Fall 2018 Day 6:
Results from Wednesday 17 October.
MLB
Boston Red Sox visit, defeat Houston Astros 8-runs-6
Los Angeles Dodgers host, defeat Milwaukee Brewers 5-runs-2

Winning and Scoring:
The 2018 American League Championship Series has become the first best-of-7 MLB playoff series in which the winning team scored seven or more runs in each of the first three (and now four) games of the series.

Century Celebration:
The last time that the Boston Red Sox led a best-of-7 MLB playoff series 3-games-1 (as they now do against the Houston Astros) was against the Chicago Cubs in the 1918 World Series, en route to a six-game victory.

Brewing a Precedent:
The last MLB/NBA/NHL team to trail a best-of-7 playoff series WLWLL @ HHVVV (as the Milwaukee Brewers do after 2018 NLCS Game 5) but win the series was the MLB St. Louis Cardinals, in the 2011 MLB Finals against the Texas Rangers. So it is that Milwaukee finds a favorable paradigm from the team which defeated Milwaukee in Milwaukee's only two previous best-of-7 MLB playoff series.

Four Digits:
Game 4 of the 2018 National League Championship Series was the 1000th best-of-7 format MLB playoff game.

Game Comeback of the Fall 2018 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Fall 2018 MLB playoff season thus far was achieved by the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Brewers at Milwaukee on 13 October. The Dodgers trailed Milwaukee 3-runs-nil after six full innings of 2018 National League Championship Series Game 2, but rallied for the victory. In the history of best-of-7 MLB playoff games since 1905, inclusive, road teams down three runs after six full innings had a game record of only 6-76 (.079).

Game Comeback of the Spring 2018 Season:
The in-game comeback of the Spring 2018 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Houston Rockets against the Warriors at Golden State on 22 May. Houston trailed Golden State 80-pts-70 after three quarters of their 2018 NBA Western Conference Finals Game 4, but rallied for the victory. In the history of best-of-7 NBA playoff games since 1947, inclusive, road teams down ten points after three quarters had a game record of only 1-75 (.013).

Series Comeback of the Spring 2018 Season:
The in-series comeback of the Spring 2018 NHL/NBA playoff season thus far was achieved by the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Boston Celtics in the 2018 NBA Semifinals round. Cleveland trailed 2-games-nil and 3-games-2 without home-court advantage at separate times in the series, but prevailed. The Cleveland series victory reduced the Boston best-of-7 NBA playoff series record to 37-1 in the wake of a 2-games-nil series lead.
