Today is National Baseball Day. Other than opening day, it’s the best day of the year for baseball fans. Four playoff games in one day.
Wall-to-wall baseball. Wall-to-wall drama. Wall-to-wall joy.
The American League has already played its Game 1s. It was a bad day for socks of all colors. The White Sox lost to the Astros 6-1. The Red Sox lost to the Rays 5-0.
In the National League, the Dodgers play the Giants, where the best two teams ever to meet in a playoff series are meeting. One team with 106 wins, one with 105.
The Braves go up against the Brewers, who had three starters with stellar sub-3 ERAs. Corbin Burnes at 2.43, Brandon Woodruff at 2.56, and Freddie Paralta at 2.81.
Today might not look like the baseball Rangers fans are used to. This is what’s called good.
