Rays Drop Game 4 to Astros - ESPN 98.1 FM

Sixth-inning implosion in Game 3 moves the Astros to the brink of elimination

The Astros' to-do list before Game 5 of the ALCS seemed a bit improbable: They had to beat the Rays again to stave off elimination. "This feels good, '" the shortstop said.

Even in a must-win situation, George Springer says that the message before the game was to just go out and play. "I said, 'Go ahead, man.' Then I said a prayer to my dad and my brother and say, 'Lord, please let us walk off.'".

In the ALCS for a fourth straight year, the Astros are trying to join the 2004 Boston Red Sox as the only teams to come back from a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series. In the history of seven-game series, 38 clubs have taken a 3-0 lead. Houston became the first team with a leadoff and walk-off home run in a postseason game.

Correa has caught fire in the postseason, and has now hit six home runs in just 10 playoff games. Tampa Bay made things very interesting with a run in the ninth and ended the game with the tying run on third. I don't think I've ever seen him make a wrong decision when he trusts what he sees.

Tampa Bay has made a living off this "opener" thing, sending out someone like Curtiss who makes a quick exit after getting things started. But Baker, the game's oldest manager at 71, never blinked and pulled off one of the most improbable postseason victories in memory, dealing the Tampa Bay Rays a backbreaking 4-3 loss, punctuated by Correa's game victor.

Arozarena homered onto the lower balcony on the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left-field corner with one out in the fourth to tie the game at 2.

Open label trial basically means that participants as well as the investigators both know which drug is given to the participants. Since the Maharashtra government has passed this order, DPCO did not play any role in curbing remdesivir's prices.

On the mound for Houston was rookie Luis Garcia, who had 12⅓ innings of big league experience, who had never pitched in the postseason and who previously stepped on a big league mound 19 days earlier. They got a two-run single from Michael Brantley in the third inning.

Arozarena pulled the Rays to 3-2 with an opposite-field shot to right-center off Enoli Paredes with one out in the fifth.

Garcia held Tampa Bay hitless in two innings while striking out two and walking one. He tied the big league record for homers by a rookie in a single post-season set by Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria in 2008, the only time the team reached the World Series.

On Friday night, Brosseau hit a go-ahead homer in the eighth inning off Aroldis Chapman of the New York Yankees that carried the Rays to a 2-1 victory in the Game 5 clincher of the ALDS.

After Greinke allowed consecutive singles by Manuel Margot and Austin Meadows with one out, Baker came out for a chat and chose to let the veteran right-hander continue. Pinch runner Kevin Kiermaier advanced to second on a wild pitch with one out.
