Sports Headlines: 

>>Brewers Place Reliever Williams on Injured List With Sore Shoulder

(Los Angeles, CA)  —  The Brewers pitching staff is extremely thin for the best-of-three playoff series in Los Angeles.  Milwaukee left reliever Devin Williams off the Wild Card round roster due to a sore shoulder.  Williams was named National League Reliever of the Month for September and an important part of the bullpen.  He struck out 53 of the 100 batters he’s faced in 2020.  Brewers number-one starter Corbin Burnes is on the injured list with an oblique strain and left-hander Brett Anderson is out with a blister issue.

>>MLB Announces Limited Ticket Sales To Playoff Series In Globe Life Field

The NLCS starts on October 12th.
