In baseball, the Kansas City Royals appear to be on the verge of winning the American League pennant. They lead the mighty Baltimore Orioles 3-0 in the best-of-seven series. And, in the National League, the San Francisco Giants lead the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1. Meanwhile, the annual Head of the Charles Regatta will be held this weekend.
- "Leave it to other teams to blast home runs, deliver clutch base hits or run opponents ragged on the basepaths. The San Francisco Giants have taken a less majestic route through the playoffs, generating most of their offense with a dink here, a dunk there."
- "The Head of the Charles Regatta has brought the world’s best crew teams to the banks of the Charles River for the rowing competition since 1965. It attracts over 11,000 athletes and 400,000 spectators annually."
