  MLB playoff picture: Cubs, Twins can clinch postseason berths The latest on all of Major League Baseball's remaining pennant races, as we sail toward the regular season finales on Oct. 1.Monday's big winner: The Chicago Cubs. Not only did they move one win closer to clinching the NL Central by beating the Cardinals in St. Louis, they also saw an improved outing from Jon Lester, who gave up just one earned run in six innings. Perhaps he'll be OK come playoff time.

Congratulations, Austin Rogers; you've won again on "Jeopardy!" -- now go have a taco to celebrate.

While Rogers muffed the Final Jeopardy round on Wednesday's episode of the game show, he still won the day's game, raking in $20,600 for the day, making his seven-day total $278,300.

The Final Jeopardy category, American Plays, bore the clue, "The latitude and longitude given by the narrator of this 1938 play would set it in Massachusetts, not New Hampshire."

The correct answer was "Our Town," and Rogers' response was a far cry from that -- he offered up "What is a taco?"

Most likely a coincidence, Rogers coughed up that answer on National Taco Day. Likely, the episode taped so far in advance that Rogers wasn't aware of it at the time, but who knows -- he looks like a man who really enjoys his tacos.

During the episode, Rogers also got dinged for mispronouncing "sherbet" as "sherbert" -- a standout moment that had fans rushing to Rogers' defense on social media.

"@Jeopardy I'm from Kentucky and I say "sherbert" as well," wrote one Team Austin member.

"#jeopardy we say sherbert in Rhode Island too," wrote another Rogers supporter.

"WTH! Sure-bert is a common way of pronouncing sherbet! They should give that to Austin. #jeopardy," another disappointed viewer weighed in.

Flub or no, it's a sure bet that Rogers will go down as one of the more memorable contestants in "Jeopardy!" history.

A ‘Jeopardy!’ flub led to the Colorado Rockies finding a Marcus Allen on their payroll

  A ‘Jeopardy!’ flub led to the Colorado Rockies finding a Marcus Allen on their payroll Earlier in the week, Jeopardy! had a category called “NFL Teams By Hall of Famers” which wentpoorly.for all of the contestants. The most humorous moment, which is worth it to go watch if you haven’t seen it already, is when a contestant named Anapuma got the answer “running back Marcus Allen” and guessed the not-an-NFL-team Colorado Rockies.
