Astros in a hole, NLCS to LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Trailing 2-0 in the NL Championship Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers have the Atlanta Braves right where they want them. At their house. The Braves’ last win at Dodger Stadium was June 9, 2018. They’ve lost nine straight in Los Angeles. The series resumes with Game 3 at Dodger Stadium. Charlie Morton starts for the Braves. Walker Buehler, a 16-game winner in the regular season, takes the mound for the Dodgers.

BOSTON (AP) — Houston’s pitching staff needs to get itself sorted quickly after allowing 25 runs and 32 hits to Boston over the first three games of the AL Championship Series. Veteran right-hander Zack Greinke will try to slow the Red Sox at the start of Game 4 as the Astros aim to erase a 2-1 series deficit. Boston has three grand slams in the past two games.
