College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
The Philadelphia Phillies finished off the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-4 last night winning the NLCS in five games (deja vu anybody?) The Phillies will look to become the first NL team to win back-to-back titles since the 1975-76 Cincinnati Reds. In the ALCS, game five goes tonight and the New York Yankees have a commanding 3-1 series lead. New York has gotten two incredible starts from CC Sabathia and Alex Rodriguez has been incredible. In his first four playoffs with the Yanks, he had a grand total of four home runs and nine RBIs. Already this post-season A-Rod’s gone deep five times, driven in 11 and is hitting a blistering .407. In total the Bronx Bombers have hit 14 home runs (tied with the Phillies for the league lead during the playoffs) and combined for 54 RBIs. Unfortunately for the Los Angeles Angels this team looks unstoppable. The Angels will do their best tonight. They send John Lackey to the mound in this critical game. New York goes with AJ Burnett. Whether the Yanks win tonight or not, one things is for sure. Game one of the World will be on Wednesday, October 28th and the Philadelphia Phillies will be the visiting team.
