Ian Anderson and three relievers combined on a 2-hit shutout of Cincinnati today as the Braves won 5-nothing to wrap up the Wild Card series. Marcell Ozuna and Adam Duvall hit homers to play add-on in the 8th for Atlanta, who now awaits the winner of Chicago and Miami for Game 1 of the NLDS Tuesday. The Cubs and Marlins were rained out yesterday and will try to make up Game 2 today at 11:08am on ABC.
Chad Pinder’s 2-run, 5th-inning single proved to be the game-winner as Oakland beat Chicago 6-4. White Sox pitchers walked 9 batters, including two bases-loaded walks in a 4-run 4th inning. The A’s will face Houston in the ALDS with Game 1 on Monday.
San Diego won a wild, back-and-forth, 7-home run affair over St. Louis 11-9 to even its National League Wild Card series at a game-apiece. Trailing 6-2 in the 6th, Fernando Tatis, Jr. hit a 3-run home run followed by a solo shot from Manny Machado to tie it at 6. Then in the 7th, Will Myers and Tatis, Jr. hit back-to-back homers to take a 9-6 lead. The Cardinals came back with 2-runs in the 8th to make it 9-6. Myers homered for the second tim in the bottom of the 8th to make it 11-8. St. Louis’ Paul Goldschmidt homered in the 9th but that’s as close as the Cardinals could get. Game 3 is today at 4:08pm on ESPN.
Los Angeles advanced to the National League Division Series with a 3-nothing win over Milwaukee last night. Clayton Kershaw was dominant over 8-innings, allowing no-runs on 3-hits with 13-strikeouts and one-walk. L-A’s scoring came in the 5th on an RBI-single by Austin Barnes and a 2-run double by Mookie Betts. The Dodgers await the winner of San Diego and St. Louis for the NLDS beginning Tuesday.
