NLDS Game 3 grades: Pirates, Dodgers both one win from NLCS
The Dodgers and Pirates moved closer to meeting in the NLCS with wins on Sunday.
With their Game 3 wins on Sunday, but the Pittsburgh Pirates and Los Angeles Dodgers are on the verge of advancing to the NLCS. Both teams have a two games-to-one lead in their respective NLDS matchups but that doesn't guarantee anything -- Game 4 and Game 5 (if necessary) are hardly guarantees regardless of where they're playing or who is scheduled to pitch.
For the time being, it's time to hand out some grades for Sunday's playoff action. Both ALDSes had a scheduled off-day, so we're NLDS exclusive in this post.
