Back Sports Page presents a new episode of the Exit Velo podcast with your hosts Adam Cohen, Henry Winkelhake, and Ben Rossi.
In this episode, the team discusses an eventful Game 162 that featured a 1-0 victory in the bottom of the ninth by the New York Yankees to secure a playoff berth. However, the Boston Red Sox held serve and won their Game 162 to hold home-field advantage for the American League Wild Card game. Since both teams won, they officially eliminated the Toronto Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners from playoff contention.
Meanwhile, in the National League, the San Francisco Giants won their final matchup of the season to secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and force the Los Angeles Dodgers to play in the wild card game. Therefore, the Yankees and Red Sox play the ALWC on Oct. 5, the Dodgers host the St. Louis Cardinals on Oct. 6 in the NLWC. As for the American League Division Series, the Houston Astros host the Chicago White Sox, and the winner between Boston and New York will play against the Tampa Bay Rays. Both matchups start on Oct. 6. In the National League Division Series, the Milwaukee Brewers host the Atlanta Braves, while the winner of the NLWC will play the Giants. Both NLDS games start on Oct. 7. The crew highlights the key factors of each series coming up.
