    Good start from the Dodgers. If they can get another win tonight behind Kershaw, then that's the series wrapped up realistically.

    I was watching the Brewers Rockies game last night and is it just me or was the picture from behind the pitcher very hazy.

    All the other camera angles were very clear but the view from behind the pitcher on screen was much much worse.

    I Think the Dodgers Braves series is a done deal tbh.Really looking forward to Astros Indians expect that one to go 5 games.

    All 5 (if it goes that far) on at reasonable hours for us over here too.

    Great through 5 alright but wheels came off a bit in the 6th. Up to his mates to bail him out now.


    EDIT - and they kind of do (only 2 runs)

    I flicked over at end of the 5th and only getting back to it now!

    Good all round performance from Houston there.

    Has there ever been a sweep without giving up a run? Wouldn't surprise me here with the way Buehler's been pitching lately, although Game 3 will be on the road.

    Closest I could find, going back to 1998, Yankees swept the Rangers in 3 games, giving up just one run. It was earned.:D Google's not showing a scoreless sweep otherwise.

    How good do the Astros look??

    Better than the Red Sox at this point anyway. Good to see Price keeping up his great postseason record :rolleyes: Red Sox look like they might not have the beating of the Yankees.

    Only seen the game stats, no highlights. Looks like he stunk the place out again.

    Astros are the best team in the postseason hands down ,there pitching is just too good,the indians are struggling to find any offense.On today I think the Dodgers will sweep but the rockies may pull a game back.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭krustydoyle


    I'm obviously hoping the Yankees beat the Sox but nobody is getting past the Astros


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭jack presley


    You learn something new every day.

    While I knew a hit ball hitting a base runner meant the base runner was out, I didn’t know the batter still gets credited with a base hit.

    Happened there to the Brewers in Colorado and cost them a run.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭jack presley


    Have also just learned that Curtis Granderson is a Brewer. When did that happen...???

    Very strange at bat from him there. He came to the plate with 2 men on base, didn’t make contact with any pitch he saw but by the time he struck out, both runners had scored (balk and passed ball)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing

    I didn't hear it (had the game on in a bar I was in) but he was booed off the field. Wouldn't be at all surprising if he is no longer a Red Sox player soon.

    Traded from Toronto at the deadline.

    My initial prediction was for the Dodgers to beat the Braves in 5 games, but if they lose again tonight, I'd be very worried going into game 5.
    Time to lock it down Dodgers

    And, woooo, it's on at 9 tonight, so will get to see most of it

    I like the Braves but think the Dodgers have the advantage all over the field and most crucially in experience. I think that might be the winning and losing of this series.

    Have to say the Brewers wont fear either team though.

    At the moment it's looking very much like an Astro's repeat to me.

    Indians' pitchers throwing this game away (literally).

    Very long game too. 3 hours plus already and it's still in the 7th.

    Just getting messier and messier as it goes on.

    Going to take a massive effort by someone to stop Astros going back to back....

    Yeah, wheels have come off the Indians the past couple of innings.


  • Registered Users Posts: 394 ✭✭rebelyell99


    Carlos correa has joined the postseason party with a 3 run HR in the top of the 8th .These division series have been lopsided enough.

    Not the best prediction I ever made :pac:

    I guess it will have to be an Astros v Brewers final now. Agree with alot here that the Astros look the team to beat...

    Alright, I think it's now safe for me to go to bed.

    Go Blue


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing


    Yankees getting thoroughly embarrassed. Advantage Boston.

    Update: Holt hit for the cycle, first cycle in postseason history. His HR was off Romine though so not sure it should count :P
