We saw some historic postseason baseball yesterday:
This was the 82nd time in Dodgers postseason history that they trailed by 3+ runs in the 8th inning or later— Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) October 20, 2021
It's the first time they won such a game
The Astros' 7 runs with 2 outs in the 9th inning were tied for the 2nd-most runs with 2 out in a postseason inning, behind only the Dodgers' 10 2-out runs in the 1st of 2020 NLCS Game 3— Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) October 20, 2021
No team had ever scored more than 4 runs with 2 outs in the 9th or later in a PS inning
Will we see more history today?
Here’s everything you need to know for today’s LCS games. Enjoy today, there is only one more possible day in 2021 (Saturday) where two games could be played (that would be NLCS Game 6 and ALCS Game 7, if those series get that far).
Astros vs. Red Sox, 4:08 p.m. CT. Series tied 2-2.
Framber Valdez, LHP vs. Chris Sale, LHP
TV: FS1. Announcers: Joe Buck, John Smoltz, Ken Rosenthal and Tom Verducci.
Braves vs. Dodgers, 7:08 p.m. CT. Braves lead series 2-1.
Huascar Ynoa, RHP vs. Julio Urias, LHP
The Braves are planning a bullpen game today. For that matter, with Urias going, the Dodgers might wind up having one, too.
TV: TBS. Announcers: Brian Anderson, Ron Darling, Jeff Francoeur and Lauren Shehadi.
This is the only thread for today’s two games. Enjoy, and discuss amongst yourselves.
