It was the first time in baseball’s long history that three of the four opening Playoffs series had gone to a decisive Game 5. In the AL, the Tigers took out the team with the best record, sending Joe Girardi and the pinstripes home early for the second straight time in the postseason.
Game 1 got off to a dreadful start, as rain played a huge role in the pitching rotations for the remainder of the series. But in the end, Jim Leyland & Co. proved to be worthy of advancing to the AL’s Series Championship, despite not having home-field advantage. The other Division Series consisted of Texas Rangers taking on the pesky Tampa Bay Rays.
This ALDS was a bit different from the Yanks-Tigers one in the sense that Texas felt more comfortable playing on the road than at home. After evening out the series at one game each in Texas, the Rangers went into Tropicana Field and took care of business taking the next two. Just like that, in four games, Ron Washington’s team celebrated with Champagne, as they’ve reached the ALCS for a second consecutive year.
In the NL, home-field advantage proved to be the difference between the Arizona D-Backs and the Milwaukee Brewers. Owners the best home record in the majors, the Brew Crew was on Monster Mode when playing at Miller Park. In a series not apt for those with cardiac problems, Milwaukee was able to eliminate the NL West champion Diamondbacks in the 10th inning of the fifth game in order to advance.
The final NLDS has to be the most surprising of them all. After an improbable run to get into the postseason, Tony LaRussa and the Cards had no chance against the Phillies’ mighty pitching rotation. In the end, 2 Cy Young winners an NLCS Most Valuable Player and a World Series MVP weren’t enough, as St. Louis spoiled the Phillies hopes of another World Series title in 5 Games.
