Playoff Schedule Set for Orioles, Nationals
The Orioles play the New York Yankees on Sunday in the first game of the ALDS.
With an impressive 5-1 win over the Texas Rangers in the one-game wildcard playoff on Friday evening, the Orioles are now set to take on the New York Yankees in the five game American League Division Series. The ALDS begins Sunday at Baltimore at 6:07 p.m. on TBS.
Meanwhile, the Nats wrapped up the top seed in the National League yesterday with a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, taking them to 98-64 on the season. They'll go on the road Sunday to face the winner of Friday's one-game wild card playoff between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Atlanta Braves.
The best-of-five National League Division Series will then come to Washington Wednesday for one to three games, depending on how many wins each team racks up. The winner of that round will face the winner of San Francisco and Cincinnati for a World Series berth.
Below, find the playoff schedule for the first two rounds of the posteason. Many of the starting times have yet to be determined, and games marked with an asterisk won't be played if the series has already been decided.
