Rays Beat Houston To Stay Alive


The Tampa Bay Rays homered four times to back another clutch playoff pitching performance by Charlie Morton and avoid elimination in the American League Division Series with a 10-3 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday.
Facing the team he helped win the World Series two years ago, Morton allowed one run and three hits while striking out nine over five innings to force Game 4 in the best of five matchup at Tropicana Field on Tuesday.
Kevin Kiermaier (KEER'-my-ur) got the wild-card Rays going with a three-run homer off Zack Greinke (GREHN'-kee) in the second inning. Ji-Man Choi and Brandon Lowe hit solo shots off the Astros starter, who has never beaten Tampa Bay on the road, and Willy Adames added a solo blast off Wade Miley in the sixth.
