2017 MLB Playoffs: Saturday prediction and discussion

What will happen today? Here’s our take

MLB: NLDS-Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday thread for Saturday, October 7th, 2017.

Yesterday we made the following predictions:

****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.

The results were:

****Astros 8, Red Sox 2. Bregman didn’t have a big game but others did.
****Indians 9, Yankees 8. Not a pitchers’ duel but the correct result
****Cubs 3, Nationals 0. No homers from Rizzo and Murphy and the wrong result.
****Dodgers 9, Diamondbacks 5. Seven K from Kershaw.

This brings our post-season game result prediction record to 6-2.

The National League continues today with the Cubs against the Nationals and the Dodgers against the Diamondbacks. The predictions:

****Cubs win 4-2 over Nationals.
****Diamondbacks defeat Dodgers 5-2.
