The Yankees take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Yankees were fueled by a big Game 1s from Gleyber Torres and starter Masahiro Tanaka as they pulled away for the road win. Here's a breakdown of what happened on Saturday night in Houston. Why the Yankees wonGleyber Torres, foremost. Torres drove in five of New York's seven runs, beginning with a double in the fourth.

LSU vs. Florida score, takeaways: No. 5 Tigers outlast No. 7 Gators in surprising offensive shootout

LSU vs. Florida score, takeaways: No. 5 Tigers outlast No. 7 Gators in surprising offensive shootout A Big 12 game broke out on the Bayou as No. 5 LSU managed to outdo No. 7 Florida 42-28 in a high-scoring, back-and-forth affair. Both teams spent the better part of three quarters exchanging touchdowns before LSU's defense started finding success. After falling behind 28-21 in the third quarter, LSU responded with another touchdown of its own to tie the game. That's when LSU's defense finally found its first sack of the night to put Florida in a punting situation. Given the way LSU's offense has played all season, and on this night, punting is the last thing Florida could afford to do, and it paid for it. LSU responded with another TD drive to get the lead back before forcing another Florida punt. The Gators had a chance to tie the game again, putting together another impressive drive of their own, but then quarterback Kyle Trask made his first, and only, mistake of ..

Yankees vs. Astros ALCS: Masahiro Tanaka proves New York had a postseason ace all along

Yankees vs. Astros ALCS: Masahiro Tanaka proves New York had a postseason ace all alongTanaka turned in another dominant postseason start Saturday HOUSTON -- It's no secret the New York Yankees came into the postseason with questions about their rotation. James Paxton was great in the second half but uneven overall in 2019. J.A. Happ and CC Sabathia struggled to keep the ball in the park, and Luis Severino missed five and a half months with shoulder and lat injuries. Masahiro Tanaka was a question too. The veteran kitchen-sinker pitched to a 4.45 ERA in 182 regular season innings, and he had so many problems with his trademark splitter that he changed the grip midseason. That's not something pitchers do on a whim. Tanaka figured out a new grip and pitched well down the stretch, but not enough to eliminate rotation concerns. In Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday, Tanaka continued to cement his status as one of the game's best big game pitchers, setting the tone in a Yankees w..

UFC Fight Night 161 start time — Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Michelle Waterson: Fight card, predictions, odds

UFC Fight Night 161 start time -- Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Michelle Waterson: Fight card, predictions, oddsTake a look at what's to come when Jedrzejczyk and Waterson throw down in Tampa What a wild week it has been as we get set for the UFC Fight Night 161 festivities in Tampa, but throughout all of the drama, we are getting the main event we were promised. Former women's strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk stepped onto the scales on Friday and weighed in at 115.5 pounds, making the marquee bout with Michelle Waterson official. This on the heels of reports earlier in the week that "Joanna Champion" had informed officials that there was no way she would be able to make the required weight. No matter how crazy it's been, though, the main event fight is on. With the drama -- or "mind games" as Waterson (17-6) theorized -- in the rear-view, what we're left with is the fight. And it's a good one as Waterson brings her three-fight winning streak and No. 7 spot in..

Notre Dame vs. USC score: No. 9 Fighting Irish hold off furious rally from Trojans for win

Notre Dame vs. USC score: No. 9 Fighting Irish hold off furious rally from Trojans for win No. 9 Notre Dame welcomed an impressive effort from rival USC but ultimately wore the Trojans down and held on for a 30-27 win to improve to 5-1 on the season. USC quarterback Kedon Slovis had a good performance in his first game back since getting knocked out of the lineup with a concussion, throwing for 255 yards on 24-of-35 passing with two touchdowns and four straight scoring drives in the second half that helped keep the Trojans competitive. Unfortunately, the effort could not overcome the advantage that Notre Dame established with its rushing attack, rolling up 309 yards at 6.6 yards per attempt in the victory. They got it done between the tackles and on the edges, gobbling up yards in small chunks and with big explosive plays. Just when it looked like USC had Notre Dame bottled up in the first half, offensive coordinator Chip Long uncorked a doozie of a play call with this misdirection r..
