Well, the Astros did it. I guess also the Rays did it.
Whoever you blame, the Astros won for the third straight day, forcing a Game 7 in the ALCS:
If the Astros become only the second team in history to come back from a 3-0 postseason deficit, well, we’re gonna hear about that one for a while. So … Rays … perhaps you want to show your best. Maybe they’re just setting up the optimal heartbreak.
I absolutely do not agree to this:

The game, tonight at 7:30pm CT, will feature Lance McCullers against Charlie Morton.
Meanwhile, the Dodgers also kept their season alive, moving things along to a Game 6:
Braves opener AJ Minter was pretty incredible through three innings, but the rest of the bullpen got blown up by the Dodgers from there. By contrast, Dodgers starter Dustin May went only two innings – allowing both of the Braves’ runs – and then the bullpen shut the Braves down for seven innings.
Game 6 is today at 3:30pm CT, with Max Fried facing Walker Buehler.
