I really thought by this point we’d be completely done with the Division Series games, but now we’ve still got another day, at the very least, for the ALDS series.
Philadelphia finally turned in its win and gave us what we expected. They beat the Brew Crew 6-2 and now don’t have any games until Thursday when they will be starting their NLCS series against the Dodgers at home.
Josh Beckett remarkably managed to not put together as solid an outing as he usually does, so the 11-game win postseason win streak against the Angels ended as LA put up a 5-4 win in the 12th. They play again tonight to see if they can lock it down. Lester gets the nod for pitching and he’s been doing well so far.
The White Sox managed to hold onto the series by not allowing the Rays to win with a 5-3 victory. It’s disappointing, but the Boston loss should also help the Rays maintain even momentum against the Red Sox once they win tonight.
Let’s see if we’ll find resolution tonight.
