Indians and Cubs both one step closer to a classic World Series. Last night the Indians completed a sweep of the Red Sox. Tonight, the Cubs came back from 3 down in the 9th to beat the Giants 3 out of 4 (sorry DD).

If you aren't watching the World Series game 7, you're missing a game for the ages.

Watched it in a sports bar with a heck of a lot of Cubs fans.....but even more importantly, with heck of a lot of baseball fans who walked away happy and entertained, regardless of who won the World Series.

Mariners' offense came alive today against the Angels. They were up 9-3 going to the bottom of the ninth. With 2 outs, it was 9-5. They lost 10-9, for their 6th loss in their first 7 games. Since 2011, teams leading by six or more runs going into the ninth inning were 2,529-1. Now 2,529-2.

The first pitcher out of the bullpen to start the 9th, Fien, gave up a homer to Pujols on his first pitch. A walk, a single, and a walk followed; based loaded. The closer Diaz came in after a quick warm-up. He got a ground out that let in a run, and a strike out. Then he gave up a 2 run double (9-7), walked the next two guys, and up came Pujols again. He drove in 2 more to tie the game. The next batter hit one to the base of the outfield wall, and game over.

Follow-up on Mariners: here's a batter by batter analysis. I had noticed the sketchy ump calls. I learned a reason that happens.
