Adolis Garcia Smashes 9th-Inning Grand Slam in Game 6 (9-2) to Force Game 7 Between Rangers & Astros

No World Series bids just yet! After a wild weekend in the NLCS and ALCS, we’ve set the stage for a Monday doubleheader that could launch some Fall Classic tickets. The Phillies hold a 3-2 lead in the NLCS after taking Game 5 following Diamondbacks’ wins in Games 3 and 4. In the ALCS, the Astros took a 3-2 lead before Sunday night’s survival game for the Rangers that concluded with Adolis Garcia’s punctuating grand slam in the 9th inning.


Seasons will be decided tonight. We’ll have full coverage of Game 6 (NLCS) and Game 7 (ALCS) in tomorrow’s edition.
