Tuesday did not disappoint in the MLB playoffs as both games were nail-biters throughout all nine innings.
In Game 4 of the American League Championship Series, the Houston Astros struck back after allowing the Boston Red Sox to win Games 2 and 3. It took all the way until the ninth inning for the Astros to score 7 runs, taking a 9-2 lead, which is the most runs scored in a post-season inning in franchise history for the Astros. With the series now tied 2-2, the Red Sox look to bounce back on Wednesday afternoon.
The Los Angeles Dodgers got their first win of the National League Championship Series, defeating the Atlanta Braves 6-5. For the majority of Game 3, it appeared that the Braves were easily on track for a win until Cody Bellinger hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to tie the game for the Dodgers. Mookie Betts drove in the winning run, giving the Dodgers the 6-5 win. Today, the Dodgers will host the Braves for Game 4, being down 2-1 in the series.
