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 sacrifice fly in the 10th to beat the Atlanta Braves, 5-4, Monday.
Molina slung his bat far into the outfield 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 deficit to 2-1.
