  • Tuesday’s MLB postseason games: The Yankees beat and eliminated the Guardians, 5-1; the Phillies beat the Padres, 2-0. For the fourth time in eight years, the Yanks will meet the Astros in the postseason (Houston has won each of the previous three matchups). Giancarlo Stanton’s three-run home run was the critical play in Tuesday’s win-or-go-home ALDS Game 5. Stanton now has remarkably homered 11 times in 23 career playoff games. Zack Wheeler was brilliant through seven innings in the NLCS opener. His run support came courtesy of Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber solo shots.
