TSM Game of the Night

Here are the lineups for the shows at noon:

College of Sports Media Game of the Night:

The Los Angeles Dodgers were one out away from tying the NLCS at two games a piece, but thanks to a Jimmy Rollins walk off single, tonight they face elimination. Oh and for anyone wondering, the Dodgers got eliminated in five games last season by the very same Philadelphia Phillies. Phillies lefty Cole Hamels was on the mound the night LA was booted last year and coincidentally he gets the start tonight. Although this post-season’s version of Hamels is nothing compared to his dominance last season. In 2008 he was 4-0 with a minuscule 1.80 ERA. Up to this point he’s 1-1 with a 6.97 ERA. Ouch! In game one of this series, Hamels pitched well, but he still gave up four runs in only five and a third innings. What’s driving Philly right now is their offensive and no one has been better then power hitting first baseman Ryan Howard. Howard has RBIs in eight straight games, tying Lou Gehrig’s major league record from the 1928 and 1932 World Series. In this postseason, Howard has 2 home runs, 14 RBIs and is hitting a blistering .379. LA manager Joe Torre has decided to go with starter Vincente Padilla in this win-or-go-home game. Padilla was fantastic in game two of this series. He gave up one run over seven and a third innings.
