Let's Play Two!

What a great day for baseball -- the Yankees and the Red Sox play a rare late-series day game, followed by the Cubs and Marlins, with Chicago playing for, yes, the right to go to the World Series.

Sunday's rainout in the ALCS results in today's day game. Derek Lowe goes for the Red Sox and David Wells for the Yankees. Tim Wakefield again handcuffed New York last night to draw the series even at two games each. Boston really needs this game; otherwise it faces the daunting prospect of winning two straight in the Bronx.

In the National League, Cubs fans are giddy at the thought of having Mark Prior and Kerry Wood set to start Game 6 and, if necessary, Game 7, respectively. Chicago took care of business in Miami, stomping on the Marlins in their first two games there to grab the series momentum and guarantee a return trip to Wrigley.

As David Pinto would say: Enjoy!
