HOUSTON (AP) — J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers helped the Red Sox have a grand old time in Houston. Boston became the first team to slug two grand slams in a postseason game, with Martinez and Devers connecting in the first two innings of a 9-5 win over the Astros on Saturday that tied their AL Championship Series at one game apiece.

In the Southeastern Conference, the coach on the hot seat can change week to week. Florida's man had a lot of explaining to do Saturday after the 20th-ranked Gators lost to LSU and last week's coach-in-big-trouble Ed Orgeron. In fact, it was last season's game decided by a thrown shoe that seemed to start the precipitous drop in confidence among Gators fans with their fourth-year coach.
OTTAWA — The third time was the charm for Matthew Shiltz. Shiltz threw one touchdown pass and ran for another while David Cote kicked three field goals to lead the Montreal Alouettes to a 27-16 win over the Ottawa Redblacks on Saturday.

Rickie Fowler returned to the spotlight Saturday in the foothills above Las Vegas with his best round in three years, a 9-under 63 that gave him a two-shot lead over Rory McIlroy going into the final round of the CJ Cup at Summit. Fowler hasn't had an opportunity this good since his last victory on the PGA Tour in the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open, and it doesn't figure to be easy at The Summit Club with all the low scores it has been yielding. McIlroy started the final round nine shots out of the lead, ran off five straight birdies on the front nine and then took care of the scoring holes, closing with a 7-iron into 20 feet for eagle on the par-5 18th hole for a 62.

Officials with Vancouver's Board of Parks and Recreation say they have been unable to pinpoint exactly what caused multiple fish to die in Stanley Park's Lost Lagoon. Following heavy rains in mid-September, dozens of carp, a bottom-feeding invasive species, began appearing at the surface of the water and along the shoreline. A statement from the Parks Board does not say how many carp died, but that necropsies of some of the fish did not reveal an exact cause. Officials believe that the die-off i
