Braves Lead (3-1), Astros Lead (3-2) In Their Respective LCS

October 21, 2021

5 time N.L. “div” series opponents, (the Braves won the first 3, going (9-1) while Houston won the last 2, going (6-3) in games), the Atlanta Braves, up (3-1) in the NLCS vs the Dodgers for a second straight year and Houston Astros, up (3-2) and heading home, vs the Boston Red Sox are each one win away from a World Series berth.

After a “horror show” loss in #3, (MY stat that teams down (2-0) in a Dodgers’ best of 7 are now (12-1) in a home 3rd game and that man Bellinger again) Edward Rosario, the game 2 star had 4 hits including 2 HR’s as Atlanta scored 9 and won (9-2) at Dodger Stadium and lead the NLCS vs L.A. 3 games to 1.

Last year in a “bubble/neutral” Texas venue, L.A. overcame deficits in games 5 and 7 and took the series in 7 games, in route to a first crown in 32 years. This time games 6 and 7, if necessary would be in Atlanta.

Meanwhile the Astros also scored 9 runs, doing so for a second straight game/win/late over, this an Alvarez led (9-1) “cruise job,” after a 7 run 9th yielded a (9-2) win that squared the series in game 4.

There have been other contributors for the Astros, now a win away from a third straight odd year W.S. appearance, after but one “app” in the (no longer) “Fall Classic,” in the franchise’s first 54 completed seasons (’62-2016, no W.S. in 1994), that in another “odd year,” 2005.
