  • Rangers down 2-0 facing ALDS elimination after aces struggle

    Happ and the Blue Jays ahead to stay. Leading off the inning, Pillar got ahead 2-0, fouled off a pitch, then tomahawked the next pitch up around his eyes, down the left-field line and into the bleachers for a solo homer. But heading into Game 2 at midday on Friday, the thought among the Ranger faithful was that a Darvish start, his first in the postseason since 2012, would be the cure for all that ailed Texas after the drubbing the Rangers took in Game 1.

  • Blue Jays take opener

    I've never been a big fan of Jose Bautista, but after Game 5 of the American League Division series past year, I can't stand him or that bat flip of his. Not only did those two balls go off of gloves in the third inning, but on Tulowitzki's bases clearing triple, centre fielder Ian Desmond seemed to have lost track of where the fence was, and pulled up early when it looked like he could have made the catch fairly easily.

"Buck's in a tough spot, " New York Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters before his team's National League wild-card matchup with?

    Talib reportedly told police that he did not remember how the shooting occurred because "everything was a blur and I was too intoxicated to remember what happened".
