now they wait to find out who they will p http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-kerryon-johnson-jersey , lay in the 2018 World Series.The team swept three games in Houston to win the American League Championship Series in five games, using clutch power hitting from ALCS Most Valuable Player Jackie Bradley Jr., Rafael Devers and J.D. Martinez to defeat the defending World Series champion Houston Astros.The Sox also received brilliant outfield defense from Bradley, Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi, along with excellent pitching from Nathan Eovaldi, Rick Porcello and David Price to advance.Neither top starter Chris Sale nor ace closer Craig Kimbrel were at their best, but the Red Sox were still able to vanquish their respected opponents.

The Dodgers lead the National League Championship Series 3-2 heading into Friday's sixth game. If the Dodgers can win either Friday or Saturday, they will get back to the World Series for the second year in a row.However, if the Brewers win Games 6 and 7, they will represent the National League in the World Series for the first time in team history. The Brewers went to the World Series in 1982 as the American League champions but switched leagues after the 1997 season.The Brewers lost their only World Series appearance in seven games to the St. Louis Cardinals in 1982. The Dodgers lost to the Astros in seven games last year.The Red Sox have won their three most recent World Series appearances in 2004, 2007 and 2013. NLCS Game 6When:Friday, Oct. 19, at 8:39 p.m. ETWhere:Miller Park in MilwaukeeTV:FS1Live Stream:Fox Sports GoThe Dodgers are giving Hyun-Jin Ryu the ball in Game 6, while the Brewers have designated Wade Miley as their starter.This may sound familiar since Miley opened Game 5 in Los Angeles for the Brew Crew, but manager Craig Counsell removed him after one batter.That bit of subterfuge did not work for the Brewers since they lost the game and find themselves on the brink of elimination. However, Miley was effective in Game 2 of the series as he pitched 5.2 innings and allowed two hits.Ryu also started in Game 2, giving up two runs and six hit in 4.1 innings. He had been much better against the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS.The Brewers struggled to hit in their three games in Los Angeles, and they hope to get the big bats of Christian Yelich Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , Jesus Aguilar and Travis Shaw going. Those three combined for 103 home runs during the regular season.The Dodgers are looking for production from Justin Turner, Manny Machado and Cody Bellinger. Turner has proved to be one ofthe sport's best postseason hitters, and he has a career slash line of .313/.433/.531 with seven home runs and 30 runs batted in.Game 6 of the NLCS is considered dead even by the handicappers. Both the Dodgers and Brewers are minus-110 in the game, per OddsShark. This means that a gambler would have to risk $110 on either team to win $100.The Dodgers are minus-400 to win the National League pennant while the Brewers are plus-300. The Red Sox are minus-150 to win the World Series, while the Dodgers are plus-190 and the Brewers are plus-650 to land the championship. PredictionsThe Brewers should benefit from their return to Miller Park and their supportive fans. Game 6 in Milwaukee should be close, but look for Yelich or Shaw to come through with the big hits that force a seventh game.We see the Brewers surviving that finale as the Dodgers' all-or-nothing approach at the plate is likely to fail. Machado or Turner could hit solo home runs, but they will fall short of matching Milwaukee's production.That will set the stage for a Boston-Milwaukee World Series. Earlier in the postseason, the Brewers looked like they were on a magical run, but that may be over.Boston is the better team and will beat the Brewers in six games.World Series tickets can be purchased throughStubHub.NLCS tickets can be purchased through StubHub. Mike Zarrilli/Getty ImagesAtlanta Braves pitcher Brandon McCarthy announced Tuesday he will retire following the conclusion of the 2018 season."I'm done after this," McCarthy said, according to MLB.com's Mark Bowman."This is it. The offseason is the rest of my life. If I was going to keep playing, a month and a half ago I would have had the surgery that cleans the [knee] and I'd be back next year just a little bit after Spring [Training]."McCarthy, 35, was placed on the disabled list in late July with right knee tendinitis and remains sidelined as the Braves pursue a National League East title.However http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/deshaun-watson-jersey , Bowman noted McCarthy threw off a mound Tuesday and is "attempting to make adjustments that may allow him to be available as a reliever in September."McCarthy said Tuesday that unless he feels comfortable during rehab starts in Triple-A, he won't return to the mound this season."If I go out there and just [look mediocre], then there is no reason to activate me because it just cost someone else a roster spot," he said, per Bowman. "If I'm not getting outs, what's the point of doing that for a month? But if I feel like I can go out and be good and take up innings, then it absolutely makes sense."Before hitting the shelf, McCarthy went 6-3 with a 4.92 ERA across his first 15 starts.For his career, the 13-year veteran owns a 69-75 record, 4.20 ERA and 1.300 WHIP.
