Minor League Ball Gameday, October 6

Hyun-jin Ryu - USA TODAY Sports

Moving forward with Sunday MLB playoff action.

Good afternoon prospect watchers. The 2013 MLB playoffs today continue today with National League Division Series action. The Cardinals take on the Pirates at 3 PM Eastern, followed by the Braves against the Dodgers at 8 PM Eastern. My predictions today:

The Pirates and the Cardinals will have a pitching-oriented contest, eventually won by the Pirates 2-1 in 11 innings.
The Dodgers will beat the Braves fairly handily by a 6-1 score. Ryu pitches eight shutout innings.

Someone asked me about how my previous predictions had gone. Let's take a look.
AL Wild Card Tie-breaker: Predicted: Rays 5, Rangers 3. Result: Rays 5, Rangers 2.
NL Wild Card: Predicted: Pirates 6, Reds 3. Result: Pirates 6, Reds 2
AL Wild Card: Predicted: Indians 4, Rays 2. Result: Rays 4, Indians 0.
NLDS Day One: Predicted: Cardinals 3, Pirates 2. Result: Cardinals 9, Pirates 1.
Predicted: Dodgers 5, Braves 0. Result: Dodgers 6, Braves 1.
ALDS Day One: Predicted: Red Sox 5, Rays 2.  Result: Red Sox 12, Rays 2
Predicted: Athletics 7, Tigers 4.   Result: Tigers 3, Athletics 2.
NLDS Day Two: Predicted: Dodgers 6, Braves 2.  Result: Braves 4, Dodgers 3.
Predicted: Cardinals 6, Pirates 5.  Result: Pirates 7, Cardinals 1.
ALDS Day Two: Predicted: Red Sox 6, Rays 3.  Result: Red Sox 7, Rays 4.
Predicted: Athletics 3, Tigers 2.  Result: Athletics 1, Tigers 0.
So, there have been 11 post-season games thus far. I'm 7-4 in predictions, which isn't bad, but small sample size!
