We've got two crucial playoff games on the menu both today and tomorrow.

This should be a fun day of baseball. Both home teams will be trying to avoid getting pushed to the brink of elimination. Toronto took care of their business in Game 3 last night thanks largely to a big three run homer in the third inning from Troy Tulowitzki and now has a chance to even their series with a win today.

Then later tonight, the Cubs will host an NLCS game for the first time since 2003 when they lost both Game 6 and Game 7 at home.
