In the American League Divisional Series, the Houston Astros defeated the Boston Red Sox 8-2, and the Cleveland Indians shut out the News York Yankees 4-0. The Astros and Indians each take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-five series.


And, in Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-14.
