Fun Facts: ALCS Game 4 (Again)/NLCS Game 4

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

We only ended up getting one game yesterday, but now we should see two again today.

It's time for another game of "weather permitting."

Last night's game was rained out in Detroit, so the Yankees' season will instead be on the line today when they visit the Tigers (leading series 3-0) at 3. Max Scherzer (3.74 ERA, 3.27 FIP regular season, 0.00 ERA, 0.66 FIP postseason) will face CC Sabathia (3.38 ERA, 3.33 FIP regular season, 1.53 ERA, 1.79 FIP postseason).

I hope you won't mind that I'm reusing some of yesterday's Fun facts:

  • Since scoring seven runs against the Orioles in ALDS Game 1, the Yankees have scored more than three runs in just one of their last seven games. They scored four or more runs in 110 of their 162 regular season games.
  • The Tigers are 6-2 this postseason despite having his just four home runs. Two of them came from Delmon Young.

And now some Bonus facts:

  • Yesterday's rainout eliminated what could have been an off day Friday. If the Yankees win today, they'll play in Detroit again tomorrow. If they sweep those games, the series returns to New York Saturday.
  • Pushing his outing back a day likely means this is the last time CC Sabathia will pitch in this series, regardless of outcome.

Then at 7 in St. Louis the Cardinals (leading series 2-1) will look to take a commanding lead over the Giants after their rain-interrupted win last night. They'll send Adam Wainwright (3.94 ERA, 3.10 FIP regular season, 7.88 ERA, 5.34 FIP postseason) to the mound to face Tim Lincecum (5.18 ERA, 4.18 FIP regular season, 1.08 ERA, 1.29 FIP postseason).

Fun facts:

  • Tim Lincecum, who has pitched in relief in exactly one of his 189 career regular season appearances, has worked out of the bullpen in four postseason games.
  • Adam Wainwright leads all NL pitchers with 15 strikeouts despite having pitched just eight innings in the playoffs. Kyle Lohse is second with 13 strikeouts, but has pitched 18.1 innings.

Once again today the AL game is on TBS, while the NL game tonight is on Fox.
