Championship Series Threads: NLCS Game 2, ALCS Game 3


Now we are in the middle of it.

After winning 4-2 on Monday night, the Tampa Bay Rays lead the Houston Astros 2-0.

At NL, the Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play Game 2 again after the 5-1 Braves win on Monday.

Dodgers vs Braves • 6:05 pm ET, Game 2 – FS1

Globe Life Park • Arlington, Texas

RHP Ian Anderson (Postseason: 2-0, 0.00) vs RHP Tony Gonsolin (Postseason: 2-2, 2.31)

Rookie Ian Anderson takes the Braves mound in Game 2. The right-handed player made his big league debut on August 26th and pitched to 1.95 ERA in the last few weeks of the season. In the postseason so far, Anderson has beaten 17 with just 11.2 IP and will continue to do so tonight.

The Dodgers were forced to scratch the ace, as if the defeat of Game 1 wasn’t enough Clayton Kershaw In Game 2, left-handed people suffer from back cramps.

Instead, LA sends the correct Tony Gon Sorin for his post-season appearance. Gonsolin faced Atlanta only once, made four innings and allowed only one run. This is an effort that the Dodgers will certainly appreciate tonight.

Raise vs Astros • 8:40 pm ET, Game 3 – TBS

Petco Park • San Diego, CA

LHP Ryan Yarbrough (Postseason: 0-0, 3.60) vs RHP Jose Archidi (Postseason: 0-0, 5.19)

Left-handed Ryan Yarbrough will make his first post-season start, but this is not his first post-season appearance. In Game 4 of the ALDS, Yarbrough lost to the Yankees 5 to 1, threw 5 innings and allowed 2 runs with 6 hits.

The Astros will compete with right-handed Jose Urkidi, who is aiming to turn the postseason around in Game 3. Urquidy’s ALWC Start vs. Twins was effective. He allowed only one earned run on 4.1 IP. The same was not true for the second start (ALDS Game 3). He allowed four earned runs (and four home runs) with just 4.1 IP.
