For about three innings last night, it looked like Roy Halladay might throw a second no-hitter in the playoffs. The Giants' Cody Ross had other ideas, hitting not one, but two home runs off him. That's the same number of home runs the Cubs hit off Halladay on July 18 at Wrigley Field when Geovany Soto and Alfonso Soriano went deep off him.

The Phillies' Jayson Werth hit a two-run homer off Tim Lincecum to make the game close. Who would have guessed that with those two pitchers going, home runs would make the difference in the game?

Anyway, this looks like it'll be a close and competitive NLCS. The ALCS, which takes the day off before resuming in New York tomorrow, is tied 1-1 after the Rangers won a playoff game at home for the first time in franchise history.

People in the New York area who have Cablevision didn't see the NLCS yesterday because of a dispute between Cablevision and Fox. As of this morning that dispute has not been settled, meaning New York Giants fans who have Cablevision will need to find another place to watch their team, and unless it's settled by evening, NLCS Game Two won't be there, either.

7 pm CDT, Fox: Giants at Phillies. Giants lead series 1-0. Announcers: Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.
