HOUSTON - George Springer and the Houston Astros picked up right where they left off last postseason, hitting four home runs to power past the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the American League Division Series.

Before we could even get to the Wild Card games, the National League gave us something to talk about ... not one, but two teams tied for first place in the Central and West divisions causing a game 163 for all four teams to decide who moves into the NLDS! The Red Sox won 18 more games than Atlanta in the regular season this year. Erik Kratz had two hits and drove in two runs, Hernan Perez hit two ground-rule doubles and Milwaukee's bullpen closed the door after Chacin delivered in his playoff debut. After last years lost to the Astros in the Division series the Redsox's hope to reach the championship for the first time since 2013.

At the time of this writing, I have to admit that the Brewers are already up 2 games to none against the Rockies, the Dodgers lead the Braves and the Astros lead the Indians 1 game to none, while the Red Sox are beating the Yankees 5 to 0 after 5 innings with Chris Sale on the mound with 8 K's so far ... so much for this shoulder concerns!
