All Teams Playing Today 10/7/13
UNDATED - All eight teams that are still playing in Major League Baseball are on the field today:
- The Pittsburgh Pirates could move on with a win today at home against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4 of their series, but they are trailing 2-0 in the 6th inning, while the Oakland A's have beaten the Detroit Tigers 6-3 to take a 2-1 lead in their series.
- The Red Sox-Rays series moves to St Petersburg, with the Red Sox up two games to none with a chance to move on to the championship series. Boston sends Clay Buchholz to the mound against Tampa's Alex Cobb in Game 3.
The Rays are not feeling down. It took winning three consecutive elimination games just to get into the division series and they are confident they can win three straight elimination games again. The Red Sox outscored Tampa Bay 19-6 in the opening two games at Fenway Park.
- The Los Angeles Dodgers are a victory away from sending the Atlanta Braves home for the season. Game 4 tonight at Dodger Stadium has ace Clayton Kershaw pitching for LA against veteran Freddy Garcia for the Braves. The Dodgers flexed their offensive muscle by pounding out 14 hits in yesterday's 13-6 victory.
