You’ll have a chance to watch ALCS and NLCS games Wednesday, which means double the opportunity to track your BUNT players throughout the day.
American League Championship Series
Series: 3-0 Tigers
Location: Comerica Park, 8 p.m. EST
On the hill: CC Sabathia vs. Max Scherzer
BUNT breakdown: CC Sabathia comes into Game 4 off an outstanding 153-PT complete game victory against the Orioles in the ALDS. He recorded nine strikeouts in the win. Before that, he also threw 8.2 innings in a 101-PT effort to beat the Orioles in the opening game of the ALDS on Oct. 7. Either way, Sabathia is the man you want on the mound and on your BUNT roster tonight if numbers mean anything.
Max Scherzer has 1,144 PTS this season and has made one post-season appearance so far this year, a no-decision (76 PTS) against the Athletics in the ALDS. He has Prince Fielder (2,223) and Miguel Cabrera (2,643) to support him and a 3-0 cushion in the series just in case anything goes wrong.

National League Championship Series
Location: Busch Stadium, 4 p.m. EST
On the hill: Matt Cain vs. Kyle Lohse
BUNT breakdown: Kyle Lohse (2,106 PTS) is the highest rated NL Pitcher in BUNT behind R.A. Dickey, the favorite to win the NL Cy Young - or Old Hoss Radbourne award at the Topps BUNTY’s. Lohse is coming off a no-decision against the Nationals in the NLDS, a 93-PT effort that saw him pitch 7 innings and strikeout 5. It was more fruitful for BUNT users than his 47-PT performance against the Braves in the NL Wildcard game where he still received the victory, but lasted only 5.2 innings and allowed 6 hits, 2 runs and 1 walk.
On the other side is Matt Cain, right behind Lohse on the NL Pitching leaders board with 2,044 PTS this season. Like Lohse, he also had a victory in a playoff game after throwing just 5.2 innings and scattering 6 hits, 3 runs and 2 walks in the effort for just 29 PTS.
BUNT NLCS studs (top players from each team in the game)
