MLB Divisional Series Off To Exciting Start


The MLB Divisional Round Playoffs have officially begun, and with it came some fireworks.  After blowing a two run lead in the ninth inning, the Milwaukee Brewers walked off in the bottom of 10th, via a Mike Moustakas RBI single, to give the Brewers a 1-0 series lead over the Colorado Rockies.  

The Brewers pitched by committee, with no pitcher throwing more than a full three innings, and conceded only one hit until their fifth pitcher of the night, Jeremy Jeffress gave way to the Rockies.  He survived, however, when Trevor Story grounded out to end the top half of the inning.

The Rockies struggled all night to get on base against the arsenal of Brewers pitchers.  Going back to the regular season, the Rockies have only mustered 2 runs in five of their last six games.

In the other NL Divisional Round game, the Los Angeles Dodgers took care of the young, Atlanta Braves 6-0.  Hyun-Jin Ryu threw seven scoreless innings, along with eight strikeouts, to quiet the Braves bats.

Dodgers first baseman, Max Muncy, took Mike Foltynewicz deep in third, with three run blast to give the Dodgers a 4-0 lead.  The Braves, who actually had more hits than the Dodgers (6-5) walked the Dodgers a total of eight times.

In the American League, the Houston Astros take on the Cleveland Indians, while Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees visit their old rival, the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

The Indians and Astros kick off at 2:05 p.m. while the Red Sox and Yankees start at 7:30 p.m.  Game 2 of the NL Divisional Series are also on when the Brewers and Rockies collide again at 4:15.  The Braves and Dodgers have the nightcap at 9:30.
