Another quadrupleheader? Absolutely!

An incredible round of LDS action continues today, and this time six of the playoffs' eight remaining teams have to win or go home.

The action starts at noon again today but this time in Cincinnati, where the Reds and Giants will play a winner-take-all Game 5. The Reds will send Mat Latos (3.48 ERA, 3.85 FIP), who pitched in relief of the injured Johnny Cueto in Game One of this series, while the Giants will send Matt Cain (2.79 ERA, 3.40 FIP) to make his second start of the series.

Fun fact: No NL team has ever come back from an 0-2 deficit in an LDS series. If the Giants do it today, all five games in this series will have been won by the visiting team.

Here are today's other games:

3 PM: Kyle Lohse and the Cardinals (leading series 2-1) at Ross Detwiler and the Nationals

6:30 PM: Joe Saunders and the Orioles at Phil Hughes and the Yankees (leading series 2-1)

Fun fact: When he throws his first pitch tonight Phil Hughes will become the ninth pitcher to start at least four postseason games for the Yankees since 2000. Andy Pettitte, who started a game earlier in this series, has pitched 25.

8:30 PM: Justin Verlander and the Tigers at Jarrod Parker and the Athletics (series tied 2-2)

Fun fact: Coco Crisp's ninth inning single last night was just the seventh postseason walkoff hit in A's history and the first since Ramon Hernandez singled to end Game One of the 2003 ALDS.

Enjoy the games!
