Capsules of American League East teams, listed in order of finish last year:
BOSTON (AP) — Mookie Betts keeps putting up big numbers.
The AL MVP and the World Series champion Boston Red Sox agreed to a $20 million, one-year contract Friday, a raise of $9.5 million that was for a few hours the highest for an arbitration-eligible player.
Betts was later surpassed by New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom, who got a raise from $7.4 million to $17 million.
BRAINTREE, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts great-grandfather has won a $100,000 lottery prize by picking the jersey numbers of five members of the World Series-winning Boston Red Sox.
The lottery said in a statement that 84-year-old Jim Aylward Jr., of Templeton, won the prize in Monday's Mass Cash drawing using the numbers 11-16-19-22-25. He claimed his prize Wednesday.
Mookie Betts and the Boston Red Sox just keep winning.
Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Ian Kinsler won Gold Gloves for the World Series champion Red Sox on Sunday night, and the Atlanta Braves also were recognized for their fielding excellence this season.
The 26-year-old Betts won for the third straight year. He also is a top contender for the AL MVP award.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Now Alex Cora's in trouble.
Boston's manager went for a commanding lead in the World Series, using David Price and Nathan Eovaldi out of the bullpen in Game 3 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
But Los Angeles won 3-2 in 18 innings Friday night, trimming Boston's lead to 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Now Cora has to come up with a starting pitcher for Game 4.
After failing to answer the first time when asked, Cora spelled out his situation.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — From upper-deck spectator to October ace.
Walker Buehler looked nothing like the rookie he is, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers the pitching performance they desperately needed in Game 3 of the World Series.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Kenley Jansen gave up Jackie Bradley Jr.'s dramatic tying homer in the eighth inning Friday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen apparently had failed at a crucial time in another World Series.
As it turned out, Game 3 wasn't even half over.
LA's up-and-down bullpen shook off the disappointment of Bradley's quiet circling of the bases and provided several hours of redemption in an epic 18-inning affair.
BOSTON (AP) — From playoff flop to October ace in two legacy-shifting starts, David Price earned his second postseason victory in a row and moved the Boston Red Sox halfway to yet another World Series title.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Cody Bellinger is the MVP of the NL Championship Series.
All it took was a couple of big swings.
Bellinger hit a two-run homer to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 on Saturday night. Last season's NL Rookie of the Year also singled home the winning run in the 13th inning of a 2-1 victory in Game 4.
HOUSTON (AP) — David Price, at last, looked like a postseason ace. Craig Kimbrel pitched a lockdown inning. And much-maligned Jackie Bradley Jr. became an MVP.
Most everything went right for the Red Sox as they sailed into the World Series. Now the big question for Boston: Is everything all right with ace Chris Sale?
"We're not perfect. That's the cool thing about this team. We feel that we can keep improving. And we have one more series to go," triumphant manager Alex Cora said Thursday night.
HOUSTON (AP) — Jackie Bradley Jr. had only three hits in the AL Championship Series. He certainly made them count.
Batting at the bottom of the order, Bradley homered twice and drove in nine runs to win Most Valuable Player honors as the Boston Red Sox powered their way past Houston and into the World Series.
Alex Cora spent this season rewarding the support of Jackie Bradley Jr., David Price and the rest of the Boston Red Sox organization with a record-breaking year and a run deep into the playoffs. The rookie manager's accomplishments go further than the baseball diamond, too.
Having seen his homeland of Puerto Rico devastated by Hurricane Maria, Cora remains at the forefront of helping the island rebuild.
