teams was to be the Monday. However Championship Banners night, a replay of the NLCS, maybe the MLB wanted the game/event to go to the nation.. ESPN Monday Night Baseball?? So they end up with the dayoff on Tuesday instead. Have ring ceremony on Wed (it was also on MLB), then the series finale a Thursday day game. Just a guess.
Stripling has been lights out and I'm betting he has a massive year.
Did you note that Jansen had no K's? A line drive for out #1, a base hit, a foul pop out, and a rope to end the game. He blew down the Padres last week but has allowed runs the following to outings before last night's save.
