Postseason Dose: Waiting Game

We saw a thrilling ninth inning on Tuesday night, but the Red Sox escaped against the Yankees to head to the ALCS, which means that none of the four Division Series matchups went to a deciding fifth game. And so, we’re forced to play the waiting game for back-to-back days before the Dodgers and Brewers play Game 1 of the NLCS on Friday at Miller Park. The good news is that we’re guaranteed at least one game a day between the NLCS and ALCS through next Wednesday.

While we take some time to recharge the batteries and maybe check out some Arizona Fall League action, there were still some notable news items on an otherwise idle Wednesday…

Fresh off his one-inning relief appearance in Game 4 against the Yankees, Chris Sale is officially set to start for the Red Sox in Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday in Boston. Meanwhile, Justin Verlander will start for the Astros to complete the marquee matchup. Sale yielded two runs over 5 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts in his Game 1 start against the Yankees in the ALDS. Verlander allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts in Game 1 of the ALDS
