Urías’ availability, which can throw late innings in stressful situations, could leave him in the bullpen for the start of the game.

NLCS Game 7 follows the American League Championship Series pennant decision game on Saturday night. This is the third time in history that both Championship Series have been extended to seven games. After establishing LCS in 1969, MLB expanded it from the Best of Five series to the Best of 7 series. It took nearly 20 years for a pair of Game 7 to play, which happened in 2003. It also took a year for Boston to defeat New York and St. Louis to beat Houston in 2004 to bear fruit again.
Since then, only the other six LCSs have participated in seven games: 2006 NLCS (St. Louis wins), 2007 ALCS (Boston), 2008 ALCS (Tampa Bay), 2012 NLCS (San Francisco), 2017 ALCS (Houston) , 2018 NLCS (Los Angeles).
“That’s the purpose of your life,” Roberts said.
His contemporaries don’t see it that way at all.
“Round 7 is another baseball game,” Snicker said. “I’m not in 4th and 1st place, so let’s play the first match. This is a baseball match, so we have to treat it that way.”
