Washington QB Alex Smith 'didn't want to scare the hell out of' Dak Prescott after Cowboys QB's ankle injury

  Washington QB Alex Smith 'didn't want to scare the hell out of' Dak Prescott after Cowboys QB's ankle injury Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith knows about significant lower-body injuries and said he didn't want to scare Dak Prescott.And even though Smith may be able to offer some guidance and consolation to Prescott, he said he's waiting a little bit before reaching out to Prescott.

Unlikely stars reveal themselves in the World Series — even in the stands.

A fan sitting in Globe Life Field's fifth row of the left-field seats was perfectly positioned to catch Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Will Smith's sixth-inning solo home run. The man, equipped with a mitt on his left hand, leaned back in his seat and reached to haul in the baseball.

Smith's homer cut the Dodgers' deficit to 6-3, and the Rays went on to win 6-4 to even the World Series 1-1.

Major League Baseball played its entire 60-game regular season without fans. Only Globe Life Field, the neutral-site location of the NLCS and World Series, admitted fans, with capacity limited to 25 percent, or roughly 11,000 fans per game.

It's the second consecutive Fall Classic a fan has made an impressive play on a home run. Last year, during Game 5 of the Houston Astros-Washington Nationals series, a fan picked up a home-run ball after taking it off the stomach — because he was holding a Bud Light in each hand.
