It’s a full day of playoff baseball with all four series taking place today. At 1:05 it is the Rays taking on the Astros in Game 1 of the ALDS. Tyler Glasnow takes on Justin Verlander from Minute Maid Park on FS1.

At 3:37 it is the Cardinals taking on the Braves in Atlanta with St. Louis up 1-0 after a Braves collapse in Game 1. Ronald Acuña Jr. has become a lightning rod of criticism with his team critical of his lack of hustle and the Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez upset with Acuña after how he circled the bases following a home run. Jack Flaherty goes against Mike Foltynewicz in Game 2 on TBS.

At 6pm CT the Twins will try to shake off their curse of losing to the Yankees in the post-season on Game 1 from Yankee Stadium. Lefty James Paxton goes for the Bronx Bombers against Twins pitcher Jose Berrios with the game airing on MLB Network.

Finally, at 8:30 CT, the Nationals will try to bounce back from a Game 1 6-0 beatdown to the Dodgers. In Game 2, Stephen Strasburg will try to limit Dodger bats against lefty Clayton Kershaw with the game airing on TBS.
