Two LCS games on the docket for Saturday.

Blue Jays vs. Indians

ALCS Game 2 (Indians lead 1-0)

Pitchers: J.A. Happ vs. Josh Tomlin

Time: 1:08 p.m.


Yes, in a postseason full of elite, dynamic pitching, that’s Happ vs. Tomlin, a pair of nondescript past-30 veterans, for Game 2 of the ALCS. And yet, they both had quietly productive years (ERA+ of 134 and 106, respectively), as well as solid (if short) ALDS outings. Game 1 was a pitching duel decided by a single homer, so will any big bats come out today?
