It will be the Houston Astros against the Kansas City Royals in the American League Division Series. Yes, Yankee fans that means what you think it means. Dallas Keuchel combined with three relievers on a three-hitter as the Houston Astros beat the New York Yankees 3-0 to win the AL wild card game. Keuchel gave up the Yankees' three hits while striking out seven in six innings before the bullpen accounted for three hitless innings. Colby Rasmus put the Astros ahead with a solo blast in the second before Carlos Gomez added a solo shot in the fourth.

In Major League Baseball, in the American League, Derek Jeter capped his Yankee Stadium farewell with a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning, the latest storybook moment in a charmed and illustrious career, to give New York a 6-5 victory last night over the Baltimore Orioles. Jeter saved the best for last — a sharp, opposite-field single to right field that knocked in the winning run. After the game Jeter said that he played his last game at the position, and he would only serve as the designated hitter in his final three games in Boston this weekend.
