MLB: Game One-San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

More playoffs! Here is today’s lineup:

Miami Marlins at Atlanta Braves in Houston (Game 1), 1:08 CT on FS1

The Marlins are the little team that could, rebounding from a 105-loss season, overcoming an outbreak and getting past the Cubs to the NLDS. The Braves are pretty darn good though, having not giving up a run yet this post-season. Ataltanta lefty Max Fried and his killer curveball take on Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara.

Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics in Los Angeles (Houston leads 1-0), 3:37 CT on TBS

The Astros made all of America mad by taking Game One, but Oakland has a chance to even the series up today. Former Royals prospect Sean Manaea gets the start against Houston lefty Framber Valdez.

New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays in San Diego (Yankees lead 1-0), 7:10 CT on TBS

Are the Yankees actually the good guys? I’ll still be rooting for the Rays, who are actually the higher seed but still feel like underdogs against the Mighty Yankees. Rookie Deivi Garcia becomes youngest pitcher to ever start a game for the Yankees in the post-season, and he faces Rays right-hander Tyler Glasnow.

San Diego Padres at Los Angeles Dodgers in Arlington (Game 1), 8:38 CT on FS1

The fun Slam Diego Padres take on the behemoth that is the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres included prospect pitcher Ryan Weathers to their post-season roster, and he could become the third player to make his MLB debut during this post-season. Mike Clevinger returns from injury to start Game One for the Padres against Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler.
