The Divisional Playoffs: Game 1

The Divisional playoff started today.

In Game One, the Yankees beat the Guardians, 4-1.

The Phillies beat the Braves by one run, 7-6.

And the Astros came from behind to beat the Mariners, 8-7.

I should be happy because I’m from Texas and the Astros are the Texas teams in the playoffs but I actually feel bad for Mariners, who really impressed me in the Wild Card and who were leading for most of today’s game.  I was glad that the Astros pulled off a win but I was sad that it came at the expense of the Mariners.

I’m also happy for the Phillies and their fans.  I know a lot of them were anxious waiting for the Phillies to finally put away today’s game.  A Phillies/Astros World Series sounds good right about now.  I’d even be happy with a Phillies/Mariners World Series.

Right now, in the last of today’s game, it is the top of the 4th and the Dodgers leads the Padres, 5-0.  Usually, I’d say that Dodgers are going to win but, as the Astros proved today, anything can happen before the final out.  That’s one of the many reasons why I love baseball.
