ALCS Update: Kinda Asking for it Edition
This is what happens when they've got the heart of the lineup coming up and you still want to put in J.A. Happ.
Not to say this was entirely Happ's fault, as he's just had bad luck in general this year, but...this was kind of bound to happen. What's impressive is that they went for like 5 or so innings with just both bullpens firing from all cylinders, and sending the game into extras. Even from lineup-heavy teams like the Yankees and Astros, you still love to see stuff like this.
Great stuff from Correa and Springer, and a nice homer from Judge. It'll be interesting to see where this goes once we take it to the Bronx.
Tonight is Strasburg vs. Flaherty in DC. I'm not expecting there to be many runs scored.
