American & National League Finals
Hi, I'm Alex Cunningham with "Off The Wire".
Last week the New York Yankees eliminated the Cleveland Indians in Game 5 of the best of 5 series in the American League Division Series.
The Yankees have moved on to the American League Championship Series to play a best of 7 series against the Houston Astros.
The Chicago Cubs won the National League Division Series eliminating the Washington Nationals, the Cubs have moved on to the National League Championship Series where they are facing the LA Dodgers.
Last night was game 3 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium.
The winner of this series will go on to face the winner of the National League Series which could either be the Chicago Cubs or the LA Dodgers.
Game 4 of the ALCS will be played tonight at Yankee Stadium, New York City.
The Astros are leading the series so the Yankees really have to focus and play to their best abilities if they want to win this series.
Tonight is game 3 of the NLCS with the Dodgers leading the series 2 games to 1 against the Cubs. The defending champion Cubs know what it takes to win the World Series and are capable of doing it again but they have stiff competition with the Dodgers giving them a run for their money.
By this time next week we will know who will battle it out for the World Series title and all the teams are now are fighting hard to get there.
I'm Alex Cunningham, thanks for listening.
