Nail Biting Baseball

By Jordan Price

Tis the season for celebration and possibly sadness depending on what team you support.  In the first round of MLB Playoffs, the Red Sox, Diamondbacks, Indians, and Nationals were all eliminated. The Red Sox were defeated in four games to the Astros, and the Diamondbacks were swept in three games by the Dodgers. The 2016 World Series Runner-Ups, the Indians, fell to the American League West Champions, the Astros, in three games. The teams reached the American and National League Championship where the Dodgers beat the Cubs 4-1 to advance to the World Series. The Astros managed to win four games before the Yankees, which advanced the Astors to the World Series as well. In the first game of the World Series, the Dodgers defeated the Astros 3-1 in a close battle. In Game 2, both teams battled back and forth, but the Astros came up with the win. Game 3 was a close game, but the Astros came out with a win 3-5. In Game 4 the Dodgers took the win in a killing game of 6-2. Most viewers were not sure if they were watching the Home Run Derby or the World Series in a high scoring game of 12-12, until the 10th inning when the Astros won 13-12.  The series is not quite over, so stay tuned!
