We’re going to focus in on the three Hogs in postseason action this year. Logan Forsythe and the Dodgers are still awaiting their opponent from the wild card round. Dallas Keuchel and Andrew Benintendi will face off against each other in the ALDS. Keuchel will get the start in Game 2 of the series. With it being a five game series, that will probably be your only chance to see Keuchel and Benintendi square off. If your team is knocked out, or you just want to see some Hogs play playoff baseball the schedule of the teams is here.

The highlight of the weekend was AJ Derby getting his first career touchdown and just look at this freaking catch!
It was the first touchdown of his career and part of a career day for him that had 4 catches and 75 yards. He wasn’t the only TE out catching touchdowns. Hunter Henry made a grab that was originally called incomplete, but was challenged and ruled a touchdown.
Other big performances included Alex Collins, who had a 50 yard run, but also fumbled again. Darius Philon registered a sack but unfortunately had three penalties as well. Martrell Spaight had eight tackles in his second straight start and was one of the best performers on defense for Washington. Here’s a list of what other former Hogs did this weekend.
