ALDS GAME 3
ASTROS AT INDIANS
DALLAS KEUCHEL (12-11, 3.74 ERA) VS MIKE CLEVINGER (13-8, 3.02 ERA)
10:30 AM, TBS
ASTROS LEAD 2-0
With the Brewers sweeping the Rockies, a fun World Series matchup on the table for nostalgia-heads would be Astros-Brewers. It would be the first World Series matchup between an American League team that used to be in the National League and a National League team that used to be in the American League. It would have been right at home in 1996, with dueling sluggers Jeff Bagwell and... uh... (checks Baseball Reference) John Jaha!
NLDS GAME 4
DODGERS AT BRAVES
RICH HILL (11-5, 3.66 ERA) VS MIKE FOLTYNEWICZ (13-10, 2.85 ERA)
1:30 PM, FOX SPORTS ONE
DODGERS LEAD 2-1
The Braves narrowly avoided a sweep last night, despite seeming to have every intention to want to be swept going into the last out of the game. However, they’re alive and still in it, that’s all they can ask for. I would like them to beat the Dodgers, but I curse them forcing Game 4 if only cause I had to spell “Foltynewicz” again.
ALDS GAME 3
RED SOX AT YANKEES
NATHAN EOVALDI (6-7, 3.81 ERA) VS LUIS SEVERINO (19-8, 3.39 ERA)

The playoffs have had a lot of Home Runs. HOMER’S ARE BACK BABY AWOOOO (Wolf noise)
Elevate and celebrate. So far in the playoffs 55% of all runs scored (42 of 77) have scored on home runs. In the Braves-Dodgers' series, 16 of the 20 (80%) of the runs scored so far have come on home runs. Of the 12 games played so far in the playoffs, 2 have been homerless.— JJ Cooper (@jjcoop36) October 8, 2018
Will this prevent sincerely earnest people from saying that Mookie Betts should bunt with a runner on first in a tie game? Nope. We must destroy Small Ball. It’s smaller, so we should be able to like step on it or something.
