Adam Wainwright and Clayton Kershaw absolutely dealt yesterday, pitching the Cardinals and Dodgers to 1-0 NLDS leads over the Pirates and Braves respectively. Neither game was really all that close, and both series are in line to end like most of our staff predicted. PIC OF THE DAY Kris Medlen says on his face what all of the Braves were thinking last night. (Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports) Meanwhile, the Reds were given their post-mortem yesterday, and fired manager Dusty Baker this morning. I guess that's what happens when you lose to the Pirates in the playoffs... Today, both NLDS matchups continue, and both ALDS matchups begin. NLDS Game 2: Pirates vs Cardinals, 1:07 PM, MLB Network. Gerrit Cole vs Lance Lynn ALDS Game 1: Rays vs Red Sox, 3:07 PM, TBS. Matt Moore vs Jon Lester NLDS Game 2: Dodgers vs Braves, 6:07 PM, TBS. Zack Greinke vs Mike Minor ALDS Game 1: Tigers vs Athletics, 9:37 PM, TBS. Max Scherzer vs Bartolo Colon We'll have previews of both AL series up today, piggybacking on our previews of the Dodgers-Braves and Pirates-Cardinals series yesterday.
