My jinx is confusing me
So I didn't watch Game 4, not at all. Didn't even glance at the updated scoreboard at the Orange County Register (could that have been the problem?) and the Angels lost in a 10-1 massacre (LAT inning-by-inning rundown here).
On Thursday at 5 p.m., local time (8 p.m. New York time), they'll play Game 5 in Anaheim. The Angels, of course, must win three games in a row if they are to go to the World Series. Ditto with the Dodgers, who are also down 3-1 against the Philadelphia Phillies (they play their Game 5 tomorrow, also at 5 p.m. PDT).
Ah, wouldn't it be cool — the stuff of baseball lore — if the two California teams in the running were both able to come back from the brink and make it to the Fall Classic?
No, I'm not holding my breath waiting for a 역전.
