2020 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYOFFS
October 17, 2020  | By David Bianculli

TBS, 8:30 p.m. ET

 
When the Tampa Bay Rays took the first three games in this year’s American League Championship Series, proceeding to the World Series seemed an almost foregone conclusion. In baseball history, 38 teams have fallen behind 0-3 in the league series, and 37 of them lost. The sole exception: the Boston Red Sox, who climbed back against the New York Yankees to claim the pennant in 2004. But after winning last night’s Game 6, the Houston Astros have won three straight, and tied the ALCS at 3-3. Tonight’s deciding Game 7 will either propel the Rays to the World Series after a shaky series of losses, or make the Astros the second team in history to overcome such a deficit in the pennant playoffs.
