A look at what's happening around the majors today:MAKING THEIR PITCHStephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals try to move within a win of the World Series.

HOUSTON (AP) — A man in the Astros dugout who was not in uniform was hit by a foul ball off the bat of Houston's Michael Brantley during Game 2 of the AL Championship Series and exited with a towel over his head.The Astros released a statement late in Sunday night's game on behalf of Harris County Emergency Corps, which said one of its employees was hit and taken to a hospital, where he was evaluated and in stable condition. The company, which provides paramedic services, provided no other details."My thoughts and prayers are with his family and him, and I hope I can talk to him soon," Brantley said after the Astros beat the New York Yankees 3-2 in 11 innings.Play was briefly halted after the accident in the fifth inning, and Houston manager AJ Hinch came on the field to console a shaken-up Brantley.Several Astros players were shown in the dugout looking distraught, as were Yankees players who had a view into Houston's dugout.

Happ, the Yankees' ninth pitcher, to give the Houston Astros a 3-2 win Sunday that tied the AL Championship Series at one game apiece.On a night when starter James Paxton lasted just 2 1/3 innings and 51 pitches, Yankees manager Aaron Boone treated the third inning like he would the sixth during the regular season."Just felt like we were covered as far as today with getting some length and having guys rested.

HOUSTON (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton was out of the New York Yankees' starting lineup for Game 2 of the AL Championship Series because of a right quad strain that happened before he homered in the opener against the Houston Astros.Manager Aaron Boone said before Sunday night's game he didn't know Stanton was hurt until after the end of Game 1. Boone said the slugger was injured running out a single in the second inning. That was four innings before he hit a solo home run off Zach Greinke in New York's 7-0 victory, and the left fielder also made a nice defensive play when moving to catch a liner."So hoping that it's something that with today and the off day, that he would be back in play for Game 3," Boone said. "We'll just kind of see how these next 48 hours unfold."Boone said Stanton could be a pinch-hitting option in Game 2 and could play the field in an emergency. There is a day off in the series Monday before Game 3 in New York on Tuesday night.Stanton was limited to 18 games during ... [More]

Stanton remained in the game and homered off Zack Greinke in a 7-0 New York victory.Stanton had an MRI that revealed the strain.

HOUSTON (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton is not in the New York Yankees' starting lineup against Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander for Game 2 of the AL Championship Series.Cameron Maybin was starting in left field instead and hitting seventh on the lineup posted by the Yankees before Sunday night's game. Stanton, the 2017 NL MVP, homered against Zack Greinke during a Game 1 victory Saturday.New York didn't immediately specify whether Stanton was held out due to health or for matchup concerns. The big right-handed hitter missed most of the regular season with injuries, including a strained ligament in his right knee that was still limiting his workload near the end of the regular season.Stanton has one hit — a homer — and five strikeouts in nine plate appearances against Verlander.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Justin VerlanderSPAstrosFree Agent
The St. Louis Cardinals' front office says baseballs have suddenly lost their juice this postseason, supporting a claim from a prominent data scientist that the balls have changed following a historic, homer-friendly regular season.Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said Saturday that St. Louis' analytics department has found the ball is flying 4 ½ fewer feet on average in the postseason. Players in both leagues have been stunned when hard-hit balls have fallen on the warning track this month, raising more questions about the makeup of the baseballs after hitters clubbed a record 6,776 home runs in the regular season — a rise attributed to unusually far-flying balls."I mean there's probably all kind of different theories behind that that I won't really get into," Shildt said before a 3-1 loss to Washington in Game 2 of the NL Championship Series. "Just the fact of the matter, it could be any number of things."The numbers don't leave much doubt, says data journalist Rob Arthur. He was amo... [More]

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Daniel Hudson and his wife, Sara, tried to plan the birth of their third child around Washington's postseason schedule.When it didn't work out, he knew exactly what he needed to do.Hudson stayed with his wife for Millie's arrival Friday, and then rejoined the Nationals in time to close out their 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2 of the NL Championship Series on Saturday.The 32-year-old right-hander, a key member of Washington's bullpen, said he knew all along he had to be there — a decision the organization supported."To be able to have that experience with my family and be there for the whole thing was everything I could have imagined," he said. "Obviously, it is my third kid. And top three things in my life, 1A, 1B and 1C, are, was being there for the birth of all three of my daughters."Hudson was reinstated from the postseason paternity list Saturday, and Wander Suero was removed from the Nationals' NLCS roster.While Hudson was away, Aníbal Sá...
