NLCS Extravaganza Weekend
For the first time in their 42-year history, the Houston Astros advanced past the first round of the playoffs as they beat the Atlanta Braves in 5 games. So then it was on to meet the St. Louis Cardinals for the National League Championship. Games 3, 4, and 5 were in Houston, and Neil was there to see them all in person.
The Astros took each of the 3 games over the weekend to lead the series 3 games to 2. Unfortunately, the Cardinals came back a couple days later in St. Louis, winning the series in 7 games. Fortunately, they got pounded by the Boston Red Sox in 4 straight in the World Series.
