Clayton Kershaw gets save as Dodgers top Nats to win NLDS

A little past midnight in Game 5 of the National League Division Series, Clayton Kershaw emerged from the bullpen to pitch in relief for the first time in seven years.

Two outs later, the only save of his major league career in the books, Kershaw's arms were raised and teammates were rushing to celebrate with a guy whose postseason performances have never carried the luster of his regular-season success.

Bad move by Roberts to pull Ruiz in the 7th just to attempt a sacrifice bunt. Ruiz could have stayed in for that and with him on the mound I don't think Washington scores another run. And the Dodgers don't empty out their closer by bringing him in early.

Got away with it for now. But, no rest for the weary.

I like Ruiz a lot. He's going to get plenty of work against the Cubs. Oh yeah that's right. The best team in baseball is waiting.

Indians align ALCS rotation; Danny Salazar unlikely to make roster

Corey Kluber is back at the top of the Indians' make-it-up-as-they-go rotation.

Cleveland will start its ace in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays, one of the few certainties Indians manager Terry Francona has as his team plays for a spot in the World Series.

Indians open ALCS with win over Jays thanks to Francisco Lindor, Corey Kluber

When the ball disappeared over the outfield wall, Francisco Lindor raised his right fist and took off.

Smiling with every stride, Cleveland's superstar-in-the-making shortstop sprinted around the bases as if he was being chased.

Cubs end slump, drub Dodgers to tie NLCS

You could almost hear the sighs of relief all the way from the Lake Michigan shore. No, the Chicago Cubs aren’t World Series-bound, not yet, but they will be returning to Wrigley Field. And it all began with a bunt.

It's underdog Indians against the world

As the Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers strive for closure in their prime-time National League showdown, one thing is certain: Whichever team emerges from the matchup will immediately be favored against the Cleveland Indians in the World Series.

Pitching on full rest with his club facing elimination, Clayton Kershaw entered Game 6 with an opportunity to shake his reputation for underwhelming postseason performances. He didn't.
