Giants Win Longest Game in Postseason History

Giants Win Longest Game in Postseason History

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- Brandon Belt's home run in the top of the 18th inning gave the San Francisco Giants a 3-2 lead, and eventual win, in the longest postseason game in Major League Baseball history on Saturday night. The victory also gave the Giants a 2-0 series lead over the Washington Nationals as the series now shifts to San Francisco.

Washington took a third inning lead on Anthony Rendon's RBI single off Tim Hudson. That looked to be more than enough for Nationals starter Jordan Zimmerman, who pitched into the ninth inning without allowing a run. Zimmerman retired the first two batters in the top of the ninth but walked Joe Panik to put the tying run on base.

Manager Matt Williams went to his bullpen, calling on Drew Storen to close the door. Buster Posey would eventually single before Pablo Sandoval doubled in the tying run, forcing extra innings. Posey was tagged out at home on the play, preventing the Giants from taking the lead.

Both teams used a combined 17 pitchers over the next nine innings, before Belt's homer against Tanner Roark opened up the top of the 18th. Hunter Strickland picked up the save, tossing a scoreless bottom of the 18th, while Yusmeiro Petit got the win going six shutout innings in relief.

The six hour and 23 minute affair surpassed a the 2005 NLDS Game 4 contest between the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros for the longest in playoff history. Houston won that game, and swept the Braves, on a walk-off homer from Chris Burke in the bottom of the 18th inning.

Royals Beat Angels in Extras Again, Hold 2-0 Series Lead

Royals Beat Angels in Extras Again, Hold 2-0 Series Lead

Rich Pilling/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- For the second consecutive night, the Kansas City Royals used an extra inning home run to beat Los Angeles, 4-1, in the American League Divisional Series (ALDS) on Friday night. Eric Hosmer's two-run homer in the top of eleventh gave the Royals a 3-1 lead, taking a 2-0 series lead over the Angels.

Kansas City became the first time in Major League history to open up a postseason with three consecutive extra-inning wins, after spending 29 years without a playoff berth. They are the sixth team to win a trio of extra-inning games in one playoffs appearance. The previous five have all gone on to win the World Series.

The Royals took an early lead against Matt Shoemaker when Alex Gordon drove in Hosmer with a single in the second. Los Angeles would eventually knot the score in the sixth on an Albert Pujols single, making it a 1-1 game after six innings.

The Angels had a chance to take a lead in the bottom of the eighth. C.J. Cron doubled off reliever Wade Davis and was pinch-ran for by Collin Cowgill. Following Chris Iannetta's fly-out to center, newly inserted Jarrod Dyson threw out Cowgill trying to advance to third.

That helped send the game into extras for the second straight night. Lorenzo Cain stretched out an infield single before Hosmer's go-ahead blast off Kevin Jepsen. Kansas City reliever Greg Holland pitched a scoreless bottom half of the inning, striking out Mike Trout to end the game.

The series now shifts to Kansas City where James Shields will take on C.J. Wilson.

Cardinals Rally, Beat Kershaw in Game 1

Cardinals Rally, Beat Kershaw in Game 1

Elsa/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- In a matchup that featured two of the top pitchers in the game, the St. Louis Cardinals won a 10-9 game over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game One of the National League Divisional Series (NLDS) on Friday night. The Cardinals scored eight runs in the seventh inning to come from behind against Clayton Kershaw before holding off the Dodgers late.

It started out as a blowout in favor of Los Angeles, as they built up a 6-1 lead through five innings. After Randal Grichuk homered in the first to give St. Louis a 1-0 lead, the Dodgers quickly took the lead scoring twice in the third. Two more runs were added in the fourth before A.J. Ellis launched a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth off Adam Wainwright.

Meanwhile, Kershaw was mowing down opponents striking out eight batters through six innings. The southpaw had only given up two hits, both solo home runs, going into the seventh inning. It was then that the Cardinals made their rally.

The first four batters of the inning would reach on Kershaw, culminating on a Matt Adams RBI single. Pete Kozma then struck out for the first out of the frame before John Jay singled in another run to make it a 6-4 deficit. After another strikeout got the Dodgers within an out of ending the inning, Matt Carpenter cleared the bases with a double, giving St. Louis a 7-6 lead and chasing Kershaw.

The Cardinals would go on to score three more runs when Matt Holliday homered off reliever Pedro Baez for a 10-6 lead. Los Angeles threatened to take the lead back in both the eighth and ninth innings. Adrian Gonzalez's two-run homer in the eighth made it a 10-8 ballgame, while an RBI ground out got the Dodgers within a run and put the tying score at third. However, Yasiel Puig struck out to end the ballgame and give St. Louis a 1-0 series lead.

Game Two of the NLDS is set for 9:30 p.m. on Saturday at Dodger Stadium. Lance Lynn (15-10, 2.74 ERA) gets the call for the Cardinals while the Dodgers send Zack Greinke (17-8, 2.71 ERA) to the hill.

MLB Postseason Matchups Set

MLB Postseason Matchups Set

Zoonar/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- It took all 162 games, but the Major League postseason was decided on Sunday as the top 10 teams found out where and when their next games will be. Both the American League and National League Central division titles were also won on Sunday while the final AL Wild Card spot was decided.

David Price tossed seven and one-third innings of shutout baseball, giving up four hits and striking out eight, to give the Detroit Tigers the AL Central crown for the fourth straight year. Ian Kinsler drove in a pair of runs in the 3-0 victory while Joe Nathan picked up his 35th save of the season. The Tigers will travel to AL East Champion Baltimore to begin best-of-five divisional series against the Orioles on Thursday.

The Tigers' victory means that Kansas City's first postseason appearance in 29 years will come in the Wild Card round. The Royals will host the Oakland Athletics, who eliminated the Seattle Mariners with a 4-0 win over the Texas Rangers Sunday, in a one-game "play-in" on Tuesday night. The winner of that contest will then travel to Los Angeles to battle the Angels in the divisional round, beginning Thursday.

In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 after they were already crowned Central division champs. Pittsburgh's 4-1 loss relegated the Pirates to the Wild Card round where they will host the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday. Whoever advances will then visit the Washington Nationals, winner of the NL East, in the divisional series on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals begin their defense of the NL Pennant on Friday when they travel to NL West champion Los Angeles to battle with the Dodgers.

Jeter Ends Career with RBI Single

Jeter Ends Career with RBI Single

Jared Wickerham/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- At Fenway Park, the home of the Yankees' archrivals the Boston Red Sox, Derek Jeter received a standing ovation after recording the final hit of his 20 year career. The New York Yankees shortstop singled home a run in the top of the third before being lifted for a pinch-runner.  

The base hit was the 3,465th of his career, sixth most all-time, and gave New York a 3-0 lead en route to a 9-5 win. The 40-year-old removed himself from the game, being replaced by Brian McCann at first base. 

"I had a blast," said Jeter, who made his Major League debut in 1996, winning the AL Rookie of the Year. "Listen, I had an opportunity to do what I wanted to do, the only thing that I ever wanted to do. I know that not a lot of people can say that. I've been fortunate. I've had fun. There is not a thing I would change."

Prior to the game, a ceremony honoring Jeter featured multiple Boston sports icons who could also call themselves "Captain" -- former Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski, New England Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown, Boston Bruins legend Bobby Orr, current Washington Wizard and former Celtics guard Paul Pierce all paid tribute to the 14-time All-Star.

The Red Sox also donated $22,222.22 to Jeter's Turn 2 Foundation. Almost $600,000 in charitable donations were given to his foundation throughout the course of the season.

Despite not reaching the postseason in his final year, Jeter was a member of five World Series championship teams and is the Yankees all-time leader in hits, stolen bases, singles, and doubles.

Lucroy Sets Record in Brewers Win

Lucroy Sets Record in Brewers Win

Milwaukee Brewers/ML​B(MILWAUKEE) -- With an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth, Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy set the Major League record for doubles by a catcher in a single season with 46. It also gave the Brewers (82-79) a 2-1 lead over the Chicago Cubs (72-89), a score they would later go on to win by.

The record was previously held by Texas' Ivan Rodriguez who recorded 45 doubles in 1996. Lucroy has hit a total of 53 doubles this season with seven of them coming as a first baseman. The All-Star's RBI hit also guaranteed Milwaukee of a winning season.

Wily Peralta (17-11) struck out 13 batters, a career high, in seven innings to pick up the win. Closer Francisco Rodriguez moved into the top-10 all-time in saves, picking up the 348th in his career.

Nationals, Angels Clinch Home-Field Advantage

Nationals, Angels Clinch Home-Field Advantage

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With just two days remaining in the regular season, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Washington Nationals each clinched home-field advantage through the playoffs in their respective leagues on Friday.

For the Nationals (94-66), their double header split with the Miami Marlins earned them the top seed in the National League. Washington got a complete game from Doug Fister in Game One, winning it 4-0 to wrap up home-field until the World Series. Fister allowed just three hits while striking out nine in the win. Miami (77-83) went on to win the nightcap 15-7 in a meaningless game for the Nationals.

The Angels (98-62) could clinch the top seed in the American League with a win over Seattle, but the Mariners hit three home runs and picked up a 4-3 victory. Los Angeles did get home-field advantage however due to Baltimore's 4-2 loss in Toronto. Leading 4-0 after five innings, the Mariners (85-75) held off a late charge from LA to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Seattle sits two games back of Oakland for the second wild card spot.

This is the second time in three seasons that Washington has the top record in the NL while the Angels clinched the top spot in the AL for the first time since 2008. The American League has home-field advantage in the World Series thanks to a 5-3 win in the All-Star Game.

Bobby Abreu Announces Retirement

Bobby Abreu Announces Retirement

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Before taking the field with the New York Mets, outfielder Bobby Abreu announced his retirement from Major League Baseball on Friday. 

"I have a lot of fun," Abreu said. "These young guys here are special. Even though I'm 40, they made me feel young. But I realize now that the game is for the next generation."

The 18-year veteran made his debut in 1996 for the Houston Astros, managed by Terry Collins. His career will come to an end on Sunday, with Collins as his new manager, against the Astros at Citi Field. Adding to the symmetry of his career, Abreu's first ever hit came against Bobby Jones of the Mets. 

Since then, the 40-year-old has tallied 2,469 total hits, ranking 10th all-time. Of all active players, only Derek Jeter has played more games than Abreu's 2,423 contests. Abreu was a two-time All-Star and the active leader in career walks (1,475) and doubles (574).

"For sure, Bobby Abreu will be able to walk off the field with his head held high Sunday," manager Terry Collins said.

Zoonar/Thinkstock(CHICAGO) -- For the first time in 29 years, the Kansas City Royals are heading to the playoffs. Kansas City clinched their first postseason berth since 1985 with a 3-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night, ending the longest playoff drought in any of the four major North American sports.

Jeremy Guthrie (13-11) tossed seven scoreless innings for the Royals (88-72), who scored three times in the first inning. Norichika Aoki tripled, scoring Alcides Escobar, while a pair of RBI singles from Lorenzo Cain and Billy Butler added to the advantage.

It the White Sox (72-88) until the eighth inning before finally scoring, getting an RBI single from Alexei Ramirez. In the bottom of the ninth, Greg Holland retired the side in order, getting Michael Taylor to pop up to secure the win. The last time Kansas City was in the postseason, George Brett led the squad to a World Series title over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Royals are still in contention for the AL Central division crown. The Detroit Tigers sit just one game ahead in the standings with two contests left in the regular season.

Cardinals Clinch Playoff Spot, Lose to Reds

Cardinals Clinch Playoff Spot, Lose to Reds

Major League Baseball(SAINT LOUIS) -- The St. Louis Cardinals clinched a playoff spot for the fourth straight season, but did so despite losing to the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 on Sunday.

St. Louis (87-69) reached the postseason thanks to Milwaukee's 1-0 loss to Pittsburgh earlier.

Jay Bruce hit a pair of home runs, two of the four belted by the Reds (72-84), helping Cincinnati snap a six-game losing streak. Starting pitcher Alfredo Simon (15-10) gave up just two run over six innings for the win. Todd Frazier's solo shot in the top of the sixth gave the Reds the lead for good, one that was ballooned by a Bruce RBI Single later that inning.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals must now fight for the National League Central division crown while battling a flu bug that is going throughout the clubhouse. Both Matt Adams and Matt Carpenter sat out for the second consecutive game due to flu-like symptoms.

"There are a lot of guys that are unavailable," said St. Louis manager Mike Matheny. "Almost as many unavailable as available."

Matheny also added that more than 10 players are sick, many of whom may be held back from the team flight to Chicago on Monday. The Cardinals will play the Cubs in a three-game series and currently hold a 2 1/2 game lead over the Pirates in the division.

Kershaw Wins 20th Game, Dodgers Clinch Playoff Spot

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Despite only throwing five innings, Clayton Kershaw picked up his league-leading 20th win of the season as Los Angeles defeated the Chicago Cubs (68-86) 14-5 on Friday. It was the shortest outing in nearly four months for Kershaw (20-3), who was aided by his offense.

"Obviously, you want to go eight or nine every time and be the reason why your team won," Kershaw said. "But sometimes your team does it for you and you just have to be out there. So that was the way it happened today and I'll take it."

The Dodgers hit four home runs as a team, including two from catcher A.J. Ellis. In total, Los Angeles (88-66) racked up 13 hits against Edwin Jackson (6-15) who was making his first start since coming off the disabled list. 

Los Angeles also clinched a playoff spot with Pittsburgh's 4-2 win over Milwaukee. It's the second straight season the Dodgers will be in the playoffs as they hold a 3 1/2 game lead over San Francisco in the NL West.

White Sox Sweep Twins on Viciedo Walk-Off

White Sox Sweep Twins on Viciedo Walk-Off

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- A less than impressive season for Chicago saw a bright spot on Saturday. The White Sox swept a doubleheader with the Minnesota Twins at home, winning Game 1, 5-1, before a walk-off homer in Game 2 notched a 7-6 victory.

Jose Quintana paced the White Sox (68-80) in the opener with 13 strikeouts while Alexei Ramirez homered in the third to open the scoring. His 15th long ball of the year gave Chicago a 2-0 lead in the third inning before the team tacked on three more in the eighth. Meanwhile, Quintana (8-10) walked just two batters in seven innings of work.

The nightcap was a little more stressful for the White Sox as Minnesota (62-86) opened up a 4-0 lead in the first inning. After Trevoe Plouffe's RBI single started the scoring, Oswaldo Arcia slammed a three-run shot off Logan Darnell.

Chicago did battle back though, Avisail Garcia's three-run blast in the bottom of the first made it a one run game before rookie Jose Abreu tied things up with his 34th homer of the year. The White Sox rallied again in the seventh, tying the game on a Conor Gillaspie single, before the Twins took the lead in the ninth.

Kurt Suzuki doubled off Jake Petricka to give Minnesota a 6-5 lead, and seemingly the win. However, Abreu worked a 15-pitch walk from closer Glen Perkins, starting a rally. Pinch runner Jordan Danks was retired on a fielder's choice from Garcia, but Dayan Vicideo launched a walk-off, two-run homer to left for the victory.

Chicago has now won four straight games for just the second time all season, the first since May 4-7.

Chris Davis Suspended 25 Games

Chris Davis Suspended 25 Games

Robbie Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis was suspended 25 games on Friday by Major League Baseball for violating the league's drug policy. Davis tested positive for amphetamines and immediately accepted the suspension.

"I apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Orioles organization and especially the fans,'' Davis said in a statement. ""I made a mistake by taking Adderall. I had permission to use it in the past, but do not have a therapeutic use exemption this year. I accept my punishment and will begin serving my suspension immediately."

The 28-year-old slugger launched 26 home runs in 2014 but holds a major league-worst .194 batting average for the Orioles, who hold a 10 1/2 game lead in the American League East with 17 games to play. Davis' suspension will carry into the postseason, under the terms of the league's drug policy.

Baltimore is already without catcher Matt Wieters and third baseman Manny Machado, who both have undergone season-ending surgery.

Tigers Beat Royals, Earn Tie Atop AL Central

Tigers Beat Royals, Earn Tie Atop AL Central

David Banks/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Max Scherzer gave up just one run in six and two-thirds innings, helping the Detroit Tigers defeat Kansas City 4-2 on Tuesday night. The victory pulled Detroit (80-65) within percentage points of the Royals (79-64) atop the American League Central.

Rajai Davis and J.D. Martinez both homered in the game, as Detroit took a 3-0 lead after two innings. Kansas City made an attempt at a comeback in the fifth on an RBI single by Omar Infante, but could not complete the big inning against Scherzer.

Last year's Cy Young winner only gave up seven hits and four walks, but did strike out six to improve to 16-5 on the year. Closer Joe Nathan almost gave up the lead, allowing a pair of infield singles in the ninth, but finished the job to earn his 30th save of the year.

The Tigers, who had been scuffling in August, have stayed in the pennant race thanks to impressive play against Kansas City. Detroit is 11-4 this season against the Royals and can sweep their division rivals on Wednesday.

Both teams did leapfrog the Seattle Mariners for the second wild card spot on Tuesday, thanks to Seattle's 2-1 loss to Houston.
