The Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals are both in the ALCS, with unlikely sweeps in their respective ALDS matchups.
CBS Local Sports breaks down the top starting pitchers for your fantasy baseball draft.
It looks like the World Series will go the distance and seven games for the second straight year.
Brad Lincoln allowed two hits and a run in six innings, Andrew McCutchen hit a three-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates won for the sixth time in seven games with a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
Max Scherzer struck out 15 – the most by a Detroit pitcher in 40 years – and the Tigers rallied for him with three runs in the seventh inning to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Sunday.
It is a statistical fact that when the Pirates sellout PNC Park, or even come close, they perform better on the field. Whether there’s a correlation between the two, or if it’s just a fluke, fans may never know; but it held up once again Saturday night as the Pirates beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2.
