NEW YORK (AP) – Clayton Kershaw will try to extend the Dodgers’ season when he takes the mound against Steven Matz and the New York Mets tonight. The Mets snared a 2-1 lead in the NLDS by setting a team postseason record for runs in a 13-7 win over Los Angeles last night. Curtis Granderson collected five RBIs, Yoenis Cespedes (yoh-EH’-nehs SEHS’-peh-dehs) launched a three-run homer and Travis d’Arnaud (dahr-NOH’) added a solo shot and three RBIs in Game 3.
CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs will look to advance to the NL championship series and end the Cardinals’ season when they host Game 4 of the NL division series this afternoon. John Lackey will go to the mound for the Cards against Jason Hammel. The Cubs took a two-games-to-one lead by belting six home runs in an 8-6 win over the Redbirds.
UNDATED (AP) – Both American League Division series are on hold after the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays forced a fifth and deciding game, both of which will be played on Thursday. The Royals scored five times in the eighth yesterday to turn a 6-2 deficit into an eventual 9-6 win over the Astros in Houston. Homers by Josh Donaldson, Chris Colabello and Kevin Pillar (pih-LAHR’) powered the Jays to an 8-4 win at Texas.
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Clay Helton will run his first official practice as Southern California’s interim football coach later today. Helton inherited the job after athletic director Pat Haden placed Steve Sarkisian on leave and eventually fired him. Haden made the decision to discipline Sarkisian after he showed up at school in no condition to lead Sunday’s practice.
UNDATED (AP) – The New York Rangers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens will try to improve to 4-0 when they take the ice in separate games this evening. The Rangers are home against Winnipeg after opening the season with a 3-0 road trip. The Canadiens conclude a season-opening road trip when they visit the Penguins in Pittsburgh, and the Lightning will face off against the Red Wings in Detroit.
