10/18/2017 Chris Taylor, LAD, 2B
Chris Taylor went 2 for 5 with a triple, a home run and two RBIs Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers topped the Chicago Cubs 6-1. The homer was his second of the season. He ended the game with a .333 batting average.

Analysis: Taylor is 4 for 14 for the series, helping to make up for the loss of All-Star shortstop Corey Seager to a back injury. Taylor is 7 for 25 with two homers and four RBIs in six playoff games.
10/18/2017 Alex Avila, ChC, C
Alex Avila went 1 for 1 Tuesday as the Chicago Cubs fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-1. He ended the game with a 1.000 batting average.
10/18/2017 Andre Ethier, LAD, RF
Andre Ethier went 2 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-1. The homer was his first of the season. He ended the game with a .500 batting average.

Analysis: Ethier finished with two hits in his first start of this year's playoffs after he missed most of the season with a herniated lumbar disk.
10/18/2017 Kenley Jansen, LAD, P
Kenley Jansen did not allow a hit or walk in 1.0 scoreless inning as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 6-1 on Tuesday. Jansen struck out two, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.00 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Jansen has allowed one unearned run and two hits over seven innings with 12 strikeouts in six appearances this postseason.
10/18/2017 Sonny Gray, NYY, P
Sonny Gray allowed two runs - one earned - on one hit and two walks in 5.0 innings as the New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros 6-4 on Tuesday. Gray struck out four, ending the game with a 1.80 ERA and 0.60 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Making his first start in 12 days, Gray was far more effective than his brief and losing outing against the Indians in Game 1 of the ALDS. The in-season acquisition departed this one with two on and the game still scoreless, with both runners later crossing the plate. The next few days will determine whether this is his final appearance of the year, though he'll factor greatly in the Yankees' plans for 2018.

10/18/2017 David Robertson, NYY, P
David Robertson allowed one run on one hit and one walk in 1.0 inning as the New York Yankees defeated the Houston Astros 6-4 on Tuesday. Robertson struck out one, ending the game with a 3.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Robertson nearly wound up as the goat after serving up a three-run double to Yuli Gurriel that snapped a scoreless game in the sixth inning. It's one of the few failed outings he's had during a postseason in which he's 2-0 with a 1.64 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP over six appearances.

Analysis: Baez was held out of the starting lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS. He entered as a pinch-hitter and is now 0 for 20 with eight strikeouts in this postseason.
10/18/2017 Chase Utley, LAD, 2B
Chase Utley went 0 for 3 Tuesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 6-1. He ended the game with a .000 batting average.
10/18/2017 Jon Jay, ChC, CF

Analysis: McCullers was dynamite in his first start since Sept. 30, holding the Yankees' potent lineup to one hit until Aaron Judge reached him for a solo homer to begin the bottom of the seventh. A.J. Hinch pulled the right-hander immediately afterward, a move he's already taking heat for. If this series goes a full seven games, expect McCullers to play a role in some capacity.
10/18/2017 Tony Watson, LAD, P
Tony Watson did not allow a hit or walk in 0.2 scoreless innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 6-1 on Tuesday. Watson struck out one, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.00 WHIP on the season.
