There are four division series overlapping at different points today. The day opened with the defending champion, Houston Astros, going up against the Indians. It was a heavyweight bout featuring Corey Kluber and Justin Verlander on the mound for their respective teams. Kluber got knocked out early and the Astros are in attack mode. The Brewers are hosting the Rockies in Game #2 of their NLDS series where the Brewers walked-off in dramatic fashion in the 10th inning last night. The Redsox and Yankees get the primetime spot, of course, and the Dodgers and Braves have the late night finish in Los Angeles.
It looks like the Dodgers strategy of pitching Ryu last night in Game #1 of the NLDS while saving Clayton Kershaw for Game #2 could work out great for the Dodgers who shutout the Braves last night.
