Rays Advance To ALDS

The Tampa Bay Rays have advanced to the American League Division Series. Delmon Young homered and Alex Cobb tossed six-and-two-thirds scoreless innings as the Rays blanked the Indians 4-0 in the AL Wild Card Game at Progressive Field. The Rays will take on the Red Sox in Game One of the best-of-five ALDS on Friday in Boston. The Detroit Tigers and Oakland Athletics will meet in the other ALDS starting Friday.

Both National League Division Series get started tonight. In the opener, the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the St. Louis Cardinals in Game One of their National League Division Series at Busch Stadium. The Pirates advanced to the NLDS with a 6-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the NL Wild Card game on Tuesday. The Pirates won 10 of the 19 regular season meetings between the two teams. In the night cap, the Los Angeles Dodgers battle the Atlanta Braves in Game One of the other NLDS at Turner Field. The Dodgers will send former Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw to the mound in the series opener, while the Braves counter with 15-game winner Kris Medlen.

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.
