Cardinals force Game 5

-

Yadier Molina pushed the St. Louis Cardinals to a deciding Game 5 of the NL Division Series, poking a tying single in the eighth inning and lifting a sacrifice fly in the 10th to beat the Atlanta Braves, 5-4, Monday.

Molina slung his bat far into the outfield after his winner, and the packed crowd at Busch Stadium roared with the longtime heart of the franchise.

Nationals 6, Dodgers 1: Max Scherzer's season-saving, seven-inning pitching performanc­e and Ryan Zimmerman's three-run homer lifted host Washington to a 6-1 victory over Los Angeles to force a deciding Game 5 in their NL Division Series.

Scherzer struck out nine.

Rays 10, Astros 3: Kevin Kiermaier hit a go-ahead, three-run homer as Tampa Bay teed off on Zack Greinke, and the Rays backed another clutch playoff pitching performanc­e by Charlie Morton to beat visiting Houston and cut their AL Division Series deficit to 2-1.
