Notes from the LCSes

Rick Porcello had five strikeouts tonight in his first nine batters. He hasn’t had five strikeouts in a start since July.

Brandon Inge homered on an 0-2 pitch to tie the game, off Alexi Ogando who has absolutely shut Detroit down this season. Inge had one career homer on 0-2, and that was back in 2006. Also, Inge against righties this year – avert your eyes, people – .170/.220/.228.

Miguel Cabrera was IBBed with the bases empty. That’s happened only ten times in postseason history – four times to Barry Bonds. (#2 is that choker A-Rod, by the way. I also include this because, well, I had to. I like the picture on the left because he looks like “a-HA. I will hide behind this. NO ONE WILL FIGURE ME OUT.” Oh Alex.)

Mark Kotsay started for the Brewers, batting second and playing center field. He made a terrible play in the outfield that allowed the eventual winning run to score. However, he also went 1-for-2 with a walk and – a home run. Yep.

All the runs in the NLCS game scored by the third inning. ALL of the Brewers’ runs scored in the first.

    Heh. That was the Cards who scored their 4 runs in the first.
