The 2011 MLB postseason has given us three winner-take-all Game 5s during the Divisional Series, with both National League Divisional Series set to have their rubber-matches this evening.
The Milwaukee Brewers will have a chance to win their first playoff series since 1982 in front of their home crowd, where they had Major League Baseball's best record during the regular season. The only thing standing in their way is Ian Kennedy and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
In the other series, Albert Pujols looks to continue the Cardinals' remarkable chase for the NL pennant against the Philadelphia Phillies. It won't be easy seeing as they have to face Roy Halladay yet again, but if anyone can step up in a big moment, it's Pujols.
If everything plays out according to plan (at least my plan), we will have a chance to witness a grueling matchup for the NL pennant between two heated rivals in the Brewers and Cardinals.
The showdown would be epic, and here's why.
