Not a Good Return for Kershaw

Correa, who has been with Houston since entering Major League Baseball in 2015, has 17 postseason home runs to his credit across 61 games.

"I just thought Kershaw was throwing the baseball really well, and there was no reason", Roberts told reporters when asked about not going to his bullpen earlier.

The in-form Randy Arozarena and Choi Ji-man crushed homers before Correa stepped up to deliver the game-winning blow.

Correa belted a 1-1 fastball from Rays relief pitcher Nick Anderson into the centerfield seats to deliver a victory that keeps the Astros in the hunt to complete a rare comeback.

In the American League Division Series, the A's watched three Carlos Correa flyballs land over the fence, as he dominated the series and Houston took down Oakland and advanced to the Championship Series.

All this came after Springer belted Tampa Bay starter John Curtiss' first pitch over the fence in left field.

Houston gained some breathing room when Michael Brantley's single scored two runs in the third.

In the NLCS, the LA Dodgers are taking on the Atlanta Braves, but aren't able to find a lot of success. It isn't clear if the Astros are pulling out some old tricks from their bag to cause the Rays so much grief.

Clayton Kershaw is a likely possibility to start Game 4 of the National League Championship Series for the Los Angeles Dodgers if the left-hander's back continues to improve, manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday.

Game 6 will be a rematch of the opener when Blake Snell pitched the Rays past Framber Valdéz and the Astros 2-1.

Their game four loss puts their season on the line tonight.

Under this year's postseason rules, all games will be played on Global Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
