KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Ben Zobrist hit a go-ahead single in the seventh inning, reliever Wade Davis got replay help for a key pickoff in the ninth and the Kansas City Royals rallied from a three-run hole to beat the Houston Astros 5-4 on Friday, evening their AL Division Series at a game apiece.
US stocks enjoyed one of their best weeks of the year as investors grew more confident that dovish monetary policy would persist, overlooking concerns about earnings and slower economic growth. The broad-based S&P 500 gained 63.53 points (3.26 percent) at 2,014.89, notching the biggest weekly gain since December 2014. Stocks kept their momentum from last Friday, when markets rallied after a poor US jobs report was seen as dimming the prospects for a speedy Federal Reserve interest rate hike.
