BBTN: Rays Win, A's Lose, Numbers Game

Can the Rays go to Houston and take down the Astros? Buster and Keith Law discuss that after reacting to the triumphant return of Yandy Diaz, Charlie Morton's strong start and Oakland's stumble in another winner-take-all game (14:57). Plus, Sarah Langs and "The Numbers Game" (41:13).

The Phillies announced plans Tuesday to extend safety netting for 2020, becoming the 13th MLB team to commit to or put in extensions since a toddler's 5/29 head injury on a foul liner in Houston. The Astros, Braves, Chisox, Dodgers, Nats & O's have installed extensions & the Brewers, D-backs, Jays, Pirates, Rangers & Royals said they plan to. Some teams say they're considering extensions and the Marlins had extended theirs to 150 feet past each dugout before the 2019 season.


Rays clinch wild card with 6-2 win over Blue Jays

The Tampa Bay Rays returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2013, clinching an AL wild card berth with a 6-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night behind Tommy Pham's two-run homer and 4 1/3 hitless innings from Tyler Glasnow.


Hays robs Guerrero, Jays sweep Orioles with 8-4 victory

Cavan Biggio homered and had three RBI to offset a spectacular, homer-robbing catch by Austin Hays, and the Toronto Blue Jays used a six-run seventh inning to beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 Thursday night for a three-game sweep.

Fun note: With Cavan Biggio hitting his 15th home run, the Blue Jays are just the fifth team to have three rookies hit 15 home runs. Only one of those teams had four, however: the 2006 Marlins (Dan Uggla 27, Josh Willingham 26, Mike Jacobs 20, Hanley Ramirez 17).


Betances, Montgomery make season debuts in Yanks' loss

Pitchers Dellin Betances and Jordan Montgomery made their season debuts for the Yankees after lengthy layoffs, and New York finished its longest road trip of the season with a 6-4 loss to Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.

Dellin Betances with his first major league action since the 2018 ALDS. Threw 8 pitches (7 for strikes) and struck out two batters (fast ball at 93-95 mph). Before the game, he addressed whether he could be an effective pitcher with his fast ball sitting between 92-95 mph: "I think a lot of guys have, I don't see why I can't. Breaking ball is good, so I just got to be able to change speeds. Make sure you keep the hitters off balance. That's the name of the game whether you throw 100 or mid 90s or low 90s. Obviously I know arm strength, I am still not where I want to be. Still better than what it was earlier in the season. I am happy with where I am at right now."

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

First action for Jordan Montgomery in 16 months after Tommy John surgery; said he expects to throw close to 60 pitches today. His last major league appearance was May 1, 2018.

CC Sabathia, who will retire at the end of the season, is honored on the field by Blue Jays' President Mark Shapiro, who was his GM in Cleveland from his debut in 2001 until his trade to Milwaukee in 2008.
