The Filides Forecast: World Series Predictions

Brian Ford has pitched very well in his last outing and has pitched decently against the Barnburners in the past, but the Barnburner bats may be too much if DiCrosta gets ejected, sometimes one run is all you need in these types of games.

Hai’chi wins series 2-0.
