An Elias Sports Bureau stat that caught my attention: John Lackey had a lower ERA at Busch Stadium this year (1.93) than Jake Arrieta had at Wrigley (1.97).

Corey Seager is batting third in his first post-season game. "We've put him all over. He's handled everything," Don Mattingly said.

The game didn't start that well for rookie Hanser Alberto but it ended very well. Playing in place of injured Adrian Beltre, he made an error in the second inning that led to two unearned runs and tied the game. But he hung in there and singled home the winning run in the 14th inning of the Rangers 6-4 Game 2 victory. Texas returns home with 2-0 lead in series.

Rangers take 2-0 lead back to Texas

It took 14 innings, but the Rangers will head home up 2 games against the Blue Jays in the ALDS. Rougned Odor scored the go-ahead run on a Hanser Alberto RBI single. Box score


Rangers come through in the 14th

Rougned Odor and Chris Gimenez came around to score for Texas and broke the 4-4 tie. The Blue Jays will bat in the bottom of the 14th, behind 2 runs, looking to avoid going down 2-0 in the ALDS. Follow live

Jays, Rangers benches clear in 13th

Rangers P Keone Kela and Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson got into a heated argument after Donaldson hit a foul ball in the 13th, leading to both benches emptying. Donaldson eventually struck out, and the game is now in the 14th.

99 years ago today, Red Sox & Dodgers played a 14-inning World Series game. Winning pitcher: Babe Ruth who threw 14 innings.

Houston Astros @astros

Correa stayed in the game and ended up striking out for the second out of the 5th. Rasmus now at the plate. #Astros lead 4-2.

What were Jays and Kele jawing over in the 13th? Hard to say until post-game interviews but perhaps they're all just upset they might miss their flight to Texas as we head to the 14th inning.

Edwin Encarnacion almost puts game away

After a walk to Jose Bautista, EncarnaciĆ³n hit a fly to deep center and was really close to a walk-off homer in the 13th, but Delino DeShields made the grab at the warning track. The Rangers and Blue Jays are even at 4 going to the 14th. Texas has a 1-0 lead in the ALDS. Follow live

Back, back, back, back... Caught. That. Was. Close. Edwin Encarnacion flies out to the wall and we're going to the 14th.

Benches empty after Josh Donaldson hits long foul off Rangers reliever Keone Kela, but no punches thrown. Donaldson strikes out.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Despite the fact that catcher Yadier Molina hasn't played since tearing a ligament in his left thumb on Sept. 20, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said that the decision to start Molina in today's NLDS opener was really no decision at all.


Jim Caple Senior Writer, 

Now in the 13th inning and after four-plus hours, if this game lasts much longer, perhaps Beltre's back will have time to fully heal and he can pinch-hit.

Gordon Edes ESPN Staff Writer 

There have been three AL division series games that have gone 13 innings or more. Last was 2012, Game 4, Orioles 2, Yankees 1 in 13.
