Gamethreads: Astros at Red Sox (ALCS Game 5)/Atlanta at Dodgers (NLCS Game 4)

OK, so this really could be the last day of the year with two baseball games.

Just testing.

Here we go, no sweeps!

Houston and Boston go first, on FS1, at 4:08 p.m. CT.

Who’d have thunk that a Chris Sale-Framber Valdez southpaw matchup would tilt to Houston, but here we are. You get the sense that Boston blew its shot (or the home-plate ump blew it for them) to steal another win and upset the Astros. Tonight’s game is really the series for the Red Sox, as they have to get back to Texas up a game.

Over in the National League, Cody Bellinger gave L.A. some late life (guess he won’t be dealt in some weird swap to the White Sox for Craig Kimbrel, after all) and the Dodgers look to even things like Houston did on Tuesday.

So for the late game, we turn to TBS, at 7:08 p.m. CT:

No lineup I can find yet for L.A., but it’s Julio Urías starting for them.
