The league championship series started with a bang as the Milwaukee Brewers ran their winning streak to 12 games and handed Clayton Kershaw the shortest postseason start of his career to seize a quick lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Can Milwaukee expand on it in Game 2? And now the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros join the fray with a showdown between their aces on tap, as both ballclubs aim to gain that same advantage.
