Are you as excited as Josiah Gray about the fact that there will be four postseason games today?
Looking forward to one of the most exciting days of the Postseason #4GameFriday— Josiah Gray (@JGrayy_) October 8, 2021
Former Nationals’ prospect Lucas Giolito starts for the Sox against the Astros’ lefty Frambel Valdez at 2:07 PM ET in Minute Maid Park.
Next up, the Atlanta Braves and Milwaukee Brewers meet up in
Miller Park American Family Field, in the first game of their best-of-five NLDS matchup. That game gets started at 4:37 PM with Charlie Morton going for the visitors against Brewers’ right-hander Corbin Burnes.
After that, the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays play the 2nd game of their ALDS series with Chris Sale starting for the Sox against Rays’ right-hander Shane Baz at 7:02 PM ET after the home team’s 5-0 win last night in Tropicana Field.
Then at 9:37 PM ET the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants start their NLDS series with Walker Buehler on the mound in Oracle Park against Giants’ right-hander Logan Webb, capping off a long day of baseball.
The Washington Nationals are done for the year, but there is plenty of baseball to be played over the next few weeks as the remaining clubs decide who takes home the Commissioner’s Trophy as the first full-season champion since the Nats won it all in 2019.
Enjoy your day of baseball...
