Rays stay alive in ALDS after routing the Astros 10-3


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Kevin Kiermaier hit a go-ahead, three-run homer as Tampa Bay teed off on Zack Greinke, and the Rays backed another clutch playoff pitching performance by Charlie Morton to beat the Houston Astros 10-3 and cut their AL Division Series deficit to 2-1.

Facing the team he helped win the World Series two years ago, Morton allowed one run while striking out nine over five innings to force Game 4 in the best-of-five matchup at Tropicana Field on Tuesday.

Justin Verlander will start for Houston.
