Anything's possible, but keep in mind that HOU's rotation will be perfectly lined up and TOR will presumably use Gausman and Manoah in games 1 and 2 of the first series and so neither will be available on full rest for game 1 of the ALDS.Toronto is 14-5 in September. They are capable of beating Houston in a five game series (if that ends up being the DS matchup).
Seattle and the Rays racing to the bottom. BAL still has a shot.Seattle's offense has completely disappeared. They've lost 5 of 6 and scored a single run in 4 of those games against two pretty mediocre pitching staffs. They need to right the ship quick, or it could get tense in the PNW.
The Suarez injury has been brutal for them.Seattle's offense has completely disappeared. They've lost 5 of 6 and scored a single run in 4 of those games against two pretty mediocre pitching staffs. They need to right the ship quick, or it could get tense in the PNW.
I expected the Mariners to Mariner but they have a 4 game cushion and an easy schedule with 14 to go.Seattle's offense has completely disappeared. They've lost 5 of 6 and scored a single run in 4 of those games against two pretty mediocre pitching staffs. They need to right the ship quick, or it could get tense in the PNW.
And now Julio Rodriquez just had to come out of the game.
He was lucky it was just a solo shot. He started the inning by hitting Josh Rojas in the foot, but then Rojas came off the bag stealing 2nd and LA won the crew chief challenge.Dodgers fans are going to love Kimbrel in the playoffs, gave up a go ahead HR just now.
I don't know who is spinning wheat into gold with those pitchers but if I were Chaim, I would be waving big checks in their direction. Look at how bad Austin Voth was before he got there midseason:The Orioles have had a starting pitching run rivalling their glory days of the 90s, 2 of the 3 games against a sleeping Astros team.
This would be an all timer, when you factor in that the Orioles have a fairly tough schedule too. Maybe the Orioles will get lucky and the Yankees will take a break.Yeah, Seattle really might blow this, which would be rough. They’re just falling apart at the absolute wrong time. And it would be doubly rough for Baltimore to be the team to step up since they weren’t supposed to be this good yet.
Now it's the Mariners involved in a wild one. And it's only the 6th.This Astros/Orioles game is crazy, now 11-10 bottom nine after HOU scored 4 in the top of the 9th and Odor answered with a solo HR to lead off the inning.
It was bad. A really, really bad inning. Ended up letting up 11 runs. Should have been out of it at 4, but Kelenic lost a ball in the sun and everything went to deeper turd from there.I‘ve never seen so many mound visits in one inning in my life. Scott Servais was wearing out a path walking to the mound so much.
The Os have 10 games left and they are 5 games back basically. They lose the tiebreaker to Tampa too. Not impossible but getting to the point where it seems pretty unlikely they could catch either.If the O's had swept the Astros it would be real panic time in Seattle. Seattle is still OK, although this further hurts a run at home field advantage in WC round.
If I'm a Mariner fan I still knock on wood just in case.
