MLB Update (NLCS):
- Congratulations to the never-say-die Doyyers, who did things the hard way (albeit involuntarily) by squeezing out of a 7th game jam in Milwaukee. Who knows… maybe it was inevitable that they’d find themselves back in the WCS; to their credit, they never lost the faith, but they will need to be more focused going forward if they intend to go farther this year.
- LA had the bigger biceps tonight, and now has its shot at redemption. This game did not go as many people predicted, with Milwaukee coming in with plenty of bullpen muscle and all the intangibles. But in the end, the Dodgers fell back on their decided advantage — home run power — and the game took care of itself. They move on to face a Boston team that has plenty of leadership, chemistry and talent, as well as a recent history of coming up big when it matters. This definitely was the match up that MLB was salivating for; indeed, it will be dramatic watching those Red Sox batters facing Kershaw with the Green Monster beckoning. #Dodgers #Brewers
