All four of the Major League Baseball Best 5 Division Series ran on Tuesday in two NLDS Games 1 and one ALDS Game 2. The Braves began the day with a Game 1 victory over the Marlins before the Astros returned home on the road to another athletics victory. Raise home ringed the ALDS against the Yankees four times and won 18 games with a Game 2 victory. Padres fell to the Dodgers with a nightcap.
Let’s take a look at the games of the day and what you need to know about each.
MLB playoff score
The Dodgers take Game 1.Padres’ arm in trouble
When the Dodgers crossed the Padres to win Game 1, four Dodgers reliefs were combined to not allow a run with one hit in five innings, with Cody Bellinger and Justin Turner each scoring two outs in six innings. .. Historically, home teams taking Game 1 of the Top 5 Postseason MLB Series have a 74% chance of winning the series in question.
But given the Padres’ pitching strait, the Dodgers may be an even heavier favorite. Right-handed Mike Clevinger was added late to the roster and surprise game 1 starter after missing the final day of the regular season and the Wild Cards series due to arm problems. Unfortunately, in the second inning, only two pitches of Clevinger were removed with an undisclosed injury. Keep in mind that starter Dinelson Lamet also remains on the sidelines due to an injury to his biceps. Anyway, Clevinger’s injury worked hard on Padres’ bullpen-this used nine San Diego pitchers. And this happens after the San Diego bullpen leans hard in the process of a three-game series that beat the Cardinals in the first round. Even more ominous for the Padres is that the LDS schedule does not include holidays. Padres is in a bad situation as he goes down 1-0 and has tense staff.
Backfire on the Yankees opener strategy
The Yankees chose to hire rookie right-handed Deivi Garcia as Starter Game 2, but it turned out that manager Aaron Boone was using Garcia as the game’s opener. The 21-year-old threw only one inning (and allowed solo homer to Randia Rosarena) before the southpaw JA Happ entered the second inning. Happ allowed the Yankees into the 5-1 hole, allowing another four runs through a two-run home run pair of Mike Zunino and Manuel Margot. Boone’s pitching plan backfired. After Happ left, Rays added two more runs, and the Yankees didn’t dig themselves out with a loss of 7-5. Tampa evened the ALDS 1-1 with a victory.
But Giancarlo Stanton made things interesting with just one strong bat swing. Stanton hit a 458-foot three-run homer from Rays starter Tyler Glasnow, keeping the club within one run in the fourth inning.Stanton returns home twice on Tuesday to Lou Gehrig and Reggie Jackson. Only the Yankees hit home runs in four consecutive postseason games.. Learn more about Raise’s victory..
Valdes leads Springer 2-0 to Astros
Left-handed Framber Valdez contributed to the Astros during the regular season. Obviously that is the case in the playoffs. After a big relief outing in the Wild Cards series, Valdes kicked off his first postseason against athletics on Tuesday. He was pitched enough to push the Astros to a 2-0 advantage in the Best of Five series.
Valdes hit four batters and hit A with five hits, one walk and seven innings to two runs. He threw 103 pitches in the afternoon and made six swing-and-misses with a curved ball. Meanwhile, his fastball averaged about 93 mph.
Valdes may have accelerated the Astros’ efforts, but also received a big match from outfielder George Springer. He returned home twice and drove on three runs. Springer currently has five post-season home runs at Dodger Stadium, lagging behind Reggie Jackson. According to ESPN Stats & Info..Neither Springer nor Jackson have ever played in LA
Catcher Martin Maldonado also hit a home run. The Astros can complete the series sweep on Wednesday afternoon.
The Braves power up and pull away after the temper burns
The· Marlins And that Braves The action of the day began with a pre- and post-contest characterized by a subsequent rise in temperament. Ronald Acuña The junior who hit the lead-off homer at the first bottom Sandy Alcantara Third pitch. Acuña seems to have made an exception to Alcantara’s false offer, and both sides bent over before he took the base. (He later scored from the beginning.)
Alcantara had no reason to deliberately attack Acuña, but it is worth noting that both have a history. Acuña was hit by 19 pitches in his career. Four of them were thrown by Marlins pitchers. No other team has hit Acuna more than once.
The FS1 broadcast interviewed Braves manager Brian Snitker during the game. When asked about the hit by pitch, he said, “If I tell you exactly what I think, I’ll probably cause problems.” Obviously, the Braves believe that the Marlins deliberately threw them at Acuña.
Going forward, the lascivious Marlins advanced to one-third of the three runs, leading 4-1. The Braves regained 2 in the bottom half, but the lead remained 4-3 towards the Marlins’ 7th place. That seemed like a big deal at the time, given that the Marlins were 28-0 in the regular season on their way to the seventh.
And again, the Braves have 13 reversal victories this season and have serious offensive firepower. They showed it in the 7th place. The back-to-back single started things to chase after the starter Sandy Alcantara. It could be argued that the bullpen should have taken over, and certainly Alcantara just gave up the single to Ronald Acuña, and the fourth time he saw him was a slightly avoided bullet.
Marlins then nailed Imigalcia, Right-handed, face Freddie Freeman, A person who absolutely destroys the right holder. It really worked. Freeman was based on fielder’s choice.But then Marcell Ozuna After single to connect it Travis Darnaud I broke things with 3 run shots:
Garcia has had a big problem giving up long balls in the last few years (32HR was allowed in 159 2/3 innings before this season), but so far with 15 regular season innings. I passed two innings. Postseason without allowing a single homer. Perhaps it was just a matter of time against this powerful Braves attack.
Acuna, Freeman, Ozuna, and even Dansby Swanson And Adam Duvall After many years, the huge season on D’Arnaud’s plate is flying under radar. He hit .321 / .386 / .533 with 8 doubles, 9 home runs and 34 RBIs in 44 regular season games.
In the second half of the seventh, Swanson added a two-run shot, and suddenly the Braves didn’t even have to sweat the second inning. The difference here is 6 runs and 7th place, with the Braves leading 1-0 in the Best 5 Series.
Things to keep in mind when the series moves away: Max fried Only 70 pitches were thrown at Braves, and there were no days off in this round, so we could see the first place come back with a short break in Game 5. By speculation, Fried can handle it. In the case of the Marlins, Alcantara went to the 95th pitch. It’s not a ton and he’s probably okay to come back, but he’ll compromise more between the two.
