The Fox NLCS Goes 7

October 20, 2018

Tonight there will be a decisive seventh game in the NLCS with the Los Angeles Dodgers facing the Milwaukee Brewers, in Milwaukee.

Again Fox gets a seventh game in an LCS or World Series, this a fourth straight and I believe fourth in five possibilities for the Joe Buck/ John Smoltz broadcast team.

In 12 “head to head” years (2007-2018), Fox LCS have gone a total of 74 games for an average of 6.16 games (7, 5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 6, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7) while TBS has just 61 games for a 5.08 average. (4, 7, 5, 6, 6, 4, 6, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5).

Additionally the Fox/ Joe Buck series winner is (10-1) in the subsequent World Series vs the TBS winner as only Buck’s favorite team, the Cardinals in ’11 won the World Series after winning a TBS LCS.

 

This will be the Dodgers’ first road 7th game in an LCS. The Brewers will be at home for the first time in what will be just their second game 7.

On a late Saturday afternoon in 1972 an L.A. team, the Lakers clinched a “semi” en route to their first L.A. based crown at Milwaukee vs the Bucks.

Tonight will be just the second home game 7 in Milwaukee sports, the other resulted in a Yankees World Series win vs the Braves in 1958. The year before the Braves won game 7 and the title at Yankee Stadium vs the Yankees as the great Ed Mathews stepped on third base for a force play to end it.
