Dirtbags Star in October Baseball
For baseball fans October means only one thing- the playoffs. And this October Dirtbag fans have much to be excited about.
Today, Wednesday the 6th, is the first day of Major League Baseball playoffs, and Dirtbag alumni have already been prominently displayed.
The postseason opened with the top American League seeded Tampa Bay Rays hosting the Texas Rangers. Former Dirtbag Evan Longoria went 1-4 in the Rays loss. Longoria is considered one of the Rays' best hitters and has the potential to be a true game changer this postseason. While it is never smiled upon to lose the first game of a series, especially with home field advantage, the Rays are comforted in knowing that they have an almost identical record on the road.
Other former Dirtbags in the playoffs this season are the Philadelphia Phillies' pitchers Vance Worley and Andrew Carpenter.
The Rays continue their journey toward the World Series tomorrow, Thursday the 7th at 11:30 am PT. The Phillies play their second game on Friday the 8th at 3 pm PT.
Keep rooting for your favorite Dirtbag alum this postseason!
