A look at what’s happening around the majors Sunday:Houston tries to become the second team to sweep major league-leading Boston this season when the teams complete their three-game series on national TV. The defending World Series champion Astros took the first two games to extend their winning streak to seven Allen Craig Jersey , including a 5-3 win Saturday backed by Alex Bregman’s 30th homer. The finale will be a matchup of former AL Cy Young Award winners, with Houston’s Dallas Keuchel opposing Boston’s Rick Porcello. The Red Sox were swept for the first time by Tampa Bay in late August.MR. CONSISTENCYJacob deGrom has allowed more than three runs in one start this season, back in April. That’s why he’s a candidate for the NL Cy Young Award despite an 8-8 record for the fourth-place Mets, who’ve struggled to score when he’s been on the mound. He’s winless in his last three starts despite pitching to a 1.35 ERA in those outings. DeGrom will go for his ninth win in a matchup with the contending Phillies http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-tony-gwynn-jersey , who have their own Cy Young candidate in Aaron Nola (16-4).ROLLING ROBBIERobbie Ray and the playoff-chasing Diamondbacks conclude a series against NL East-leading Atlanta. Ray (5-2, 4.25) hasn’t lost since July 12 and is coming off 6 1/3 electric innings against San Diego, when he struck out 10 and allowed two hits in a 6-0 win. Braves starter Touki Toussaint (1-1, 3.38) pitched no-hit ball through four innings against Boston last time out before getting hit around in the fifth.WEATHER WOESThe Reds moved their series finale against the Padres to 4:10 p.m. to give the teams a better chance of escaping the rain that has interfered with the previous two games in Cincinnati. Friday night’s game ended after midnight because of a 2-hour http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-dave-winfield-jersey , 37-minute rain delay, and Saturday’s game was called after seven innings because of more bad weather. If Sunday’s game were postponed, the Padres would be forced to fly back from San Francisco on Sept. 27 for a makeup game between last-place teams. “We would love, love Rollie Fingers Jersey , love to get these games in here the next couple days,” San Diego manager Andy Green said.Rain also forced a postponement of the Cubs-Nationals game in Washington on Friday night, forcing a doubleheader Saturday with more rain forecast for Sunday. BOSTON (AP) — The Latest on the World Series (all times local):12:03 a.m.Andrew Benintendi, J.D. Martinez and the Boston Red Sox came out swinging in the World Series opener http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-randy-jones-jersey , seizing every advantage in their quirky ballpark to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-4 on a chilly Tuesday night.Benintendi delivered four hits, Martinez drove in two early runs and pinch-hitter Eduardo Nunez golfed a three-run homer to seal it. The 108-win Red Sox got a solid effort from their bullpen after an expected duel between aces Chris Sale and Clayton Kershaw never developed.Xander Bogaerts hit into a go-ahead forceout in the fifth and Rafael Devers followed with an RBI single for a 5-3 lead.After Manny Machado hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh for his third RBI, Nunez homered over the Green Monster off Alex Wood in the bottom half.Boston’s David Price faces Hyun-Jin Ryun in Game 2 on Wednesday. This marks just the third World Series in which both starting pitchers in the first two games are lefties.
