NEW YORK (AP) The playoff-bound Yankees blew a three-run lead against the worst team in the majors Sunday - and then came the really bad news.

New York shortstop Didi Gregorius has torn cartilage in his right wrist and is unsure whether he will be able to play in the AL wild-card game on Oct. 3. Gregorius, who has 27 homers and 86 RBIs, got injured Saturday when he slid headfirst on Aaron Hicks' 11th-inning double to score the run that clinched a postseason berth for the Yankees.

"It feels a little bit better now," Gregorius said after missing a 6-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in New York's final home game of the regular season. "I slid into home plate, my right hand got stuck. We were celebrating, everything was fine. I went home, fine. I woke up this morning, it wasn't feeling good."

Astros' Morton exits with hurt shoulder

After noticing a dip in velocity, Morton left Houston's 6-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday after one inning because of discomfort in his pitching shoulder. That is a potential problem for the World Series champions, who opened a 4 1/2-game lead over second-place Oakland entering the finakl week as they close in on consecutive AL West titles.
