NLCS Game 5: Phillies (Hamels) at Dodgers (Billingsley), 8:22 p.m. (Fox)
Is this last call for Joe Tore, Don Mattingly and the Dodgers? Meanwhile, the ALCS has a day off and Joe Maddon has told his team to stay away from Fenway Park and rest. The Red Sox are having an optional workout. The Rays have switched up their rotation and will use Scott Kazmir tomorrow and save James Shields for a possible Game 6.
It’s the smart play. Kazmir (4-4 with a 3.02 ERA in 11 starts) has been far better at Fenway than Shields (0-3, 10.12 in three starts).
