The 2017 MLB Post-Season kicks into overdrive today with four games.

Yesterday we predicted that the Houston Astros would defeat the Boston Red Sox 4-2 behind a George Springer homer and that the Cleveland Indians would beat the New York Yankees 8-5 with Carlos Santana, Aaron Hicks, and Brett Gardner all hitting home runs.

The actual results were Astros 8, Red Sox 2, and Indians 4, Yankees 0. The player details were all completely wrong but the projected game results were correct, bringing our post-season prediction record to 3-1.

For today we predict the following:

****Astros 7, Red Sox 5. Big game from Alex Bregman.
****Indians 2, Yankees 1 Pitcher’s duel, both starters thrive
****Nationals 6, Cubs 3 HRs from Anthony Rizzo, Daniel Murphy
****Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 3 Nine K from Clayton Kershaw.

I had planned on having Prospect Retros for all the starting pitchers but ran behind schedule this morning. Thanks for your patience.
