Rays Advance To ALDS

The Tampa Bay Rays have advanced to the American League Division Series. Delmon Young homered and Alex Cobb tossed six-and-two-thirds scoreless innings as the Rays blanked the Indians 4-0 in the AL Wild Card Game at Progressive Field. The Rays will take on the Red Sox in Game One of the best-of-five ALDS on Friday in Boston. The Detroit Tigers and Oakland Athletics will meet in the other ALDS starting Friday.

Both National League Division Series get started tonight. In the opener, the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the St. Louis Cardinals in Game One of their National League Division Series at Busch Stadium. The Pirates advanced to the NLDS with a 6-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the NL Wild Card game on Tuesday. The Pirates won 10 of the 19 regular season meetings between the two teams. In the night cap, the Los Angeles Dodgers battle the Atlanta Braves in Game One of the other NLDS at Turner Field. The Dodgers will send former Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw to the mound in the series opener, while the Braves counter with 15-game winner Kris Medlen.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 2 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
