Some Decisive Game Notes

October 9, 2019

In today’s first of two decisive, division series 5th games,(last night the Rays beat Verlander, to force a decisive 5th at Houston tomorrow night) the St. Louis Cardinals visit the Atlanta Braves.

St. Louis is (14-6) in decisive games of a series. The Braves are (4-5), with the road team prevailing in the first and last three of those nine games, starting with the then Milwaukee Braves, winning the ’57 World Series at Yankee Stadium. (The Yankees led by Bob Turley overcame a (3-1) series deficit and won #7 at Milwaukee’s County Stadium, the next year.

Tonight, the L.A. Dodgers host the Washington Nationals. The Dodgers are (7-5) in decisive games while the Nationals/Montreal Expos franchise is (1-4), all in decisive 5th games.

The franchise has never been in a best of 7 series and won in its lone previous decisive series game, played on the road.
