AL Game 3:

  • Houston Astros 8 – Texas Rangers 5  (TEX leads series 2-1)

Highlights:  Max Scherzer was roughed up again by the Houston Astros, this time in Game 3 of the AL Championship Series. The Texas Rangers right-hander, who missed more than a month with a right shoulder strain, says he’ll be ready for another shot at the in-state rival if needed. Scherzer lasted four innings Wednesday night, leaving with a five-run deficit in an 8-5 loss to the Astros that cut the Rangers’ series lead to 2-1. The three-time Cy Young Award winner gave up three runs in the second on a wild pitch and Martín Maldonado’s two-run single, then allowed Jose Altuve‘s leadoff homer in the third. Houston took a 5-0 lead on Mauricio Dubón‘s RBI single in the fourth, when Scherzer struck out Jeremy Peña and Maldonado with a man on.
