Around Major League Baseball
The Rangers beat the Astros 9-2 last night to force a Game 7 in the ALCS. Nathan Eovaldi delivered another great start for the rangers, Jonah Heim and Mitch Garver both homered, and Adolis García provided the cherry on top with a grand slam in the ninth. Max Scherzer is likely to start Game 7 for the Rangers, taking on Cristian Javier.
To the rest of the baseball world, Jose Altuve is a villain. But in Houston, he is a hero, writes Jeff Passan of ESPN.
Bryan Abreu appealed his two-game suspension. His availability for Game 7 of the ALCS is in doubt pending the result of the appeal.
Dom Chiti is rejoining the Angels organization as a minor league pitching coordinator. He was the Mets’ bullpen coach last year.
