And, in Major League Baseball playoff action...

The Detroit Tigers have taken a 2-0 series lead in the American League Championship Series, with 6-4 and 3-0 defeats of the New York Yankees, a team that suddenly looks old and vulnerable (51 strikeouts in their last five games), and that has lost Derek Jeter for the remainder of the season to a fractured ankle.

The St. Louis Cardinals, a team that almost nobody thought would go to the National League Championship Series as the ninth inning began in the fifth and deciding game of their Divisional series against the Washington Nationals (which it improbably won 9-7), has taken a 1-0 lead against the San Francisco Giants with a 6-4 win.
