Dodgers one win away from first World Series since 1988

CHICAGO – Yu Darvish stepped outside the batter's box as his eyes registered the location of the last pitch. It was a fastball from Cubs reliever Carl Edwards Jr., like the three pitches before it, and it was not a strike, like the three before it. Darvish roared and chucked his bat into the grass. The trajectory of the lumber was not majestic – it felt more visceral, the stunned reaction of Darvish seeing fortune smile on the Dodgers.

Yankees come back late to beat the Astros 6-4 and even ALCS at two wins apiece

For two decades, Aaron Judge dreamed of a night like Tuesday. Often when he takes batting practice, he visualizes the moment, loud and cold October baseball, his team in need of a hit, his name blasted over the loudspeaker. When he was a kid taking cage hacks in California's Central Valley, he envisioned it a little less clearly. Last winter, after he hit .179 in his first major league action, he used the prospect as fuel to prepare better than ever before. He has never lost sight of the dream.
