Baseball playoffs: With the Detroit Tigers eliminating the New York Yankees in Game Five of an American League Division Series Thursday night, the American League Championship Series is set with the Tigers vs. the Texas Rangers. Attention on Friday turns to two Game Fives in the National League Division Series.
At 5:07 p.m. ET, the Arizona Diamondbacks visit the Milwaukee Brewers. Trends would seem to make the Brewers the favorites in this one. The home team has won the previous four games in the best-of-five series. SI.com's Joe Lemire takes a look at the stats and the momentum shifts in this series.
At 8:37 p.m. ET, the St. Louis Cardinals visit the Philadelphia Phillies. The Cardinals got into the playoffs on the final day of the regular season, when they beat Houston and the Atlanta Braves lost to the Phillies in extra innings. Philadelphia was the preseason favorite to represent the National League in the World Series. SI.com's Ben Reiter writes that if the Cardinals can get contributions from some of their lesser-known players as they have so far in this series, they could send the Phillies home without championship rings.
Prostate screenings: The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force will soon recommend that men not get screened for prostate cancer, according to a source privy to the task force deliberations.
The task force is set to recommend a "D" rating for prostate specific antigen, or PSA, testing. Such a rating means "there is moderate or high certainty that the service has no net benefit or that the harms outweigh the benefits," according to the group's website. The task force is set to propose this recommendation Tuesday, and then allow for a comment period before issuing a final recommendation.
According to a draft copy of a report scheduled to be released Monday, a review of studies shows screening with the PSA blood test results in "small or no reduction" in prostate cancer deaths.
Korea curfew: U.S. troops in South Korea face a 3 a.m. to 5 a.m. weekend curfew for the next month after two U.S. service members have been accused of rapingÂ local girls in the past month.
The commander of U.S. Forces Korea, Gen. James D. Thurman, said the curfew would be in place from midnight to 5 a.m. Monday to Friday and from 3.a.m. to 5 a.m. on Saturday, Sunday and holidays. It will be in place for the next 30 days, Thurman said.
"Given the incidents that have occurred over the last several months, I'm reinstating the curfew to assess current conditions," Thurman said.
Military officials had rescinded the previous curfew on July 2, 2010. That curfew had been in place for nine years.
