ALCS Game 7 was a blowout, with the Rangers crushing the Astros 11-4. Texas now goes to the third World Series in its franchise history. They lost the previous two, in 2010 to the Giants and 2011 to the Cardinals.
Meanwhile, we’ll either get a National League team that hasn’t won a WS since 2008 (Phillies) or 2001 (Diamondbacks).
Since 1985, when the League Championship Series went to best-of-seven, this is just the fourth time both LCS have gone seven games. The other three:
2020: Dodgers/Braves and Rays/Astros
2004: Cardinals/Astros and Red Sox/Yankees
2003: Marlins/Cubs and Yankees/Red Sox
Here’s all the info you’ll need for today’s game.
7:07 p.m. CT: D-backs at Phillies. Series tied 3-3.
Pitching matchup: Brandon Pfaadt, RHP vs. Ranger Suarez, LHP
TV: TBS. Announcers: Brian Anderson, Ron Darling, Jeff Francoeur and Matt Winer.
This is the only thread for today’s LCS game. Enjoy, and discuss amongst yourselves.
