Once again, in a key spot in October, the Boston Red Sox summoned Nathan Eovaldi from the bullpen in a tight game. Time and time again, win or lose, the do-everything right-hander had done the job for manager Alex Cora's club. Called into Game 4 of the AL Championship Series to begin the ninth inning against Houston with the score tied at 2, Eovaldi wound up allowing four runs — they all scored after a close call on a pitch that would've let him escape unscathed.

On Tuesday’s Hannity, Meghan McCain stopped by for her first television interview since leaving The View at the end of July. She was there to promote her new audio memoir, Bad Republican, in which McCain has a chapter about how her opinion has changed when it comes to former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who ran alongside her father, John McCain, during the 2008 presidential election. “I have a whole new lens of viewing how Sarah Palin was treated, and how the people working for my father's campaign really, you know in my opinion, treated her really horribly. Set her up for failure,” McCain said. McCain, who had been much more critical of Palin in the past before softening her stance, pointed to Palin’s infamous interview with Katie Couric as an example of how she was set up to fail. And added that the person who facilitated that interview for the campaign, Nicole Wallace, now works for MSNBC. “I just really hope our culture has some redemption for Sarah Palin, in the same way we have for so many other women right now,” McCain said.
