Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres

Padres won the series 3-1

Takeaway

The Padres family killed the “Dragon on the Highway,” to quote their owner Peter Seidler. They’ve won three straight NLDS games to get rid of the star-studded Dodgers that have dominated them throughout the regular season, and they seem to be operating on a completely different level at this juncture. They start off strong to great at the start and play a stellar defense behind him. The rear end of their bull dominates. And they combine hits just in time, no more than the seventh of five runs that produced an epic comeback on Saturday night.

Perhaps just as importantly, they play with a high level of confidence. Eliminating the Mets and the Dodgers, the two teams who combined to win 212 games during the regular season, would do just that. Now they will have a home advantage in the NLCS showdown against the similarly hot Phillies. And given the energy at Petco Park over the past two nights, this could be a major lift. – Alden Gonzalez

The Yankees hit three hurdles, including a 449-foot moon shot by a stuttering slug. Aaron Judge. But the Guardians kept cheating on the pitches and flying little lines to the opposite court — and before you know it, that added to some real insults. The Yankees tried to shut it down with a mix of Andy Peralta And the Clark Schmidtbut Cleveland kept swinging and repeating until the rules were uploaded to the recurring post-season champion Oscar Gonzalez, who curled coolly through the middle, scored two runs to claim a home-and-away win in the ninth inning as the bluffing crowd at Progressive Field sent the runway trembling. It turns out that a slingshot can actually get you done in October, and when that happens, it’s a lot of fun to watch. – Bradford Doolittle
