Okay, Game One of the NLCS turned out to be a blast. The Brewers worked with a significant lead for most of the bout, but the Dodgers nearly pulled off an exciting comeback. Even more interesting, Milwaukee relief pitcher Brandon Woodruff hit a moonshot home run off Clayton Kershaw!

That narrative will be tough to shake, especially if the Dodgers don’t advance to the World Series.

Game Two will feature a battle of the left-handers. as Wade Miley gets the ball for the Brew Crew. Meanwhile, Hyun-Jin Ryu will start for the Dodgers. Goodness, Milwaukee’s rotation is brutal, isn’t it? First pitch is scheduled for 4:09 PM, and the game will be broadcast on FOX.

There’s also the ALCS, where the Red Sox will take on the Astros. That game features Chris Sale going up against Justin Verlander. I wonder if it’s possible for both teams to lose. First pitch is at 8:09 PM and you can watch on TBS.
