(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- Gary Sanchez hit a tiebreaking, two-run double with one out in the eighth inning as the New York Yankees stormed back to even the American League Championship Series at two games apiece with a 6-4 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday.

Game 5 of the best-of-seven series is Wednesday, the Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka opposing Astros ace Dallas Keuchel. Game 6 is Friday in Houston, where the Astros opened the series with a pair of 2-1 victories.

Aaron Judge started the comeback by opening homering off Houston starter Lance McCullers on the first pitch of the seventh. Judge then tied the game in the eighth with a long double off the left field wall against Ken Giles (0-1).


Cubs back at Wrigley down 0-2 to Dodgers

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs return home in a two-games-to-none hole in the National League Championship Series and with plenty of questions left unanswered after back-to-back losses to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Will their struggling offense find a way to recover? What's wrong with a bullpen that yielded late runs in both losses, including surrendering a walk-off, three-run home run Sunday night in Chicago's 4-1 setback in Game 2 at Dodger Stadium?


BoSox's Ramirez, Rodriguez have surgery

(TSX / STATS) -- Boston Red Sox first baseman and designated hitter Hanley Ramirez underwent successful left shoulder surgery on Tuesday and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 season, the team announced.

Ramirez, 33, had a left shoulder arthroscopy and debridement procedure performed by Dr. James Andrews at the Andrews Institute in Pensacola, Fla.


Yankees veteran Sabathia schools Astros

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- When CC Sabathia signed his first professional contract in 1998, Carlos Correa was three years old. When Sabathia made his major league debut in 2001, Alex Bregman was seven years old. When Sabathia won the Cy Young Award in 2007, Jose Altuve was 17 years old.

All of which is to say the elder statesman taught the young Houston Astros a thing or two Monday night, when the 37-year-old Sabathia tossed six shutout innings and earned the win as the New York Yankees got back into the American League Championship Series with an 8-1 victory in Game 3 at Yankee Stadium.


Red Sox interview Cora, Gardenhire next?
