That might be one of the longest 9-inning games, absent any weather delay, that I've seen. Had to be 4h 45m or so.
On to Kalifornia.
DC Sports teams failing is a way of life. They don't take that well given the expectations for the Nats this year (Never mind what the Caps keep doing to themselves....or more correctly what the Penguins do to them)

My youngest son and I stayed up to watch the finish of that game. Waaaay past my bedtime for a week night. I think it was 11:45 when it ended. But well worth staying up for. Early rack time tonight. Go Cubs!!

ALCS Game 2

Not even an AL guy but had it on while doing some shelving. So glad the Astros beat the NYY for Verlander who pitched a complete game (120+ pitches, 13 K's) and was pitching from another planet. What a performance.

The Astros win....but more importantly, the Yan Kees LOSE. Makes my heart warm. Verlander goes complete game (who does that any more?) while the Pinstripers wear down their bullpen. 2-0 boys... Nice work

I'm with you on Verlander's performance. Thank you A.J. Hinch for keeping your starter out there and not playing the ridiculous pitch-count game.

LCS, Dodgers up 1 - 0
The Cubs' bullpen manages (as happened several times this year) to snatch defeat from the potential jaws of victory.

Lackey. Again. Someone who, a very short time ago, was a part of the regular starting rotation.

Hopefully the Cubbies will return to winning form at home in Wrigley Field.

Although I am perfectly happy with the Yan Kees getting flamed I have no objection to the NLDS going deep in the series.

Not seeing a "freeze" in the forecast for Chicago, but for the SoCAL boys I imagine they would be bundled up in Under Armour.

Yes, it'll be above freezing but Wrigley in the fall & early spring can be brutal to those not prepared. Have known people to spend big $$ on cups of coffee just to hold onto it. Field points NE & the wind can seriously whistle in against the dugouts & stands. We'll see what The Professor can do on the mound tomorrow.
