Two games today!
So let’s review: The Dodgers spotted the Brewers a five-run lead, in part by making four errors, then made Milwaukee go through seven relief pitchers (and probably made Josh Hader unavailable for Game 2), then put together a couple of furious rallies and had the tying run on third base with two out in the ninth.
I say the NLCS will be tied after today’s game.
Meanwhile, the ALCS gets going at Fenway Park with game-time temperatures expected to be in the mid 40s. With the starting-pitcher matchup indicated below, this should be a low-scoring affair.
Of note, and this hasn’t been mentioned much: Whoever wins these two series, the American League champion will have home field advantage in the World Series, as both the Astros and Red Sox had better regular-season records than either of the N.L. LCS participants.
A full preview of the ALCS from Sara Sanchez will post at 4 p.m. CT today.
