    Looks like you are right.

    Did either pitcher's at bat in game one or two amount to anything?

    yes
    winning the all star game would give that league home field advantage for the world series
    this was done to give more meaning and importance to the all star game

    That rule is no longer in effect according to the google search.

    By the way, tonight is the big night for the two aces, too bad it is a dh night.

    Walking the bases loaded isn't a great way to start a game, but still no runs given up.

    Just lots of pitches.

    OK, two runs given up. Totally screwed up first inning.

    Wow, what an inning. Very unusual 3rd run scoring. Lots of errors abound. E3 for run 3.


    At the end of the first inning, ibyt looks like Kershaw is pretty good.

    Turning a double play. Been a long time since I've seen one of those.

    Last time was probably Cey to Lopes to Garvey.

    25 points in one game. Back in my day this was extremely rare.

    Most scores were something like 3-1. 13-12 would be a football score.

    great game last night
    giving Kershaw a quick 4 run lead almost guarantees a win
    but did not happen
    home runs galore
    what figured to be a low scoring game turned out to be a slugfest
    now LA has to sweep
    I'm still going with the dodgers
    only because I have always been a National league fan and don't like the dh rule

    Houston Astros, Houston Astros, Houston Astros number one....


    Don't think the Oilers will mind.

    the Dodgers with the highest payroll in baseball lose to Houston with the eighteenth highest payroll

    Houston will have to spend to keep their team together in the future
    early Las Vegas line has Dodgers favored to win 2018 series with Houston second

    Who would have believed a few years ago that the last 3 World Series Champs would be the Royals, the Cubs, and the Astros?

    If you look at groups of high paid teams and the rest, how many teams are there in each group?
