    MLB Postseason

    I thought Counsel would stick with Pomeranz in the 8th since he didn't allow a base runner in the 6th or 7th. Then you only use Hader for one inning instead of two and have a more rested closer for the division series. So, Hader ends up giving up 3 runs on the Soto single and blows the save in the 8th. The terrible HBP call in the Taylor at bat didn't help though. And the Nationals advance to the next round.

    "The terrible HBP call in the Taylor at bat didn't help though."

    I thought that for about 3-4 replays, but the last one I thought had it a millimeter hand before bat - and definitely not overrulable.

    Pomeranz batted in the 7th but did not pitch in the 8th, iirc. wtf

    how is that even possible in a 3-1 game? in a 1-game playoff, how many pitchers did the Brewers have, anyway?

    for those of us who didn't care who won, the Nats' Big Three SPs are infinitely more interesting than the Yelich-less, "no one is allowed to pitch 5 innings" Brewers. now we have 4 NL teams with a real chance instead of 3.

    Fair, JJ. But I hate rooting for the Nats. Easy to find a little love for the Brew Crew.

    Yandy Diaz, just activated on the final day of the regular season after spending 9 weeks on the DL, goes 3-4 with 2 solo HRs to help the Rays beat the A's 5-1 in the AL Wildcard.

    Tyler Glasnow gets the nod over Blake Snell to start game 1 of their ALDS against the Astros on Friday.

    I hope that Glasnow K's 15 batters while Meadows hits 3 homers and Pirates owner Bob Nutting is so embarrassed that he fires GM Neal Huntington on Saturday lol.

    BTW, when the hell did Daniel Hudson get this nasty? His stuff was off the charts good...

    And why didn't the Twins take a shot at him?

    Good pitching beats good hitting unless it's Alex Bregman.

    Bregman has 9 career post-season home runs. Here's who Bregman has homered against in the post-season:

    Chris Sale (2 times)
    Trevor Bauer
    Clayton Kershaw
    Corey Kluber
    Kenley Jansen
    Blake Snell
    Stephen Strasburg
    Fernando Rodney

    note: One of these is unlike the others.

    Wow! Osuna almost wasted a great pitching performance from Cole. But Will Harris got the final two outs with the bases loaded.


    Gerrit Cole is the seventh pitcher to strike out 15 or more batters in a postseason game.


    Cole's 33 swings and misses breaks the postseason record since pitch tracking began in 2008.


    Cole's 116th pitch of the game was clocked at 100 mph!
