…and then there were four.
The Dodgers have been rivals with both teams battling it out for the National League pennant. For that reason, a lot of here for rooting for the Reds and Nats. But baseball is a funny game. Just when you are jubilant because your team is up by two in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs, the opponent snatches victory from the jaws of defeat.
Both the Giants and Cardinals showed True Grit by the way they grinded their way back from a probable loss and elimination. The team with the best record in the majors, the Washington Nationals, were snuffed out by the team that won 10 games fewer than Nats, the Cardinals, who barely made the playoffs by winning the number two wild card spot.
In the American League, the teams that were favored to win back in Spring Training, the Tigers and Yankees, did not disappoint the prognosticators.
May the best teams win.
