Today in the playoffs

NLCS Game 2: Dodgers (Billingsley) at Phillies (Myers), 4:35 p.m. on Fox.

ALCS Game 1: Red Sox (Matsuzaka) at Rays (Shields), 8:37 p.m. on TBS.

Notes: Torre has long considered the second game the key to a postseason series and used to give the assignment to Andy Pettitte. Now Billingsley, who was 16-10 in the regular season, is his man. The right-hander pitched well against the Cubs in Game 2 of the division series. … Myers was 7-4, 3.06 in 13 starts after taking a voluntary assignment to the minors to get himself straightened out. He allowed two runs in seven innings against the Brewers in Game 2 of the division series. … Don’t be surprised if the Rays and Red Sox fight. These teams dislike each other, even more so than the Yankees and the Rays. Troy Percival did not make the Tampa roster. Eric Hinske got bumped as well. Here’s how little tradition the Rays have: Eleven original season ticket holders will throw out the first pitch tonight and Dick Vitale has the job tomorrow. Fred McGriff must be busy.
