I’m guessing this is a first: each of the four teams going into the League Championship Series have a MOT on the roster. That comes after the Boston Red Sox held off the host NY Yankees, 4-3 top move on.Ian Kinsler started at second base and gave the team a 2-0 lead with an RBI double in four at-bats, his second two-bagger of the series. He also scored a run.
The Sox will host Alex Bregman and the defending World Series champion Houston Astros beginning Saturday night.
Meanwhile, over in the NL, Joc Pederson and the LA Dodgers visit Ryan Braun and the Milwaukee Brewers beginning Friday.
Of course this scenario guarantees that once again there will be opposing JMLs in the fall classic (Pederson v. Bregman last year).
