The playoffs continue, and we could see a few (or all!) teams advance to the LCS today.

On tap today:

Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins in Houston (Braves lead 2-0), 1:08 CT on FS1

The Braves still have yet to lose a game this post-season, but Sixto Sanchez may give the Marlins their best shot to take a game. The rookie tossed five shutout innings in his post-season debut last week, and he will go against Kyle Wright, who is making his post-season debut today.

Oakland Athletics vs. Houston Astros in Los Angeles (Astros lead 2-1), 2:35 CT on TBS

Old friend Zack Greinke has been dealing with arm soreness, but had no structural damage and will get the start today. The Astros seem to be playing with a chip on their shoulder and can finish off the A’s today, and it will be up to Frankie Montas to extend the series.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees in San Diego (Rays lead 2-1), 6:10 CT on TBS

Alex Rodriguez is tired of the Yankees “trying to outsmart the Ivy Leaguers”, but the Ivy Leaguers have a lead in this series. They’ll try another one of their egg-head moves by having Ryan Thompson make his first career post-season start as an opener, while rookie Jordan Montgomery goes for the Yankees.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. San Diego Padres in Arlington (Dodgers lead 2-0), 8:08 CT on MLB Network

Slam Diego was fun, but it may all end today if they can’t get a win against the Dodgers. It will be a pair of rookies going tonight with Dustin May for the Dodgers and Adrian Morejon for the Padres.
