Gamethreads: ALDS and NLDS mania, one more time!

Thanks to Oakland’s rally, it’s another four-of-a-kind day — although Houston, Tampa, L.A. and Atlanta all can advance with a win

MLB: NLDS-San Diego Padres at Los Angeles Dodgers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

After the shock of Oakland coming back on Houston, and Liam Hendriks again pitching like a closer in starter’s clothing, we have four more games today!

The Astros, Rays, Dodgers and Atlanta all can wrap up their series on Thursday — or we could still have yet another four-game day tomorrow.

What’s been the most fun series so far? I like what Tampa is doing to the Yankees, but those games have also had some intrigue and fight. Ditto, obviously, A’s-Astros. The National League, I’m finding less compelling, although L.A.-San Diego was probably the best game of this round last night.
