Both League Championship Series are in play on Saturday, with the ALCS starting the day off with Game 2, followed by the Dodgers getting the NLCS underway in Atlanta.

Boston Red Sox at Houston Astros (HOU leads 1-0)

The Red Sox will look to even the series against the Astros after Houston won Game 1, 5-4. Boston was leading through the first half of this game, leading 3-1 entering the bottom of the sixth inning.

Former Dodger Enrique Hernandez continued his insane October, as he finished with four hits, including 2 home runs and some amazing defensive highlights. He’s been pretty good for the Red Sox this week.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as the usual suspects for the Astros did their damage. Jose Altuve hit a two-run homer to tie the game in the sixth inning. In the bottom of the seventh, Carlos Correa hit the go-ahead home run, sending Minute Maid Park into a frenzy.

Game 2 info

Pitching probables: Nathan Eovaldi (BOS) vs. Luis Garcia (HOU)

TV: FOX

Time: 1:20 p.m. PT


Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta Braves (Game 1)

The Dodgers and Braves will kick off their series later this evening. We know who is going for the Braves, as Max Fried will get the start. As of right now, we don’t know who will be starting for the Dodgers.

If Max Scherzer is up for it, he’ll be starting. If not, it will be a bullpen game with Tony Gonsolin likely receiving a bulk of the innings.

Pitching probables: TBA (LA) vs. Max Fried (ATL)
