Red Sox top Rays, close ALDS

After winning Game 1 rather convincingly, the Tampa Bay Rays are the first team eliminated from the divisional round.

The Red Sox closed the doors in front of Fenway worshipers on Monday night. He was still a savage.

The Red Sox had a 5-0 lead in the third inning while starter Eduardo Rodriguez threw zeros on the board in five innings. It sounded pretty basic, but the Rays Relievers’ box after the third remained stable and Tampa’s offense eroded. A two-run homerun from Wander Franco made it 5-3 in the sixth. In the eighth, two doubles before a Randy Arozarena single meant the game was tied. Red Sox reliever Garrett Whitlock would come in to get major strikeouts to move things to the bottom of the ninth, still tied at five.

Late in the ninth, perhaps rightly so, red Enrique Hernández delivered the winning fly bag, giving Boston a 6-5 win and the club’s second straight win.

The Red Sox offense beat the Rays – who had the AL’s best ERA in the regular season – for 26 points on 47 hits in the last three games of the series, all Red Sox win. They are now waiting for either the Astros or the White Sox in the ALCS.

Here’s more on the Red Sox taking down the Rays.

Brave now a win away from NLCS

The Atlanta Braves defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 3-0 on Monday in Game 3 of their best-of-five National League division series. The Braves now hold a 2-1 advantage, meaning another win will send them to the NL Championship Series, where they would await the San Francisco Giants or Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Braves received another good outing from their pitching staff, as they had in each of the first two games of the series. Starter Ian Anderson had five shutouts, limiting the Brewers to three hits and no walks. He struck out six batters on 84 pitches before being relieved for batter Joc Pederson.

The move paid off for the Braves, as Pederson threw a three-point shot at Brewers reliever Adrian Houser to give Atlanta their lead:

The Braves’ pen, which tends to make things interesting, subsequently shut down the Milwaukee bats. Jesse Chavez, Tyler Matzek, Luke Jackson and Will Smith instead combined to pitch four white innings with minimal drama.

One more effort from its pitching staff, and Atlanta will head to its second straight NLCS.
