MLB Postseason Round 2 Recap and TV Schedule by Chris Watford for NoLuckNeeded.com
The World Series is just around the corner and itís not slowing down, well, the five and a half hour Brewers/Dodgers game was pretty slow. After 13 innings the Dodgers ended up coming away with game 4 to tie the series up at 2-2. Letís look at whatís happened in the past week of playoff baseball.
Boston Red Sox Lead Houston Astros, 2-1
After a spectacular 7-2 win in game one, the Astros proceeded to lose the next matchup, 5-7. Almost everyone in an Astros jersey played perfect baseball in the first game. George Springer was the first player to get the ball rolling for the Astros, with a line drive that split the defense and brought in two runs. It was a close game up until the ninth inning, Josh Reddick started off the inning with a homerun to bring the score to 3-2 but Yuli Gurriel was the one to put things out of reach with a 3-run homer to hoist the Astros to the win. Every game after that was a bit of a nightmare for Houston. The Astros ended up getting completely shutout in the final five innings of game two and they werenít able to turn things around in the next game, getting blown out 8-2. With game four in the top of the 7th, the Red Sox lead 6-5 and the Astros are hoping they can win and prevent a 3-1 deficit. Pitchers have not been announced for game five but you can watch it on TBS this Thursday at 8:09 PM ET.
LA Dodgers Lead Milwaukee Brewers, 3-2
The Brewers are a bit of a cinderella story this year; winning nearly 100 games and making it all the way NLCS. While the Brewers have been able to hold on for the most part, things are slowly starting to slip away from them. After two close games, the Brewers shut out game three. The Brewers pitching started off shaky in game five where Brandon Woodruff gave up five hits and two runs. Things started to go downhill quickly when Joakim Soria came in, walked one, gave up two hits and two runs in a single inning. Pitchers have not been announced for game six. The Brewers are a game away from their season being finished. Can they keep things together and make it to the World Series? Tune in to FS1 this Friday at 8:39 PM ET and see for yourself.
