The NL wild card remained scoreless for the first eight innings with great pitching performances from Madison Bumgarner and Noah Syndergaard. However, in the ninth inning, Jeurys Familia gave up a three-run home run to catcher Conor Gillaspie driving in Brandon Crawford and Joe Panik.
I have mentioned my theory, or rather superstition, that San Francisco will win the even year this decade and while that has happened only twice, I'm going to get behind it. Plus I like the Giants, so I am going to be watching closely. Still, the idea of the Cubs winning is exciting as well. The NL is my preferred league so I'll be extra excited for these games, but I'm going to try to watch all of the playoffs this year unlike last year.
