That 3:30 start must include the pregame show as the latest I've seen and heard still has a 4:20 start (with NLCS starting at a reasonable start of 8:00)

What a game!  Plus a game lasting more than 4 hours where one swing could've made it reach five hours removed from the first pitch.  Nevertheless, Houston survives & Takes Game 1 with a 5-4 victory.  Several deep shots, but Boston & Houston will be back at it on Saturday afternoon.  Both teams are really just getting started!

The Red Sox has made Postseason History today by Getting NOT 1 BUT 2 Grand Slams in One Game in the Postseason and IN 2 INNINGS. As of writing this post they are up 9-3 on the Astros at the 7th Inning Stretch.

Austin Riley was the hero for Atlanta with a homer and he drove in the winning run in the ninth in the Braves' 3-2 win in game 1. Max Scherzer vs. Ian Anderson tonight.

Atlanta goes up 2-0 now with a 5-4 win thanks to the night's hero Eddie Rosario. Of course, everyone in Atlanta remembers the 1996 World Series, so they're not lighting the victory cigars just yet.

Oh, and not to mention last year's NLCS.

Boston hits six homers, including Kyle Schwarber's grand slam en route to a 12-3 win over Houston and a 2-1 lead in the ALCS.

And I saw in an ESPN note that Red Sox manager Alex Cora gave some heat to his pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez for mimicking Houston Astros star shortstop Carlos Correa's "My time" celebration. Why exactly did he do that?

It's probably related to Cora & Correa's connection when Alex was a member of the Astros staff.  Of course, that's what I heard.  Eduardo should just double-down; IMO, while Rodriguez probably could've taken the high road, I didn't have a problem with it

Atlanta-Los Angeles: Charlie Morton vs. Walker Buehler today. The Dodgers will start reliever Julio Urias in tomorrow's game 4 against Atlanta's Huascar Ynoa, whose 18.00 postseason ERA may stir concerns from Braves fans.

Not a good day to have a series lead. Atlanta blows a 5-2 game in the eighth, with the Dodgers winning Game 3. The Red Sox have allowed Houston to even their series by coughing up seven runs in the top of the ninth.

Last night's game could be harbinger Atlanta fans don't want to think about. Cody Bellinger and Mookie Betts, currently the two most hated men in Atlanta, provided the return of the Dodgers' confidence and swagger they lacked in games 1 and 2. This could carry over from here on.

It didn't help that Atlanta sorta got lucky in Games 1 & 2.  It's crazy too; when the Braves erased that lead in the second game, I kept saying to myself, "Atlanta is going to steal this game the same way they won in the first game".  Base hit, RISP, Bottom of the ninth, and it's over.  Los Angeles could've won either one of those games (or both).  The Dodgers played better, I believe (and several people thought so).  The final score is what counts though.

I refrained from saying how the ALCS was not going to go back to Houston.  I was right in a big way, so I'll refrain from saying Atlanta is done.  They could win today and that could be a big deal.  Boston should be okay but I don't think as much as advertised if they blow it later.  Looks like we have a series in the NLCS (and we definitely do in the ALCS)!
