Fred Washington has been surrounded by numbers and cities for decades. When his beloved Chicago Cubs scored three in the first, Washington put the crooked number in the right spot. When the Cardinals jumped all over the Pirates, Washington told the story, column by column on the hand-operated scoreboard at Wrigley Field.

On September 4, Los Angeles Angels pitcher Matt Shoemaker was hit in the head by a 105mph line drive. Thankfully, after suffering a small skull fracture and a hematoma, he’s now healed and baseball ready (though since he plays for the Angels, he’ll have to wait until next year to get back to pitching).

Tuesday's Sports in Brief (The Associated Press)

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 23:38:01 PDT

Derrick Rose's rape trial got underway in a Los Angeles courtroom and the NBA star was halfway across the country saying he planned to win the lawsuit. A lawyer for the ex-girlfriend who claims Rose and two friends gang raped her while she was incapacitated cried foul in court, saying Rose had violated the gag order his own lawyer had sought to silence the parties out of the courtroom. A federal judge said he wouldn't make any decision without knowing what was said and hearing from Rose's lawyer.

Giants' Bumgarner, Mets' Syndergaard clash in NL wild card game (The Associated Press)

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 15:22:08 PDT

Baseball's regular season is a novel, one that was full of melodramatic twists and turns this season for the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants. When the Mets host the Giants in the National League wild card game Wednesday night at Citi Field, the novel becomes a Choose Your Own Adventure, with the season hanging on every turn of the page. "Tomorrow's different -- I have not been in a one-game win-all scenario before," said Mets manager Terry Collins, who began his managerial career in 1981.

Blue Jays vs. Orioles: Breaking down the American League wild-card game (Eh Game)

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 09:41:54 PDT

For the first time in franchise history, a wild-card playoff game will be played in Toronto. Both the Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles finished the season with a record of 89-73, but the Blue Jays won the season series between the two teams (10-9) and therefore earned the top wild-card spot in the American League and the right to host the winner-take-all match-up. Before we dive into more details, here are the basics you need to know before tonight’s game: The Basics: Place: Rogers Centre, Toronto Dome: Open First pitch: 8:08 p.m. ET Television: Sportsnet, TBS Note: For Canadians, say goodbye to Buck and Tabby. While the major league playoffs air on Sportsnet, it’s the TBS broadcast that will be simulcast on the network. That means no Buck Martinez or Pat Tabler. Instead, the TBS crew consists of Ernie Johnson doing play-by-play with analysts Ron Darling and Cal Ripken Jr. Radio: Fan 590, ESPN Radio

Here are our predictions for the 2016 MLB wild-card games (Big League Stew)

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 07:48:16 PDT

After 162 regular season games, it all comes down to this. After a grueling grind of the regular season, two excellent teams meet with everything on the line. When the dust settles, one team’s journey continues, while the other club’s dreams get crushed. The best part? We get to do this twice.

MLB managers on the hot seat: Walt Weiss and Chip Hale fired, who's next? (Big League Stew)

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 15:18:32 PDT

The regular season might be over, but the real fun is just beginning for any club that didn’t make the postseason. When things don’t go your way in baseball, people get fired. The first to go was Colorado Rockies skipper Walt Weiss, who resigned his post after three seasons. The Arizona Diamondbacks then canned Chip Hale after two years, along with GM Dave Stewart.

Pirates head into offseason with plenty to work on (The Associated Press)

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 08:01:19 PDT

Clint Hurdle has gained an appreciation for advanced metrics during his six seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. ''The game will always start with pitching,'' Hurdle said. There was no confusion about what happened in Pittsburgh over the summer, when a bid for a fourth straight playoff berth cratered underneath the weight of a starting rotation that failed to live up to the standards set by its predecessors and a bullpen that faltered in crucial moments.

The Chicago Cubs breezed through the regular season with a major-league leading 103 wins. Now, the real challenge begins. The Cubs’ journey to break a 107-year championship drought begins Friday, Oct. 7. Problem is, they have no idea who they are playing yet.

Cardinals miss playoffs for 1st time since 2010 (The Associated Press)

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 16:56:01 PDT

All season long, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny set 10-games over .500 as a target for his team. St. Louis, on its tenth try, finally reached that mark with a 10-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday, but the Cardinals still missed the playoffs for the first time since 2010. Matt Carpenter homered and Randal Grichuk keyed a six-run seventh-inning with a two-run double to lead St. Louis to its fourth win in a row.

Mets 5, Phillies 3 New York's James Loney got all of a 3-1 pitch in the sixth inning and sent a tiebreaking two-run homer over the fence in right field. The Mets never relinquished the advantage and clinched a 2016 National League wild-card berth with a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. New York hosts the San Francisco Giants or St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.

New York Mets seal MLB playoff berth with victory over Phillies (AFP)

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 21:57:32 PDT

The New York Mets defied a welter of injuries to secure a return to the Major League Baseball playoffs with a 5-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Although the Mets were runners-up in the World Series last season, a return to the playoffs looked unlikely in August, when the injury hit team was languishing 5 1/2 games outside a National League wild card spot. Twenty-seven wins later, the Mets locked up an NL wild card berth, with James Loney powering them past the Phillies with a two-run homer in the sixth inning.

Giants to play a 163rd game; opponent TBD (The Associated Press)

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 18:04:43 PDT

The San Francisco Giants are assured of a 163rd game this season. The Giants can claim the second wild-card spot in the National League and a one-game showdown with the New York Mets in the Big Apple on Wednesday with either a win Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers or a St. Louis Cardinals loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Cardinals can still force a one-game wild-card tiebreaker against the Giants on Monday in St. Louis with a win Sunday and a San Francisco loss.

Cubs' Fowler finds stroke at end of regular season (The Associated Press)

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 17:35:28 PDT

When Joe Maddon points at Dexter Fowler and says "It's true," the Chicago Cubs center fielder knows what his manager means. Fowler is batting .333 (19-for-63) with 13 runs scored in his last 17 games. The Cubs are 52-13 when Fowler scores at least one run and are 14-1 when he scores at least twice.

All hands on deck for Cardinals in finale (The Associated Press)

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 17:08:09 PDT

Adam Wainwright will start, but everyone is available. How meaningful it is, though, depends on the help St. Louis (85-76) gets from the Los Angeles Dodgers. San Francisco's 9-3 and 3-0 victories over Los Angeles have canceled out St. Louis' 7-0 and 4-3 decisions over the Pirates, leaving the teams in the same position they have been in since Tuesday.
