Somewhat surprising both the Red Sox and Texas were swept out. Turned out to be a FIVE game losing streak. Took some extras (Bumgardner out after five) for the Giants to last another game and five pitchers for them to blow it in the ninth in Game Four. Dodgers/Nats (eh to both) will go five. Theme: more Murph, Kershaw struggling some but Nats not taking enough advantage. Me? I'm rooting for the AL and Cubs. NY football depressing. Update: Dodgers advance with basically a pen game, closer goes 2.1 and Kershaw closes (1st out was Murphy) with last two outs after pitching a couple days before. Instant classic.
