National League


Final Score: Los Angeles 7, Chicago 2

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - James Loney clubbed a two-out grand slam in the fifth inning and Manny Ramirez
homered in the seventh as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs, 7-2, in the opener of their National
League Division Series.

Russell Martin also hit a solo shot in the ninth for the Dodgers, who took advantage of eight walks, including three
in the decisive fifth inning, to post their second playoff victory (2-12) since winning the 1988 World Series. Casey Blake
added an RBI single in the eighth inning for the NL West champions.

Derek Lowe (1-0) had six strikeouts over six innings in his eighth career playoff start. The right-hander gave up
seven hits with Chicago's lone two runs coming on a homer by Mark DeRosa in the second inning. Lowe allowed a
base runner in each one of his innings, but managed to consistently escape trouble.

Final Score: Philadelphia 3, Milwaukee 1

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Cole Hamels hurled eight shutout innings as Philadelphia downed Milwaukee,
3-1, in Game 1 of their National League Division Series at Citizens Bank Park.

Hamels (1-0) used great location and a dominating change-up to keep an undisciplined Brewers lineup off-balance
throughout. He allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out nine batters. The left-hander retired the first
14 batters he faced before Corey Hart lined a clean single to right with two outs in the fifth inning.

"Obviously his power changeup is as good as there is in baseball from any left-hander," Brewers manager
Dave Sveum said. "And he had a pretty decent breaking ball, even though he didn't throw it a lot, but it's
probably the best breaking ball we've seen in a while from what we've seen in our scouting reports and stuff.
But, I mean, that changeup is as good as I've seen before and obviously he had everything working today."

AMERICAN LEAGUE


Boston 4, LA Angels of Anaheim 1

Jason Bay helped Boston forget about its former postseason standout left fielder Manny Ramirez with a
game-deciding, two-run homer to help lift the Red Sox to a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels in the
opener of their best-of-five American League Division Series. Bay also doubled in making his postseason
debut after being acquired from Pittsburgh in the trade that sent Ramirez to the Dodgers. Jacoby Ellsbury
had three hits, with an RBI, scored a run, stole a pair of bases and made a spectacular diving catch for the
defending World Series champions.

American League:

Tampa Bay takes 2-0 series lead over ChiSox

St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Akinori Iwamura hit a two-run home run and Dioner Navarro knocked
in two with a pair of hits as the Tampa Bay Rays took a commanding two-game lead in their American League
Division Series with a 6-2 win over the Chicago White Sox at Tropicana Field.

Carl Crawford was 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored while Willy Aybar had two hits and scored for the Rays,
who will try to win this best-of-five series in Game 3 on Sunday, as the matchup shifts to Chicago.

Drew's home run helps Boston extend Angels playoff misery

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - J.D. Drew's two-run home run off star closer Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth
inning broke a tie game, as the Boston Red Sox continued their postseason dominance over the LA Angels of
Anaheim with a 7-5 victory in Game 2 of their American League Division Series clash.

The victory gives the Red Sox a stranglehold on the best-of-five series, as they take a 2-0 lead back to Boston
when the series resumes on Sunday. It was the Red Sox's 11th straight postseason win over the Angels, the
most consecutive playoff victories over one opponent in MLB history.

National League

Milwaukee 4 Philadelphia 1


Hardy victory for Brewers, push Phils to Game 4

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - J.J. Hardy finished 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored, as Milwaukee
stayed alive in the playoffs with a 4-1 win over Philadelphia in Game 3 of their National League Division
Series from Miller Park.

Jason Kendall added two hits and also knocked in a run for the Brewers, who were facing elimination in
the best-of-five set.

In addition, it was the franchise's first postseason win since October 17, 1982 -- in Game 5 of the World
Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Los Angeles 3 Chicago 1

Cubs cursed again as Dodgers sweep NLDS

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The Dodgers broke a 20-year postseason spell with a shocking sweep,
while extending the playoff futility for the Chicago Cubs to over a century without a championship.

James Loney doubled in two runs in the first inning and Russell Martin had an RBI double in the fifth, backing
the strong pitching of Hiroki Kuroda as Los Angeles moved to the National League Championship Series with
a 3-1 victory over the Cubs.

The Dodgers swept the best-of-five Division Series against the team with the top record in the National League
and will face either Milwaukee or Philadelphia in the NLCS. The Brewers staved off elimination in the other
first-round series with a 4-1 win Saturday, forcing Game 4 Sunday.

National League:

Philadelphia 6 Milwaukee 2

MILWAUKEE - With plenty of power to go with their improved pitching, the Philadelphia Phillies are ready for anything in the NL championship series.

Bring on the Los Angeles Dodgers.

"I like our chances," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said Sunday after Philadelphia clinched its first trip to the
NLCS since 1993 with a 6-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

"I think we can hold our own with them. Actually, I think we can beat anybody in the National League, really," he said.

Especially if the Phillies keep playing this way.

American League

ANA 5, BOS 4

Francisco Rodriguez's biggest save of a record-breaking season came in a tie game.

Rodriguez wriggled out of a bases-loaded jam in the 10th inning, Mike Napoli hit two early homers before scoring
the go-ahead run in the 12th on an Erick Aybar bloop single and the Los Angeles Angels avoided another playoff sweep
by beating the Boston Red Sox 5-4 on Sunday night in a game that lasted five hours 19 minutes.

Boston had beaten Los Angeles in 11 consecutive AL playoff games, including three-game sweeps in 2004 and '07
en route to a pair of World Series titles. But the Angels chased Red Sox ace Josh Beckett early, then got six scoreless
innings from five relievers to keep them in the game

http://www.tsn.ca/mlb/story/?id=251846&lid=sublink01&lpos=headlines_mlb



Chicago WhiteSox 5 Tampa Bay 3

The Chicago White Sox try to stave off playoff elimination this evening when they play Game 4 of the best-of-five
American League Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays at U.S. Cellular Field.

Chicago lived to play another day on Sunday, as DeWayne Wise hit a two-run double in a three-run fourth, helping
the White Sox pick up a 5-3 win.

Tampa Bay still leads the series 2-1, and can advance to its first-ever American League Championship Series with
a win tonight.

John Danks (1-0) gave up seven hits and three runs in 6 2/3 innings, with seven strikeouts and three walks, to pick
up another big win for the White Sox. Danks was coming off pitching eight innings of shutout ball in the one- game
playoff with the Twins on Tuesday, and he earned the win as Chicago edged Minnesota 1-0 for the AL Central title.

American League

Boston 3, LA Angels of Anaheim 2

Boston introduced a new late-game hero, as Jed Lowrie's two-out seeing-eye single to right scored Jason Bay with the winning run in
the ninth frame, as the Red Sox advanced to the American League Championship Series with a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels
of Anaheim in Game 4 at Fenway Park. Bay, the man who replaced much- maligned yet still terrorizing hitter Manny Ramirez in a
three-team deal prior to the trade deadline, scored the winning run as part of a solid series.


Tampa Bay 6, Chicago 2

B.J. Upton hit two solo homers, and the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the Chicago White Sox, 6-2, to clinch their first berth in an American
League Championship Series in franchise history. Andy Sonnanstine (1-0) held the White Sox to two runs on three hits in 5 2/3 innings,
with four strikeouts and a walk, to win Game 4, and in the process clinch this American League Division Series for the Rays, who are
making their first postseason appearance.

Philadelphia 3, Los Angeles 2

Chase Utley and Pat Burrell each hit a homer in the sixth inning, as the Philadelphia Phillies came back to edge the Los Angeles Dodgers,
3-2, in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series.

Cole Hamels (2-0) gave up a run in the first inning, but settled down to throw seven solid frames. The left-hander gave up two runs on

Dice-K dominant, Boston wins ALCS opener

St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) - Daisuke Matsuzaka took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and the
Boston Red Sox topped the gritty Tampa Bay Rays, 2-0, in the opener of the American League
Championship Series.

Kevin Youkilis went 3-for-4 and doubled in a run, and Jed Lowrie added a sacrifice fly for the defending
World Series champions, who had lost eight of nine games at Tropicana Field during the regular season.

Myers, Victorino pace Phils to 2-0 NLCS lead

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Shane Victorino and the hot-hitting Brett Myers combined to drive
in seven runs, as the Philadelphia Phillies downed the Los Angeles Dodgers, 8-5, in Game 2 of the
National League Championship Series.

Myers (2-0) gave up five runs on six hits with four walks and six strikeouts over five innings to get the
win for the Phillies, who lead the best-of-seven series two games to none. The right-hander came up
huge at the plate, collecting three hits and three runs batted in. Myers had only four hits and one RBI
during the regular season.

American League

Tampa Bay 9, Boston 8 (11 innings)

Fernando Perez raced home on B.J. Upton's sacrifice fly in the 11th inning, giving Tampa Bay a dramatic 9-8 win over the
Boston Red Sox to cap a wild Game 2 of the American League Championship Series. A total of seven home runs were hit in
the game, tying a postseason record. That included two by Boston's Dustin Pedroia, but in the end, the gritty Rays evened
the best-of-seven series. Evan Longoria had three hits, including a homer, and drove in three runs. Upton also homered off
Josh Beckett, as did Cliff Floyd for the Rays. Kevin Youkilis and Jason Bay homered for Boston, which went 2-for-11 with
runners in scoring position and left 13 men on base. Boston's franchise-record six-game road postseason winning streak came
to an end. Mike Timlin (0-1) walked Dioner Navarro to start the bottom of the 11th.

Los Angeles 7, Philadelphia 2

Blake DeWitt's three-run triple highlighted a five-run first inning, and Hiroki Kuroda threw six-plus
strong innings as the Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 7-2, in a fiery Game 3 of the National
League Championship Series. Manny Ramirez and Casey Blake also singled in runs as part of the
first-inning outburst, and Rafael Furcal homered in the second off 45-year-old Jamie Moyer. The Dodgers
trail the best-of-seven series, 2-1, but have two more games in Los Angeles before possibly going
back to Philadelphia.

American League

Tampa Bay 9 Boston 1

The Tampa Bay Rays hope to push the Boston Red to the brink of elimination this evening, when the teams play Game 4
of the American League Championship Series at Fenway Park.

Tampa went up 2-1 in the best-of-seven series on Monday, as B.J. Upton and Rocco Baldelli each hit three-run homers to
help the Rays to an emphatic 9-1 win. Evan Longoria and Carlos Pena also went deep for Tampa, which has slammed seven
homers over the last two contests.

National League

Philadelphia 7 Los Angeles 5

Shane Victorino and the Philadelphia Phillies struck back with long balls rather than beanballs to move within one win of
the World Series.

After ducking a pitch thrown over his head the previous day, Victorino and much-travelled Canadian pinch-hitter Matt Stairs
delivered two-run homers in the eighth inning that lifted Philadelphia over the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-5 Monday night for a
3-1 lead in the NL championship series.
