ALDS and NLDS Game 5’s are set

Are you kidding me??  Three game 5’s are set for Tonight, and Friday night, we have Ivan Nova and the Yankees taking on Doug Fister’s Tigers.  I couldn’t think of a worse pitcher for the Tigers to send out there for a game 5, if there was anyway to get Verlander out there again I would, but that’s highly unlikely.  Look for the Yankees to take control of this game in the Bronx and carry on into the ALCS.

Now for the NL, I pray to god that the NLCS matchup is not between the Cardinals and the Brewers, knowing that two teams from the Central are in it will hurt on the heart.  The Brewers are most likely gonna send out Yovani Gallardo, who threw a 8 inning gem, giving up only 4 hits, and striking out 9.  Diamondbacks are going to lean on the young stud, CY Young candidate  Ian Kennedy who won 21 games for them in the regular season.  Great pitching matchup for this game, should be an interesting one seeing as the Dbacks played terrible in Milwaukee the first two games, then decided to show up at home the last two.

Speaking of great matchups, the two aces of both respective clubs Roy Halladay vs Chris Carpenter.  After giving up a 3 run homerun to Lance Berkman in the first inning of game 1, Halladay settled in and struck out 8 batters, thru 8 innings, and only gave up 1 hit after the homerun.  Chris Carpenter on the other hand had a rough go of it in-game 2, 3 innings pitched, 5 hits, 3 BB, and only 2 K’s.  I’d look for Carpenter to bounce back in this one, but I’m definitely giving the Phillies the upper hand here in-game 5 in Philly, just based on the fact Roy Halladay is most likely going the distance in this one.
