We have two winners, two winner take all games!

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers!  They will both advance to their respective league championship games.  The Giants won 6-4 over the Reds to take the series.  Cincinnati blew a 2-0 series lead for the second time in their history.  Detroit beat the A’s 6-0 to take the series in game 5.  I must admit, being a fan of Moneyball, I was sort of pulling for the A’s.  Also, want to congratulate my friend who is a scout for the San Francisco Giants (part of my beach gang in my book Surviving “Paradise”) for the Giants success!!

In the other two MLB games, Washington beat St. Louis 2-1 to even the series 2-2 and we will have a deciding game five today/tonight.  Baltimore took down the Yankees 2-1 in 13 innings to force a deciding game 5 in the Bronx.  The Yankees have lost their previous two opportunities at winner take all games.  Should be interesting.

In NFL action the Tennessee Titans defeated Pittsburgh with a game winning field goal, 26-23 and in College Football, Arizona State was taking care of Colorado 34-17 when I switched off.

Federer, Murray (in three sets) and Djokovic all advance to the semifinals at Shanghai Rolex Masters Tennis Event.  Tomorrow’s action will feature Berdych vs. Djokovic and Federer vs. Murray (replay of Wimbledon final and gold medal final!).  I want to predict a Djokovic – Federer final after tomorrow’s play concludes??  GO ROGER!!
