Sunday saw both road teams regain home-field advantage as they rallied for wins.

This is the second day with all four divisional series games on the schedule. The Astros, Braves, Dodgers and Yankees have the opportunity to close out their series and move on to the Championship Series.

Braves at Cardinals - Game 3 (Braves lead 2-1)

The Cardinals had the battery of Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina and for 7⅔ innings, it was like old times against the Braves.

Wainwright did not just throw 100 pitches, he made 120 in his outstanding performance on Sunday.

Leading 1-0, the Cardinals got two outs in the ninth inning and then the Braves did something they had done in a while.

Lost in all of this is that the Cardinals have scored only one run in the last two games.

The Braves will try to close out their series today, as of this writing they have not announced their starting pitcher. The Cardinals will have Dakota Hudson on the mound.

Dodgers at Nationals - Game 3 (Dodgers lead 2-1)

The Dodgers made their comeback a little earlier, scoring seven runs in the sixth inning to take an 8-2 lead. They would on and win 10-4. You can read TBLA’s recap here.
