SPORTS:

ALCS-ASTROS-RED SOX

Alex Cora led Boston to a victory over the hated Yankees. Next up for the first-year Red Sox manager: The team he left after winning a World Series as a bench coach last season. An infielder who spent 14 years with six big league teams, Cora was in Houston for one year before the Red Sox made him the first minority manager in franchise history — and one of its youngest, too. His first season is already a success, with a franchise-record 108 victories, a third consecutive AL East title and the team’s first playoff series win since 2013. By Jimmy Golen. SENT: 700 words, photos.

ALCS-ASTROS-SUPER SPRINGER

Ask Houston manager AJ Hinch to name the best thing about Connecticut native George Springer and he rattles off a laundry list of qualities he admires in the outfielder. “I’m not sure there’s a perfect player,” Hinch said. “But he’s pretty close.” Last year’s World Series MVP hit three homers in the ALDS and the Astros look for him to continue his hot hitting as they prepare for Boston’s powerful offense in the ALCS beginning Saturday. By Kristie Rieken. UPCOMING: 650 words, photos.

EAGLES-GIANTS

The defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles will try to avoid their first three-game losing streak since 2016 when they visit MetLife Stadium for a Thursday night game against the struggling New York Giants. By Tom Canavan. UPCOMING: 700 words, photos. Game starts at 8:20 p.m.

OILERS-BRUINS

The Edmonton Oilers play the Boston Bruins. UPCOMING: 600 words, photos. Game starts at 7 p.m.
