The Houston Astros have kept their American League Championship Series alive with a gutsy 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
George Springer hit a tiebreaking two-run home run in the fifth inning to back the start from Zack Greinke as the Astros avoided a sweep in Game 4 on Wednesday night.
Jose Altuve also homered and drove in a pair for the Astros, while Greinke (1-0) allowed two runs on five hits over six innings, walking one and striking out seven in his first postseason win in 11 starts dating back to 2015.
Game 5 will be played on Thursday.
Randy Arozarena crushed a two-run homer to remain red hot for the Rays, whose four-game winning streak came to an end.
Springer pulled a 99 mph fastball down the left field line and high off the Western Metal Supply Co. building with one out in the fifth for a 4-2 Astros lead. Springer, who entered the night hitting .143 in the series, finished 3-for-4.
Earlier, the Los Angeles Dodgers set a postseason single-inning scoring record by thumping the Atlanta Braves 15-3.
The Dodgers posted 11 runs in the top of the first to win Game 3 to claw their way back to 2-1 in the best-of-seven League Championship series.
Max Muncy smacked a grand slam, Joc Pederson had a three-run homer and Edwin Rios chipped in with a solo shot as the Dodgers sent 14 batters to the plate in the record-breaking explosion.
Game 4 is scheduled for Thursday night.
Riding the momentum of a four-run ninth inning in an 8-7 loss in Game 2, the Dodgers picked up right where they left off against Braves right-hander Kyle Wright (1-1), taking advantage of a break to start the line moving.
Mookie Betts hit Wright's first pitch on the ground to third baseman Johan Camargo, whose long throw was deemed by first base umpire Dan Iassogna to have been in time for a game-opening out.
The Dodgers challenged the call, however, and were rewarded with a reversal that saved them what turned out to be a critical out.
Corey Seager doubled home Betts on the next pitch before Wright retired the next two batters, which would have ended a scoreless inning without the call reversal.
Instead, Will Smith doubled in a run, Cody Bellinger walked and Pederson made it 5-0 with his homer.
Rios went back-to-back for 6-0 before two walks, an RBI single by Seager, a hit batsman and Muncy's grand slam off reliever Grant Dayton completed the 11-run stunner.
The 11 runs were one more than the previous record for a playoff game, set four times, most recently by the St Louis Cardinals, also in the first inning against the Braves in Game 5 of last year's NL Division Series.
The 15 total runs were the most in a postseason game since the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees 16-1 in Game 3 of the American League Division Series in 2018.
Bellinger added a solo homer in the second inning and an RBI single in a three-run third that completed the Dodgers' scoring, following Seager's solo shot in the third.
