Scouts: Another Boston win, and another themed header gif. It’s starting to look like the big money is going to win out, and we are back to purchasing championships. How exciting. Is anyone looking forward to a Dodger vs Boston match-up? You know, other than MLB and TV executives?
Prof: The beef is real. The beef is 100% organic, free range, all natural. Rumors flew after the marathon game of Tuesday night. Milwaukee pretty much hates Manny Machado, with probable regular season MVP Christian Yelich supposedly calling him a straight up mofo immediately after a press scrum. Wow. Anyway, the Brewers started out with some trickery by pretending to start Wade Miley, but he really only faced one batter then sat down. What? However, the Dodgers showed them what was up. Specifically, Clayton Kershaw took the tired old worn out narrative of him pitching like crap in the postseason and turned that mother out. Kersh went seven innings, struck out nine, and only gave up one run. Work!
The Dodgers are one game away from going to back to back World Series, but first they have to travel back to hostile Miller Park to play game six.
Scouts: This one was back and forth until Jackie Bradly Jr homered in the 6th to give Boston the final lead of the game. Neither Rick Porcello nor Charlie Morton were very effective in this one, and in the end, Houston’s bullpen faltered first. Andrew Benintendi sealed the victory with a diving grab to save Craig Kimbrel’s ass in a bases loaded jam.
Tonight: Boston and Houston will face off, and it’s do or die for Houston who is now facing elimination with Boston leading the series 3-1. Houston will have Justin Verlander on the bump while Boston will hope David Price can overcome his playoff struggles.
