Division Series' Night Two: Two Shellackings and a Standstill
You know...of all four division series, I expected certain teams to be up 2-0...but of all eight, I did not expect the Indians to be this hot off the beat. They're 2-0 over the Red Sox with one game left to win, and the pitching that I worried so much about is working the magic, in comparison to David Price and Rick Porcello. This Indians team that took the whole season to get hot is now finally retaining momentum, even after I feared they'd lost it.
Problem is they're going back to Boston for at least one game, and Fenway will be booming, I'm sure of that.
Thankfully, Javier Baez turned in a run finally, and the Cubs snuck out with the win, but it's proved how tricky this series is gonna be, even if the Cubs are what they are.
Fantastic day of playoff baseball. Tomorrow, the madness continues in the NL.
