ALCS Game 2: Orioles vs. Royals & NLCS Game 1: Giants vs. Cardinals

New, comments
Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Orioles and Royals are back in action this afternoon after a thrilling extra innings game that ended after midnight on the east coast last night. Bud Norris takes the mound for Baltimore against Yordano Ventura for Kansas City. At least the weather is supposed to be better than last night's rainy conditions.

On the National League side at 8 pm, the Giants and Cardinals square off in Game 1 of their Championship Series. Madison Bumgarner gets the start for San Francisco opposite Adam Wainwright for St. Louis. This might be the least compelling team matchup possible, but those two pitchers are very capable of putting on an entertaining show.
