Leave a comment

Update (6:18 PM EDT): Carlos Gomez tacked on with an RBI single with two outs in the top of the sixth against Volquez. The Astros now enjoy a 3-1 lead.


Royals starter Edinson Volquez had been dominating the Astros through the first four innings of ALDS Game 3 at Minute Maid Park in Houston. But the Astros finally broke through with one out in the bottom of the fifth, using a Luis Valbuena walk and a Chris Carter double to left field followed by Jason Castro‘s two-run single up the middle to take a 2-1 lead.

The Royals scored their lone run when Lorenzo Cain hit a no-doubt home run to left field off of Astros starter Dallas Keuchel in the top of the fourth.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
