National League gets home field advantage in the World Series after beating the American League 8-0. Tony LaRussa managed the All Star Game and won. Luckily if my Cardinals reach the World Series again, they'll have home field advantage but what matters more is a World Championship.
Nationals beat the Mets last night in 10 innings, 5-4. They came back after trailing in both the 9th and 10th innings. In the bottom of the 10th, with the Nationals down 4-3, Bryce Harper (can you say rookie phenom?) stroked a triple to tie the score. After two intentional walks, Harper was forced out at home on a ground ball play, but then a wild pitch brought home Ryan Zimmerman with the winning run.
