Houston Astros

Morning Mound Visit: It's beginning to look a lot like a Rays, Braves World Series


For the Astros to come back, they would have to become just the second team in MLB history to win a seven-game series after dropping the first three.


Something tells me the Astros wouldn’t enrapture the hearts of baseball fans in quite the same way as the 2004 Red Sox .


To end Houston’s season, Tampa will counter with Tyler Glasnow who has struck out 20 batters in 13 1 ⁄ 3 innings though he has given up six runs and four homers.


Ben Clemens | FanGraphs : It used to be that a hitter would automatically take on a 3-0 pitch, but Ronald Acuña Jr. is nearly the opposite.


Acuña has swung at five 3-0 pitches already this postseason, and though those swings haven’t benefited him yet, it shows how careful pitchers must be at all times when he’s in the box.


Zach Kram | The Ringer : The Dodgers are in a tight spot in part because they allowed the Braves to score four runs in the ninth inning of Game 1.
