MLB Playoffs: ALCS Game Three & NLCS Game Four

New, comments

The ALCS switches to Detroit and the NLCS keeps rolling in California.

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The playoffs so far have been mainly about the pitching with low scoring games aplenty. The Tigers blew a terrific opportunity to head home up 2-0 before their bullpen melted down and allowed a game-tying grand slam to David Ortiz. Can Justin Verlander get them back on track for a series victory, or will John Lackey and the Red Sox lineup take control of the series on the road?

You can catch the game on FOX and Postseason.tv at 4:00 pm ET.

On the National League side, the Dodgers kept their backs off the wall temporarily with a victory in last night's game. They'll need to pull off victory again today against Lance Lynn and co. if they hope to stay a game away from elimination with their best pitchers not returning until later in the series. Yasiel Puig came alive with two hits in Monday night's game, but can he help carry an offense with an injured Hanley Ramirez suffering from a fractured rib?

This game will air on TBS and Postseason.tv beginning at 8:00 pm ET.
