Dodgers, Tigers Did What They Had to in NLCS, ALCS Wins Over Cardinals, Red Sox
With their backs against the wall, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers stepped up in the areas they needed to in clutch league championship series wins. L.A. is still alive after the bats finally woke up and the Tigers made the required adjustments to tie their series against the Boston Red Sox. Put simply, these MLB playoffs just got even more interesting.
Adrian Gonzalez came back from the baseball dead and Zack Greinke did what the Dodgers signed him to do to send the NLCS back to Missouri. Of course, the St. Louis Cardinals‘ absolutely pathetic batting average certainly didn’t help their cause and they didn’t get a surprise hero this time. So now they have a second of three shutout chances with the final two at home. Are you having deja vu and sweating bullets yet, Cardinals fans?
The Tigers desperately needed run support after 1-0 loss despite a gem pitched by Justin Verlander in Game 3 and they got it on Wednesday night. So now as they get ready for Game 5 at home — a must-win — the Tigers must make sure their offense stays hot because the Red Sox are the most dangerous team in the playoffs and they know it.
So get ready for that wild contest on Thursday night and then a lively elimination game in St. Louis on Friday. Obviously, check back with Rant Sports for the latest MLB playoff coverage and then all your World Series needs once the Fall Classic matchup is decided.
