Early Postseason Coverage

Yesterday, there was quite a bit of postseason baseball as all 8 playoff contenders squared off. For the Rays and Rangers, it was Game 2, after the Rays won 9-0 in Game 1. Rookie Matt Moore was fantastic, tossing 7 shutout innings and allowing just 2 hits. However, last night was a bit different as the Rangers rallied in a 5-run 4th inning capped by a 2-run single by Mike Napoli (right). The Rangers would win the game 8-6 and tie the series at 1-1. After the Tigers-Yankees game was rained out Friday night, it resumed last night and the Yankees would take advantage of a Robinson Cano grand slam and beat the Tigers 9-3, so the Stankees lead that series 1-0. In Game 1 of the NLDS, the Brewers beat the D-Backs 4-1 in the only "pitching game" of the playoffs so far as Yovani Gallardo was very sharp. The Phillies and Cardinals squared off at Citizens Bank Park and the Phillies won 11-6, aided by a 3-run homer by Ryan Howard and a 2-run homer by Raul Ibanez, as the Phillies lead the series 1-0. The first "Conor Says" is coming up later!
