Game 2 NLCS: Philles are now 2-0 over the Dodgers, winning 8-5. Not only did some of the RBIs come form the reliable Shane Victorino, but 3 of them came from Brett Myers, the pitcher! Doesn’t look like the Dodgers are going to win in 5 now, looks like they’re going to have to submerge from a 2-0 deficit first.
Game 1 ALCS: Daisuke Matsuzaka carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and came close to making history. Dice-k settled after a strenuous first inning of 27 pitches. Walking 3 to load up the bases. Both Matsuzaka and Shields were dominant, but Dice-K was the one that struck out 9 and only gave up four hits in 7 innings. After putting two men on in the eighth, the bullpen did the rest getting the last six outs. Justin Masterson got Evan Longoria to ground into a 6-4-3 double play to end the eighth, and once again, the Rays left runners stranded. The Red Sox got the first run on a sacrifice fly by Jed Lowrie to score Jason Bay. The second run came on a RBI double by Kevin Youkilis to score Dustin Pedroia. Jonathan Papelbon came in for the ninth and got a quick 1-2-3 inning. The Red Sox had lost 8 of 9 at Tropicana Field this year, but this is the post season, not the regular season. We can’t count anyone in, or anyone out for that matter, in this ALCS.
Going to a playoff game and getting good seats? 200 dollars
Getting out of a jam to get the Rays to leave two men on and silencing the cowbells? Priceless.
