The last time both LCS went seven games was 2004, before that 2003, and before that... never, since the LCS was expanded to seven games in 1985. That’s twice in 35 seasons before this year.

So you’re seeing a bit of history tonight. Enjoy!

Here’s all the info you’ll need for today’s game.

Braves vs. Dodgers at Globe Life Field, 7:15 p.m. CT

Series tied 3-3.

Ian Anderson, RHP vs. Dustin May, RHP

In regard to May:

Short-rest starts in the postseason often don’t work out well. Hank Borowy of the Cubs did it in Game 7 in 1945 after throwing four innings in relief in Game 6, and got lit up.

On the other hand:

Dean threw a complete game shutout. Newsom threw well, but got outpitched. Shea didn’t last two innings, but his team won anyway.

And all of those were more than 70 years ago. So, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

TV: Fox-TV (check local listings). Announcers: Joe Davis, John Smoltz, Ken Rosenthal and Tom Verducci
