher than during the regular season and has ballooned even more in the World Series. He has a lifetime ERA...
    While the San Diego Padres lead the National League in home runs hit, they also have the pitcher who has served up the most home runs in the NL, Chris Paddack, who will be pitching Saturday at Oakland. For Paddack, the 4.43 ERA and 1.7 walks issued per nine innings have been solid, but the home runs allowed have caused each of his past four starts to go Over the total. The Athletics’ Sean Manaea has given up three runs or fewer in his past three starts and five walks this entire season, but he’s allowing 11.3 hits per nine innings. San Diego leads MLB with 5.69 runs per game and percentage of at-bats that result in a home run. The Athletics are 26th in batting average, but when they do get hits, they do damage, ranking third in most runs generated per hit. Manaea has had of his five starts in August go Over the total, so there should be a bunch of hard-hit balls to help this trend continue. The play: Padres-Athletics total, Over 8¹/₂ runs.

    The Rays have had the Yankees’ number this season, going 7-0, and will try to hand ace Gerrit Cole his second straight losing decision on Monday. Tyler Glasnow will get the start for Tampa Bay and has been rounding into form after a rough start to 2020. He is striking out 15.4 batters per nine innings and has allowed two runs in each of his past two starts after giving up 11 total in his three prior starts. Cole has been hurt by the long ball this season, leading MLB in home runs allowed (10, tied with the Padres’ Chris Paddack) and in total of hits allowed that are HRs (32.2 percent). Despite that, he has posted a 3.51 ERA and is dishing out 11.6 strikeouts to just 1.8 walks per nine innings. The Yankees have DJ LeMahieu back from the injured list, but are still missing Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres, among a plethora of injuries. With both pitchers generating a bunch of swings-and-misses, Monday’s tilt sets up for runs being at a premium. THE PLAY:...
