Major League Baseball’s been around 151-years. In all that time, no team has ever accomplished what the Dodgers did in the first inning of Game 3 of the National League Championship Series last night.
Los Angeles scored a playoff record 11-runs in the first inning en route to a 15-3 route of Atlanta. The Dodgers brought 14-men to the plate while the Braves went through two pitchers. Oh, and by the way, L-A scored 10-of those runs with two outs! The onslaught was highlighted by Max Muncy’s grand slam home run.
It was one of 5-home runs hit in the game by the Dodgers as Joc Pederson went 4-for-6 with 3-RBI’s and Corey Seager finished 3-for-4 with 3-runs and 3-RBI’s.
Atlanta is still up 2-games-to-1 in the best-of-seven series with Game 4 tonight at 5:08 on Fox as Clayton Kershaw goes up against Bryse Wilson.

Tampa Bay tied it in the 4th on a 2-run home run by Randy Arozarena. George Springer untied it in the 5th on his first homer of the series and Houston held on for the victory.

Kyle Lewis selected as Sporting News AL Rookie of the Year
It’s been a while since we had post-season honors coming a Mariner way, but then again, we added Kyle Lewis this year…
The Seattle centerfielder was selected the American League Rookie of the Year by The Sporting News. Lewis led the Mariners in hits (54), homers (11), walks (34), on-base percentage (.364) and total bases (90). Kyle was named on 55 of 92 ballots of American League players.
Lewis is the first Mariners player to win a Sporting News rookie award since Rafael Soriano in 2003 when the magazine gave out an award for the rookie pitcher and position player in each league.
Former Seahawk Cliff Avril named Legend of the Year
The Seahawks created a new award last year to honor the former players for their work off the field in retirement. The first recipient was Jacob Green. He had the honor of announcing Cliff Avril as the second recipient of the Legend of the Year Award…
The Seahawks donated 5-thousand dollars to a charity of Avril’s choice with a matching 5-thousand from American Family Insurance. The money will go to the Cliff Avril Foundation, founded in 2014 to help educate youths about healthy living. Avril says he was inspired after the loss of his grandmother and his mother’s diagnosis with diabetes.
