Major League Baseball’s postseason continued Monday with a slate of three crucial games. The Boston Red Sox were the first team to punch their ticket to the League Championship Series, as they clinched their ALDS matchup over the Rays with a Game 4 walk-off win at Fenway Park. In the National League, both the San Francisco Giants and Atlanta Braves took 2-1 NLDS leads with wins over the Dodgers and Brewers.
Monday’s playoff schedule
PPD: Astros at White Sox (Rained out, will be played Tuesday) — HOU leads 2-1
FINAL: Braves 3, Brewers 0 (Box score) — ATL leads 2-1
The Braves now hold a 2-1 advantage, meaning another win will send them to the NL Championship Series, where they’d await either the San Francisco Giants or the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Braves received another strong outing from their pitching staff, as had been the case in each of the first two games of the series. Starter Ian Anderson chucked five shutout innings, holding the Brewers to three hits and no walks. He struck out six batters on 84 pitches before being lifted for pinch-hitter Joc Pederson.
That decision paid off for the Braves, as Pederson launched a three-run shot off Brewers reliever Adrian Houser to give Atlanta its lead:
FINAL: Red Sox 6-5 (Box score) — BOS wins series 3-1
After winning Game 1 in rather convincing fashion, the Tampa Bay Rays are the first team eliminated from the divisional round.
The Red Sox closed things down in front of the Fenway faithful Monday night…
The Red Sox had a 5-0 lead through the third inning while starter Eduardo Rodriguez threw zeroes on the board through five innings…..the Rays’ bullpen after the third held steady and the Tampa offense chipped away. A two-run Wander Franco homer made it 5-3 in the sixth. In the eighth, two doubles before a Randy Arozarena single meant the game was tied. Red Sox reliever Garrett Whitlock would come in to get some major outs to move things to the bottom of the ninth, still tied at five.
In the bottom of the ninth, perhaps fittingly, the red-hot Enrique Hernández delivered the game-winning sac fly, giving Boston a 6-5 win and the club’s second walk-off victory in a row.
FINAL: Giants 1, Dodgers 0 (Box score) — SF leads 2-1
Giants one win away from NLCS
Thanks to Evan Longoria’s solo home run and clutch bullpen work, the Giants are one win away from their first trip to the NLCS since winning the World Series in 2014. They hung on for a 1-0 win in Game 3 at windy Dodger Stadium on Monday.
Max Scherzer was incredible coming off three subpar starts, holding San Francisco to just the Longoria solo homer and striking out 10 in seven innings. He is the first pitcher in baseball history with a double-digit strikeout game in the postseason for three different franchises (Tigers, Nationals, Dodgers). A tough-luck loss.
