The Rays took command of the American League Championship Series with a 5-2 win over the Astros last night. Tampa Bay leads the set 3-0, and could wrap up the pennant tonight.

The Braves held off the Dodgers 8-7. L-A scored four runs in the bottom of the ninth to make it close. Atlanta leads the National League Championship Series 2-0. That series also continues this evening.

The Tigers have begun interviewing managerial candidates. The first discussion was reportedly held with Dodgers coach George Lombard. Lombard was an outfielder for Detroit in the 2002 season.
