Chacin, Brewers blank Rockies 4-0, take 2-0 lead in NLDS

Colorado tied the game with two runs in the ninth inning after trailing 2-0 going into the inning. And they never looked back.

One year after he was pounded by Houston in his playoff debut, Sale took a four-hit shutout into the sixth inning.

But Kimbrel rebounded to get the final three outs, striking out red-hot Yankees batter Luke Voit to seal the victory. In the AL we see the reigning champion Astros pitted against the Indians and the age old rivalry between the Red Sox and the Yankees!

Game 2 is Saturday night, with Boston starting another pitcher trying to overcome a history of postseason struggles - left-hander David Price is 0-8 in his career as a starter in the playoffs. He'll face Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka of Japan.

"Everybody did something to help this team win today", said Altuve, the 2017 AL Most Valuable Player. But it was a bunch of longballs to put the Astros ahead in this best-of-five series.


When the Colorado Rockies take on the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 of the National League Division Series on Sunday afternoon, the weather forecast in Denver is calling for fall-like conditions. By the way, this is the first time these two teams have faced each other in the postseason since the historic events of the 2004 postseason where the Red Sox beat the Yankees in the ALCS after being down 3 games to none to not only win the series, but they went on to sweep the World Series for their first Championship since 1918!

Hernan Perez doubled in a run in the fourth inning and Milwaukee added three more runs in the eighth.

Yelich recorded two hits, including the two-run home run responsible for opening the game's scoring, before Moose ended it in the opener.

Kershaw struck out three and walked none to remain unbeaten all-time against Atlanta. Carlos Gonzalez knows it and even mentioned it in his postgame comments after Friday's Game 2 shutout loss in Milwaukee.
