Two Games You Should Probably Watch Tonight

AL East Champs vs. AL Central Champs

The Minnesota Twins will look to Nick Blackburn and his zero playoff experience tonight while the New York Yankees will put A.J. Burnett (also a postseason rookie) on his home hill for Game 2 of their American League Division Series at 6:07pm ET. Blackburn sported a 4.03 ERA over 33 starts this year and Burnett went 13-9 with a 4.04 ERA.

Fun facts: The Yanks lead the series 1-0 after their 7-2 victory on Tuesday. Reggie Jackson is throwing out the first pitch. Also, it might rain.

Wild Card! vs. AL West Champs

Big game pitcher Josh Beckett will take the hill for the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of their ALDS against Los Angeles Angels' righty Jered Weaver, who pitched two scoreless innings for the victory in Game 3 last year. Weaver went 16-8 with a 3.75 ERA this year and Beckett went 17-6 with a 3.86 ERA.

Fun facts: Big Papi struck our three times in Game one, which the Angels won 5-0 last night. They now lead the series 1-0... obviously. The Green Monster has not attacked C.B. Bucknor. Yet. We'll see after tonight's game begins at 9:37pm ET.
