Thanks to the Rangers defeating the Astros Sunday night, we have one more 2023 day on which there’s more than one baseball game.
Adolis Garcia, who was involved in controversy when he was hit by a pitch after homering in Game 5, hit a grand slam Sunday to put that game out of reach. The ALCS still has not had a win by the home team, and now tonight’s game is for a World Series berth.
Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks will try to force a Game 7 in the NLCS. We have not had two seven-game LCS since 2020, and not in a 162-game season since 2004.
Here’s all the info you’ll need for today’s games.
