Diamondbacks, Cardinals Force Decisive Game Fives in NL Division Playoffs
Ryan Roberts hit a first-inning grand slam to start the Arizona Diamondbacks toward a 10-6 win against the Milwaukee Brewers, forcing a decisive Game 5 in their National League Division Series.
The Diamondbacks, who won two games in Phoenix to even the best-of-five series after losing the first two on the road, will face the Brewers again tomorrow at Milwaukee’s Miller Park.
The other National League first-round series also is headed for a fifth game. David Freese drove in four runs with a two-run homer and a two-run double as the St. Louis Cardinals won 5-3 yesterday to even their series against the Phillies. The teams meet tomorrow night in Philadelphia.
In the American League, the Texas Rangers already have won their series 3-1 against the Tampa Bay Rays and await the winner of tonight’s Game 5 in New York between the Yankees and the Detroit Tigers.
