Dodgers, Cardinals Set For Game Six

The Boston Red Sox are one win away from their third World Series appearance in 10 years. Mike Napoli hit a solo homer as the Red Sox built a 4-0 lead and held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 at Comerica Park in Game Five of the American League Championship Series. The Sox are up 3-2 in the best-of-seven ALCS. Game Six is in Boston on Saturday.

Meanwhile, on the National League side, the St. Louis Cardinals look to advance to the World Series for the second time in three seasons tonight at Busch Stadium in Game Six of the NLCS. It's a rematch of Game Two with Michael Wacha on the hill for the Cards against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. The rookie got the best of the former NL Cy Young winner 1-0 in that contest. Game Seven would be on Saturday should Los Angeles win tonight. Game time is 7:30.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.

The jerseys will continue to display the Blue Note logo, but the diagonal striping on the sleeves has been straightened for a cleaner look. Training camp begins September 18th.
