This is an injury report that will make you wince. Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross had to leave this afternoon’s game against the Mets after ending the first inning with a ground out to third base. He had to be carted off the field with what the team has officially reported as a dislocated hip, via MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert.

When Ross came out, Martin Prado moved from third base to left field. Rookie Matt Davidson came into the game at third base. Davidson would get his first career hit leading off the top of the sixth, singling to left field against Mets starter Jon Niese.

Ross, now 32 years old, missed the first ten games of the season with a strained left calf. Since returning on April 13, he has posted a .747 OPS in 350 trips to the plate.

The Diamondbacks signed Ross as a free agent in the off-season to a three-year, $26 million contract.

Things haven’t gone quite according to plan for the Astros, who missed the opportunity to clinch the American League Championship Series after losing 4-1 to the Yankees in Game 5 on Friday. Still just one win away from a World Series invitation, they’ll try their luck again on Saturday night.

Neither lineup has been significantly altered for Game 6. The Yankees will try to push the series to a final Game 7 with right-hander Chad Green, backed by this configuration:

1. DJ LeMahieu (R) 1B
2. Aaron Judge (R) RF
3. Gleyber Torres (R) 2B
4. Aaron Hicks (S) CF
5. Edwin Encarnación (R) DH
6. Didi Gregorius (L) SS
7. Gary Sánchez (R) C
8. Gio Urshela (R) 3B
9. Brett Gardner (L) LF

The Astros, meanwhile, will send Brad Peacock to the mound in what figures to be a bullpen game for both sides, marking the righty’s first official postseason start since the 2017 ALDS. Martín Maldonado is back in the lineup, as is Josh Reddick, while both Robinson Chirinos and Jack Marisnick will be available off the bench.

1. George Springer (R) CF
2. José Altuve (R) 2B
3. Michael Brantley (L) LF
4. Alex Bregman (R) 3B
5. Yuli Gurriel (R) 1B
6. Carlos Correa (R) SS
7. Yordan Álvarez (L) DH
8. Martín Maldonado (R) C
9. Josh Reddick (L) RF

Starting tonight, the ALCS returns to Houston for Game 6 and a potential Game 7. Game time is set for 8:08 PM EDT.
