“Nothing beats autumn in New England,” said His Excellency, the Duke of Fall, who began the day swaddled in a warm flannel blanket, gazing out the window at the golden-hued landscape, as is his custom this time of year. “Everywhere the leaves are changing and the temperature is starting to drop off. You can smell it in the air.”



Raul Ibanez and Coco Crisp provided walk-off wins for the Yankees and A’s on Wednesday to cap off a busy day of playoff action. Ibanez, who pinch hit for Alex Rodriguez in the ninth inning, played the hero in tying the game in his first at bat and then winning with a walk-off homer in the 12th. Crisp delivered a game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth to cap off a thrilling comeback by the A’s. Both teams play again on Thursday. (Thearon W.
