Morning Marquee: Cardinals, Royals, Orioles rally for wins


In a day full of MLB Postseason action, three teams – the St. Louis Cardinals, Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles – rallied late to win their respective games. St. Louis pounded Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace Clayton Kershaw in the seventh inning, the Orioles relied on another big eighth inning to down the Detroit Tigers and the Royals once again homered in extras to sink the Angels.

Both Baltimore and Kansas City now hold 2-0 advantages in their best-of-five series. The Royals are returning home to Kauffman Stadium for Game Three, while Baltimore will leave the nest, heading to Detroit as Miguel Cabrera and the AL Central champion Tigers look to get back on track after the bullpen imploded on back-to-back days.
