MLB

The Astros beat the Cubs 6-5.

 

The White Sox and Royals were tied 1-1 in the fifth inning when their game was suspended by rain.

 

BOSTON (AP) _ Bill Buckner was among the finest hitters in his day, but he also committed one of the most memorable errors in World Series history. Buckner’s family said in a statement that the former outfielder and first baseman died Monday at 69 following a long battle with dementia. 

Buckner was a 1981 All-Star and a 1980 batting champion while with the Chicago Cubs. But he is better known as the first baseman who allowed Mookie Wilson’s slow roller to go underneath his glove to end Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, allowing the Mets to beat the Red Sox before capturing the Fall Classic in seven games.
