The MLB playoffs just heated up with some riveting pitching performances. It seems like baseball becomes simply a pitching duel during the playoffs. John Lackey and Justin Verlander battled in a close 1-0 win by the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox took a 2-1 lead in the ALCS. In the NLCS, the Cardinals had some clutch hitting from Matt Holliday and Matt Carpenter to take a 3-1 series lead against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Despite the low offensive numbers, the games still seem to draw interest for how great the pitching has been.

The NBA season is coming very close and today featured a great matchup of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors in Beijing. The Warriors won the game 100-95 behind 31 points from David Lee and 24 points from Stephen Curry. The Grizzlies won a close 102-99 contest over the Milwaukee Bucks behind a masterful jack of all trades performance from Marc Gasol. Here are The Shoes That Won Last Night.
