The Divisional round of the MLB is officially over after the Detroit Tigers defeated the Oakland Athletics 3-0 behind a fantastic outing from Justin Verlander and a home run from Miguel Cabrera. Now the League Championship Series is set with the NLCS featuring the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. the St. Louis Cardinals while the ALCS features the Tigers vs. the Boston Red Sox. Get your popcorn!

The New York Giants continued their sorry season as they went to 0-6 in a loss to the Chicago Bears. Brandon Marshall had some pretty nice touchdown catches and Bears cornerback was all over the field with two interceptions and a touchdown in the Bears’ 27-21 victory. The NBA Preseason went overseas as the Houston Rockets routed the Indiana Pacers 116-96 behind 21 points from James Harden in the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila. There were also some interesting matchups back in the States including the Kings vs. the Lakers and the Miami Heat vs. the Detroit Pistons on the schedule. Here are The Shoes That Won Last Night.
