Counsell: Miley to start for Brewers in Game 3

The Cleveland Indians will take on the Boston Red Sox in a best of the seven American League Championship Series, taking the victor to the World Series.

Chris Sale struck out eight for his first career postseason win, J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer and the Boston Red Sox sweated out their shaky bullpen to beat the New York Yankees 5-4 Friday night in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. They clinched the AL West Sep.

HOUSTON - George Springer and the Houston Astros picked up right where they left off last postseason, hitting four home runs to power past the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. The survivor goes onto Fenway Park to face the Red Sox.

In National League action, the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies, 4-0, and the Los Angeles Dodgers cruised past the Atlanta Braves, 3-0, to give both teams commanding 2-0 leads in the best-of-five series. Christian Yelich, the odds-on favorite to win the National League MVP award, received his first taste of postseason play.

However, the Dodgers opponents the Milwaukee Brewers are no pushover. The last time the top seed in each league made it to the World Series was in 2013, when Boston beat St. Louis.

The Cleveland Indians cruised through the AL Central during the regular season, while the defending champions Houston Astros battled injuries to key superstars Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa. Their most recent playoff meeting came in the Division Series in 2005, when Houston advanced on Chris Burke's 18th-inning home run in Game 4.

Prediction: Oakland 3, NY 2.

The Braves played in Boston before moving to Milwaukee after the 1952 season - and then eventually ending up in Atlanta.

The Brewers won their 10th straight game going back to their impressive finish to the regular season. If these teams meet, that would be the biggest gap in wins between pennant winners since the 116-win Cubs lost to the 93-win White Sox in the 1906 World Series.
