Rangers waiting for winner of Astros/Twins playoffs
The Rangers lost at Seattle on the last day of the regular season, making them a wild-card team instead of the AL West champion. Since then, they have won all five of their postseason games. They are in the American League Championship Series for the first time since 2011. Corey Seager continues to go deep with his bat in the postseason. This time, he helped the Rangers sweep the Baltimore Orioles with a 7-1 victory Tuesday night. Seager and Adolis Garcia (ADD-doe-LIS) homered early, and Nathan Eovaldi pitched seven smooth innings in another playoff clincher. Texas now waits to see if they will be going to Houston or Minnesota for the ALCS Game 1 on Sunday. Fans were chanting Houston at the end of the game last night.
Micah Parsons and the Cowboys are hoping for a rematch with the 49ers after their historic 42-10 loss last Sunday in San Francisco. But Niners star Deebo Samuel had a word of warning for Parsons and the Cowboys. “I don’t think [the Cowboys want to see us again. It might be a little bit worse.” Samuel’s pointed comment was in response to a question about Parsons, who called out George Kittle for an anti-Cowboys shirt that the 49ers tight end flashed after one of his three touchdowns Sunday night.
TCU quarterback Chandler Morris has a sprained MCL in his left knee and likely will miss multiple games. Horned Frogs coach Sonny Dykes described the injury as a “week-to-week” issue. Morris got hurt in the third quarter Saturday night when TCU (3-3) lost 27-14 at Iowa State. His left leg twisted while being tackled.
