Forget all you've heard about Matt Harvey of late, the Mets ace delivered a performance that won't soon be forgotten on Saturday night.

Forget all that you know and all you have heard.

Weary aces square off with Jake Arrieta and the Cubs aiming to deny Noah Syndergaard and the Mets a 2-0 series lead.

After an series opener in which New York’s Dark Knight pitched his way back into Gotham’s good graces with 7 ⅔ strong innings against Chicago, the Cubs will counter with an ace of their own in Jake Arrieta. Toeing the rubber for the home team in the Big Apple? None other than Marvel’s answer to DC’s Batman: the young god Thor, bearing a hammer of a fastball and the locks of an angel.

Playoff Prospectus: The Cubs Do Simple Better: NLDS Game 2

Rian Watt

The Northsiders used everything in their arsenal to even the series at one.

It was 54 degrees on October 3rd in Milwaukee, and the Cubs were bunched around the batting cages, working on their bunting. Manager Joe Maddon, who spent years as a nuts-and-bolts minor-league instructor, and whose mantra this year has been “Do Simple Better” was convinced that his players would need to come up big in a bunt situation come playoff time, and wanted to drive home that message on the penultimate day of the regular season. Maddon’s decision took just a week to pay off. The Cubs did simple better Saturday night in St. Louis, beating the Cardinals 6-3 in their own ballpark and taking the series back to Chicago knotted at one.

Breaking down the Dodgers' darkest timeline.

To a certain extent, context determines how ugly a loss looks. Under normal circumstances, a 9-0 defeat can be classified as convincing. But after the first five games of a neck-and-neck NLCS in which no game has been decided by more than three runs—and in which the two teams have combined for nine runs only once—a 9-0 defeat feels like a lopsided, impossibly-out-of-reach embarrassment, especially considering that the losing team started the best pitcher in baseball.

The Dodgers hit homers and take a step toward Game Seven.

“An element that was big in the first series against the Braves has finally returned here in the NLCS: the long ball,” Ernie Johnson said to Don Mattingly during the between-innings interview segment managers must love.

How the Cardinals got within one win of the World Series.

Matt Holliday hit a long home run on Tuesday night. According to Home Run Tracker, it traveled 423 feet, which made it the fourth-longest homer hit since the postseason started.

Momentum is only good as the next day's starting pitcher. Specifically, the worse one.

The Dodgers dropped back-to-back starts by Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw on September 7 and 8. The Cardinals squandered 11 regular-season starts by Adam Wainwright. So it’s not as if what we’ve seen over the first three games of this NLCS has been without precedent.

Wacha wins again.

It took the Tigers three hours and 56 minutes to win 1-0 in nine innings in the Saturday night game. Earlier in the day, St. Louis accomplished the same in two hours and 40 minutes.
