The Major League Baseball post-season began last night with Yankees eliminating the Minnesota Twins in the American League Wildcard Round, 8-4. Aaron Judge blasted a three-run homer to break a 4-4 tie. New York advances to the American League Division Series against Cleveland. Tonight the National League plays their Wildcard round as the Arizona Diamondbacks host the Colorado Rockies. First pitch is at 7:00 pm.
The Dallas Mavericks take on the Chicago Bulls tonight for their second preseason game, featuring hyped rookie, Dennis Smith Jr. Tip-off tonight is at 7:30 pm.
And the NBA is changing All-Star game formats. Rather than the traditional East\West selections, fans will vote for two team captains and twelve representatives from each conference. The captains then select their starting five while coaches pick the reserves. The new format allows all-star teammates to play against each other along with players from their same conference.
