The Dodgers and Astros are through to the next round, thanks mostly to their bats. One and possibly two teams will join them later today. Here are the key storylines as the MLB playoffs move forward:
LSU got a much-needed win, but squeaking past Florida doesn’t tell us all that much. I take a look at that game and everything else in the SEC in my weekly report for CBS Local.
Saturday will be just the fourth night game in Michigan Stadium history. A school like Penn State has no problem hosting games under the lights. Why does the University Michigan—its administration, head coach, and many of its fans—reject the idea? What do players think? I sought answers in an in-depth story for Scout.
Thanks to starting pitcher meltdowns, we just witnessed the highest-scoring wild-card round ever. The Yankees and Diamondbacks advanced and the divisional matchups, which begin today, are set. Read the “Five Things” you need to know in my latest story for CBS Local:
Last weekend’s games weren’t great, but we don’t let that affect our performance. We look ahead to the big games this coming weekend. Baby boot camp, Olive Garden, and specters are also discussed.
LSU lost at home to Troy, calling into question their head coach’s capabilities. Those questions are getting louder in Knoxville after Tennessee was smacked by a Georgia team that, along with Alabama and perhaps Auburn, is separating itself from the rest of the SEC. Read all about it in my latest SEC Report for CBS Local.
Next week, the Washington Nationals will begin a playoff series for the fourth time in six years. They have yet to win a series. With a healthy Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg—plus Max Scherzer, Daniel Murphy, and others—this year could be different. I wrote about it in my final regular season column for CBS Local. Starting next Thursday, I’ll be recapping the playoffs with a “Five Things You Missed” column.
