Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com posted an article offering some of the latest Guardians’ managerial search rumors. To summarize, he says the team has interviewed and been impressed by Dodgers’ first base coach, Clayton McCullough, and has expressed interest in interviewing Charlie Montoyo, former Blue Jays’ manager and current White Sox bench coach, and Texas Rangers’ bench coach and offensive coordinator Donnie Ecker. Hoynes says that the Orioles’ Tony Mansolino and Blue Jays’ Mark Budzinski have not been interviewed by the team.

After a bench-clearing incident, the Astros won another road game against the Rangers, 5-4, behind the heroics of Jose Altuve, giving them a 3-2 lead in the ALCS.

The Diamondbacks and Phillies are playing game 5 tonight, while the Astros will host the Rangers for game 6 on Sunday night.
