Arrieta, Cole to meet in NL wild-card game
Cubs RHP Jake Arrieta has been lights-out since the All-Star break -- can he shut down Gerrit Cole and the Pirates in the NL wild-card game Wednesday?
Colby Rasmus is celebrating accordingly
The LF hit his first postseason home run, he's covered in champagne and the Astros are headed to the ALDS. Looks like a good night.

This is starting to become a habit for the Astros.

Maybe Dallas Keuchel will be this year's Madison Bumgarner. (We'll be saying that until we're all six feet under.)

Yankees made the playoffs, forgot to show up. Ugly end to year.

In the final analysis, the 2015 Yankees turned out to be just one game better than the 2014 Yankees, and that game turned out to be a harmless 3-0 loss in the one-game WC playoff to the Houston Astros. And in a disturbing parallel with last years team, this one was undone by their bats, or lack thereof.

On just three days rest, Dallas Keuchel tossed six shutout innings, and Colby Rasmus and Carlos Gomez homered to beat the Yankees in the AL wild card game 3-0. It's Houston's first postseason win since Game 6 of 2005 NLCS. Box score
