Jake Arrieta's season-long issues continued, Yasmani Grandal did his thing, and the Dodgers are up 2-1.
It wasn’t really a bad pitch that
threw to Jake Arrieta . He’d certainly thrown worse. When Arrieta cut loose a 3-2 sinker at 93 miles per hour in the bottom of the fourth inning on Tuesday night in Los Angeles, the Dodgers already led the Cubs 1-0, thanks to a hanging slider righteously thwacked for an Yasmani Grandal single by RBI the inning before.

Corey Kluber vs. Aaron Sanchez in Toronto and Jake Arrieta vs. Rich Hill in Los Angeles.
Despite having to dip into the bullpen after just 21 pitches and two outs, the Indians rode their relievers to a gutty--perhaps “gory” is a better word--
4-2 victory on Monday night. left the game in the first inning after his drone-related lacerated pinky turned the game into something out of a Trevor Bauer Saw movie, but the combined efforts of , Dan Otero , Jeff Manship , Zach McAllister , Bryan Shaw , and Cody Allen held the vaunted Jays offense to just two runs. Seriously, at what point do we consider giving the ALCS MVP award to the entire Indians bullpen? Andrew Miller
Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen shut down the Cubs, tying the NLCS at 1-1 heading to Los Angeles.
The last time two starting pitchers with ERAs this low faced off in a postseason game, New Coke was still but a twinkle in Don Draper’s eye, and Bobby Kennedy had been dead less than four months. That matchup, as it turned out—St. Louis’
(1.12) versus Detroit’s Bob Gibson (1.96) in the 1968 World Series—wasn’t quite as good as the one we saw last night. Denny McLain (1.69) and Clayton Kershaw (2.13) both acquitted themselves admirably under Wrigley Field’s bright October lights, allowing just a run between them, and together kept this joyful run of remarkable postseason games alive. Kyle Hendricks Read the full article... Dave Roberts and Joe Maddon went move for move in Game 1, and then Miguel Montero made Wrigley Field explode.
The Cubs and Dodgers kicked off the NLCS last night, and be honest, you thought the Cubs would win. You might be a Dodgers fan, and you might be riding high from
in relief, or think Clayton Kershaw has prettier eyes than Corey Seager . But you Kris Bryant read the previews and remembered the Dodgers slashed just .213/.290/.332 in the regular season vs. left-handed pitching, and further remembered on the mound, and got a little sick to your stomach.

Are the Dodgers gassed after their NLDS battle or can they topple the Cubs juggernaut?
and the Dodgers Dave Roberts pulled out all the stops in Game 5 of the NLDS, riding and Kenley Jansen to knock out the Nationals. Their reward? A seven-game date with the 103-win Cubs, whose Clayton Kershaw furious Game 4 comeback against the Giants brought them one step closer to the World Series everyone in Chicago has been thinking ahead to for months.

Modern bullpen usage be damned, Dave Roberts was determined to use his best pitchers in Game 5 and the Dodgers are moving on.

Rich Hill vs. Max Scherzer, in Washington.
One game, for all the marbles and a seven-game date with the Cubs. Washington turns to $210 million ace and former
winner Cy Young . Los Angeles turns to ... Max Scherzer . Rich Hill The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe. Clayton Kershaw as human and the Dodgers' bullpen imploded, but Los Angeles still forced a Game 5.
had a decision to make. The Dodgers found themselves in a win-or-go-home Game 4 and Dave Roberts had given a poor, three-inning effort in Game 3 which burned a total of seven bullpen arms. Kenta Maeda , the talented but still raw rookie lefty was slated to start Game 4, but Roberts took a gamble and decided to start Julio Urias on short rest. Clayton Kershaw Read the full article...

It may seem crazy, but there might be an argument to be made for a catcher--yes, a catcher!--deserving Cy Young votes.
It’s been an interesting year in baseball and in general (and it’s not over!). Maybe I’m getting a little ahead of myself, but I’m personally looking forward to seeing what happens in the voting in November. The
voting. (Is there another vote thing going on?) Cy Young The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe. Washington grabbed a 2-1 series lead as the two managers handled Game 3 much differently.
The final score hardly told the full story, and yet it was far more representative of the game as a whole. A four-run ninth turned what was a tense, belabored slog into a laugher. The Dodgers got off to a quick start, as for the third straight game their starting pitcher struck out
in his first at-bat and, for the third straight game, Trea Turner drove in a run in his first at-bat. It was downhill from there, though, as the Nationals worked counts, driving Corey Seager ’s pitch count up. Kenta Maeda Read the full article... Washington evened the NLDS at 1-1 thanks to Los Angeles repeatedly failing with the bases loaded.
As Game 2 between the Nationals and Dodgers got underway Sunday, it would’ve been reasonable to believe that Los Angeles was feeling good about themselves and their chances of going back to the West Coast with a 2-0 lead. After all, they’d managed to snatch a victory in Game 1 when the Battle of the Aces fizzled into a bullpen duel. So, it didn’t come as much of a surprise when the Dodgers stormed out of the blocks early against
and Washington. Tanner Roark Read the full article... Clayton Kershaw vs. Max Scherzer didn't quite live up to the hype.
Don’t call it a pitchers' duel.
