Carson Wentz threw for a season-high three touchdowns and the Eagles avoided their first three-game losing streak since 2016 by downing the Giants, 34-13 at the Meadowlands. Wentz finished with 278 passing yards sandwiched touchdowns throws of 13 and 1 yard to Alshon Jeffery around a 10-yarder to tight end Zach Ertz to help the 3-3 Eagles build a 31-6 lead.

MLB

The majors' top two teams during the regular seasons will square off in the American League Championship Series.

The Boston Red Sox advanced by surviving a wild ninth inning to beat the Yankees, 4-3 in Game 4 of the ALDS in the Bronx. The Yankees scored twice in the ninth and had the potential winning run on base when third baseman Eduardo Nunez grabbed a slow roller and threw out Gleyber Torres at first to end the game. The Yankees challenged the call at first base, but the Red Sox were able to celebrate in earnest following a 63-second review.

The Red Sox reached losing pitcher CC Sabathia for three runs in the third inning to end the left-hander's night. J.D. Martinez put Boston ahead with a sacrifice fly and Ian Kinsler followed with an RBI double before scoring on a single by Eduardo Nunez to make it a 3-0 game.

Brock Holt made major league playoff history while helping the Boston Red Sox blow out the Yankees to take a 2-1 lead in the American League Division Series.

The Red Sox infielder became the first player to hit for a cycle in a postseason game, going 4-for-6 with five RBIs and three runs scored in a 16-1 laugher in the Bronx. Holt completed the feat by belting a two-run homer in the ninth off catcher Austin Romine, who was asked to get the last three outs.

Holt also hit a two-run triple and Andrew Benintendi laced a three-run double while the Red Sox scored seven times in the fourth to chase loser Luis Severino and take a 10-0 lead.

Alan Chartock

WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock shares his thoughts on the expected vote in the U.S. Senate today regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

More than two months since an Ebola outbreak was declared in an eastern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo, health officials are still struggling to end it.

So far at least 130 people have been infected. Last week the World Health Organization declared that the risk has gone from "high" to "very high" that the disease will spread to other parts of the country and to neighboring countries.

Yet some key health officials remain optimistic that it won't actually come to that.

How is that possible?
