The NLCS is coming home to Denver with the Rockies up 2-0!!! The Rockies took an early 1-0 lead but gave it back. Took a 2-1 lead but Manny Corpas blew his 2nd save ever to head to extra innings tied at 2. But in the 11th Jose Valverde loses his control. He walked 3 in the inning, including walking Willy Taveras to force in the winning run. Ryan Spier threw a perfect bottom of the 11th to seal the 3-2 win. Willy Taveras was clearly the MVP of this game with a number of stellar defensive plays to save the game as well as scoring a run and taking the walk to force in the winning run.
19 wins in 20 games. The first team since the 1976 Reds to start the postseason 5-0. Game 3 is Sunday night in Denver. Andrea and I will be there.
