Yesterday we had two pretty good games—at least, until the eighth inning of the Boston Red Sox/Houston Astros game, when Boston slapped Houston with a five-run frame. However, both series are still close. Boston is up 2-1 on the defending World Champions, and the Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers are all knotted up at 2-2, ensuring a return to Wisconsin for at least one more game.

Anyway, NLCS Game 5 begins at 4:05pm, and ALCS Game 4 opens up at 7:39pm. The following is the lineup for the NLCS contest. This will be updated with the ALCS lineups when they are posted.

Root for the Brewers, Royals fans. It’s only right. After all, 24% of their 25-man NLCS roster are former Royals.
