There is always something special in my mind when we get to see regional World Series match-ups or even better, two teams from the same city. We havent had that kind of a showdown since 2000 when the Yankees beat the Mets in five games in a World Series that pitted the Bronx against Queens in the battle of New York. This year though, there are plenty of great possibilities now that were down to the final 10 clubs. The cities of Washington and Baltimore have a great rivalry, though they only ever meet in inter-league play. The Orioles have been in the World Series six times, but not since 1983, and have won three and lost three. Washington has been to the Fall Classic three times, but not since their original incarnation. They won in 1924 over the New York Giants, lost in 1925 to Pittsburgh and then lost again in 1933 to the Giants. Next to the Cubs, Washington has the longest World Series famine. If a Beltway series doesnt do it for you, how about Kansas City against St. Louis in a rematch of the I-95 series of 1985. The Royals won their one and only World Series title that year beating the Cardinals in seven games. Dick Howsers crew also became the first team to win the ALCS and the World Series when rallying from a 3-1 deficit. They beat the Blue Jays in the American League Championship series. Bay area rivals Oakland and San Francisco met in the infamous Earthquake series of 1989. Roughly half an hour before Game 3 was to begin at San Francisco, the Loma Prieta quake as it was known struck. The damage was such that the series wasnt resumed for 10 days with the As ultimately winning it in four straight. Dave Stewart of the As won Games 1 and 3 and last week 25 years later, was named general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, working with then-As manager Tony La Russa. That was the first cross-town series involving two teams from the same metropolitan area since 1956, when the Yankees played the Brooklyn Dodgers. Not only that but it was just the third not involving a New York team. The Dodgers and As - while not exactly next door neighbours - are still West Coast rivals. Theyve met twice in the World Series. Oakland won in 1974 to cap its three-peat run and the Dodgers pulled off what was considered a sizable upset in 1988, the year of Kirk Gibsons incredible game-winning pinch hit homer off Dennis Eckersley. The Dodgers havent been back to the Fall Classic since. There are other potential match-ups that have lots of history attached including Tigers-Cardinals and Pirates-Orioles. But the one Im hoping for has never happened before. That would be the Angels versus the Dodgers. Trout vs. Puig, Kershaw vs. Weaver, Mattingly vs. Scioscia, and on and on it goes. Wild Card watch The American League Wild Card game goes Tuesday night with Oakland at Kansas City. Sixteen-game winning lefty Jon Lester will be on the hill for the As against righty James Shields, who won 14 for the Royals. The winner will open an ALDS series Thursday at Anaheim against the Angels, while Detroit opens at Baltimore the same day. The National League Wild Card game goes Wednesday night at Pittsburgh with the Pirates hosting the Giants. Edinson Volquez (13-7) will face San Franciscos ace Madison Bumgarner (18-10). The winner will play at Washington Friday, while the Cardinals take on the Dodgers Friday at Chavez Ravine in the other NLDS. For whatever its worth, I like the Royals to beat the As simply because they are at home and the Giants to beat the Pirates because of Bamgarner, who is also one of the better hitting pitchers in the National League. Canadian Content It was great to see Canadian Justin Morneau of the Rockies win the National League batting title with a .319 average. But I do wish he had done more than just pinch-hit once over the final two games. Nationals No-No It was as exciting as it was unexpected to see the Nationals Jordan Zimmermann pitch that no-hitter at home on the final day of the season on Sunday, blanking Miami 1-0. It was the fifth no-no in history to end a season and first no-hitter in Washington since Bobby Burke did the honours back in 1931. You might have thought though that skipper Matt Williams, with the post-season looming, would have pulled Zimmermann after five or six innings. But as fate would have it, Zimmermann took a liner off his pitching shoulder and suffered a bruise in his previous start. In this start against Miami, working on seven days rest, Williams decided to let Zimmermann go for it, and thanks to that incredible circus catch by Steve Souza Jr. in left centre in the ninth to end the game, the current edition of the Washington Nationals picked up the first no-hitter in this franchises history. That leaves San Diego as the only team without a no-hitter. Adidas Nmd Herre Udsalg .

LOS ANGELES -- The ovations started after the Los Angeles Kings third goal in 16 minutes to open Game 4 of the Western Conference final, and the home crowd eventually serenaded its team off the ice for intermission. The low-scoring Kings have become the Stanley Cup playoffs highest-scoring team. This defensive powerhouse is shutting down the Chicago Blackhawks big stars while pushing the defending champions to the verge of elimination. Yep, the Kings deserved a hand -- even if they insist they still havent anything thats really worth cheering. Jake Muzzin, Marian Gaborik and captain Dustin Brown scored in a dominant first period, and Los Angeles beat Chicago 5-2 Monday night to take a 3-1 series lead. Muzzin and Drew Doughty each had a goal and an assist, and Jonathan Quick made 22 saves as the Kings moved to the brink of their second trip to the Stanley Cup Final in three seasons with their third straight win over the defending champion Blackhawks. Gaborik, who joined the Kings on March 5 and immediately catalyzed their offence, took a momentary break from the businesslike atmosphere of the Kings dressing room and just plain marveled what Los Angeles has accomplished this spring. "To come into every game with that confidence, to have that mojo that you can win every game, thats the difference," Gaborik said. "Its great to come to a team like this and be part of a winning culture." Tanner Pearson added an empty-net goal for the Kings, who have been to the NHL finals just twice in franchise history, winning their only title in 2012. One year after Los Angeles lost the conference finals in five games to Chicago, the Kings have their own chance to close it out in five. Game 5 is Wednesday in Chicago. "Were not looking ahead," Kings forward Justin Williams said. "Chicago, I believe theyve been down 3-1 before. Every team has been through experiences that have made them better. Stanley Cup championship teams like Chicago and us, weve been through a lot. Weve persevered through a lot, and theyre down 3-1, were trying to squash them, and theyre trying to get some life." Two days after the Kings gritted out a 4-3 victory over Chicago in Game 3, they won again at Staples Center by scoring three goals on their first six shots of Game 4, capping an incredible three-game offensive performance by the lowest-scoring NHL team to make the postt-season.dddddddddddd. After trailing 2-0 late in the second period of Game 2, Los Angeles scored 13 goals in less than 100 minutes, capped by a dominant first period in Game 4. Muzzin scored on a power play. Gaborik added his 10th goal of the post-season off Duncan Keiths turnover. Brown banged a puck into an open net for another power-play goal, his first score since Game 7 of the first round against San Jose. Cue the standing ovations. Brandon Saad and Bryan Bickell scored and Corey Crawford stopped 16 shots for the Blackhawks, who didnt get rolling until they trailed 4-0 late in the second period. "I dont think we played that poorly," Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. "We made some mistakes, and their confidence snowballed on us. Next thing you know, it doesnt matter how hard you work or how many shifts you spend in their zone. If the bounces arent going your way, its tough to get back in a game like this. Were going to find a way to get those bounces again and get things rolling our way. Well work ourselves out of it." The Blackhawks escaped a 3-1 hole in the second round against Detroit last season, but thats the only time in franchise history Chicago has rallied from that deficit -- and the Kings are an entirely different post-season challenge. "Its not a good position to be in," said Patrick Kane, who assisted on Bickells goal for his first point in the series. "Coming into this series, wed be lying if we thought wed be in this position, but it happens. Got no one to blame but ourselves, so were the only ones that can get ourselves out of it." After their dominant opening period, the Kings kept pressing in the second, and Doughty put a long shot through traffic midway through the period. Doughty, the Kings leader in ice time, has goals in back-to-back games after scoring just once in the first 16 playoff games. Chicago finally beat Quick when Saad scored on a backhand. The Kings sat back on defence to start the third period, and Bickell got just his second goal in eight games when he jumped on a loose puck in the slot with 10:31 to play. NOTES: Chicagos power play went 0 for 3, dropping to 1 for 24 on the road in the post-season. ... The Blackhawks scratched F Brandon Bollig in favour of Peter Regin, who sat out Game 3 after Andrew Shaws return. ... Game 6 would be Friday at Staples Center. ' ' '
