Championship Series Day 4: Game Thread

The third game of the ALCS begins tonight as the Blue Jays host the Royals.

The Royals just keep bucking the odds. They've taken the first two games from the Toronto Blue Jays despite their having what is likely the best offense in the playoffs. Tonight Johnny Cueto will face Marcos Stroman in an effort to go three up on the Jays. Cueto has been good in the playoffs so far with a 3.86 ERA in 14 innings across 2 starts. But Stroman has been equally good with a 3.46 ERA in 13 innings also across 2 starts.

Kansas City Royals at Toronto Blue Jays - 7:07 pm CST
