Cardinals 3, Pirates 5. Marlon Byrd and Carlos Beltran seemingly traded punches throughout. In the end it was Pedro Alvarez who struck the big blow with an eighth-inning single against Kevin Siegrist. (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)

Tigers 0, Athletics 1. The best pitching duel of the offseason saw Sonny Gray match Justin Verlander frame for frame. The only run scored in the ninth inning, as Stephen Vogt singled with the bases loaded. (Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)

Rays 4, Red Sox 7. David Price didn't have his best command and the Red Sox made him pay for it. That was particularly true for David Ortiz, who homered twice against Price. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)

Tigers 3, Athletics 2. The Tigers plated three runs early, and Max Scherzer made it stand. Each team's bullpen usage is worth noting: Jim Leyland had Joaquin Benoit get four outs, while Bob Melvin had Dan Otero and Sean Doolittle work an inning-plus apiece. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)

Dodgers 3, Braves 4. A ninth-inning stolen-base attempt called wrong foiled the Dodgers' comeback efforts. Mike Minor's solid start shouldn't get lost, however. Nor should Hanley Ramirez's near one-handed home run. (Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)

Rays 2, Red Sox 12. What started as a pitchers' duel turned into a blowout. Wil Myers deserves some of the blame after a defensive mistake, but Joe Maddon's long leash for Matt Moore ensured there would be no late-inning drama. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)

Pirates 7, Cardinals 1. Another boat race, but with a different winner. Gerrit Cole was strong in his first career postseason start. Lance Lynn, in his third, was less so, and paid for his location mistakes throughout the game. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

Dodgers 6, Braves 1. Clayton Kershaw dominated, fanning 12 batters over seven innings. Kris Medlen, on the other hand, struggled to keep the Dodgers off the scoreboard. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)

Pirates 1, Cardinals 9. Adam Wainwright dazzled while A.J. Burnett fizzled. Burnett didn't have his best control or command and paid for it. Wainwright, on the other hand, rode his curveball all day long and left the Pirates without an answer. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

Rays 4, Indians 0. Alex Cobb didn't have his changeup, but was able to adjust and prevail anyway. Credit to the Rays defense for some nifty work, and to the Rays offense for rebounding after a rough start against Danny Salazar. The Indians did outhit the Rays, they just couldn't plate a run.

Reds 2, Pirates 6. Dusty Baker's final game as Cincinnati manager saw him catch flak for leaving Johnny Cueto in the game too long. It didn't matter much, the Reds showed no ability to hit Francisco Liriano's wicked slider. (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)
