Tonight’s potential World Series clincher sees Max Fried match up with Luis Garcia as the Astros host the Braves. But while we have a solid pitching matchup to look forward to, the trend of first-inning runs is something to look out for.
Thanks to two walkoff wins in Atlanta, the Braves hit L.A. with a 2-0 NLCS lead over the Dodgers. Will the champs hit back at home, or will the Braves do what they didn’t do last year and take a 3-0 lead?
Just as they did last year, the Braves took Game 1 of the NLCS thanks to a big ninth-inning hit by Austin Riley. Can they take a 2-0 lead over the Dodgers yet again? The champs may be favored, but there’s a lot to like about these Braves.
The ALCS opens tonight in Houston as the Red Sox take on the Astros. Neutrals may hate the matchup, but it should be an entertaining series between two of MLB’s top offenses. Which bets should you focus on for the series?
A big night is ahead in San Francisco, as the Dodgers and Giants duel to determine who moves on the face the Atlanta Braves in the NLCS. Expect the pitching on both sides to dominate, at least early on.
The Braves bounced back from a tough Game 1 loss to the Brewers with a Game 2 win. Will Ian Anderson help put them 2-1 up today? Anderson was brilliant in the playoffs as a rookie. Look for him to pick up where he left off.
Will the defending champs get a crack at a repeat, or will they be sent packing by one of the league’s elder statesmen? That either the Dodgers or Cardinals must lose is a shame, but we should be in for a good one. With two top arms on the hill, should we expect a low-scoring evening at Dodger Stadium?
While we didn’t get the wild card chaos many were hoping for, we do get a real treat tonight. Fenway is the place to be as the Red Sox meet the Yankees with the season at stake. There will be no tomorrow for one of these teams. Which one will still be standing later?
When you are in need of a win to secure a postseason berth, a team and a pitcher who have your number are not an ideal matchup. But that is the spot the Yankees find themselves in as they face Michael Wacha and the Rays to wrap up the regular season.
After putting their postseason hopes in peril with consecutive series losses, the Red Sox have stepped up in the big moments against the Nationals to move within a win of a wild card berth. Will they seal the deal in today’s season finale, or will debutant Joan Adon help the Nats help the Blue Jays and Mariners?
