In a trim 4 hours, 47 minutes, the Cardinals won Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Friday night, beating the Dodgers 3-2 in 13 innings. It was the third-longest game in NLCS history.
BOSTON -- The Red Sox and Tigers open their ALCS matchup with Game 1 Saturday night. First pitch is scheduled for 8:07pm ET at Fenway Park.
Both teams are sending experienced pitchers to the mound for the series opener. Jon Lester (15-8, 3.75 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 213 1/3 regular season innings) versus Anibal Sanchez (14-8, 2.57 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 182 regular season innings).
Jesus Christ. I just finished an epic 4 day bender. After getting back from the shitty football game and being taunted and called a *** all the way home I barely remember the baseball game after, but thank god for Anibal showing up despite the 6 walks.
Tigers. Wings. UM not so much, but 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
