Oakland is stayin’ alive; can San Diego and Miami?

How can a five-game series feel so much shorter than a seven-game series? When a team loses the first two games it feels like curtains, although Oakland was able to hold off the Astros and elimination yesterday. They’ll have to do it again today, though, to force a Game 5, as will the Padres, which is a shame because last night’s Padres-Dodgers game felt like a World Series game.

The Marlins are also fighting for their playoff lives despite playing well against Atlanta in their first two games; that game gets underway now on FS1. Go Fish go! Go Team Chaos!
