The 2022 Major League Baseball playoffs persisted Wednesday as the Astros and Padres picked up key wins within the LCS spherical. The Astros struck first of their ALCS matchup in opposition to the Yankees, taking Game 1 at house at the back of a stellar get started from Justin Verlander. The Padres, in the meantime, evened the NLCS at 1-1 with a Game 2 win over the Phillies. ALCS Game 2 is ready for Thursday, whilst NLCS Game 3 can be performed Friday evening.

This is the biggest playoff box ever for a complete, 162-game season, and you’ll learn extra on the brand new layout right here. Eight groups — the Guardians, Dodgers, Braves, Mariners, Mets, Cardinals, Blue Jays and Rays — had been eradicated within the first two rounds. The Dodgers, Braves and Mets all gained a minimum of 100 video games this 12 months, however none of them gained a unmarried sequence within the postseason.

The 2022 MLB postseason will stretch past October. Game 4 of the 2022 World Series is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 1, so that could be a assured date. Game 7 of the World Series is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 5. It will be the newest World Series game in MLB historical past. Because the primary week of the common season used to be postponed because of the homeowners’ lockout, each and every group had 3 make-up video games added to the top in their time table. 

Here are every other issues to learn about this 12 months’s postseason time table:

  • The best-of-three Wild Card Series can be performed on 3 consecutive days. There isn’t any off-day throughout the sequence.
  • There aren’t any off days between Games 4 and 5 of the LDS, or between Games 5 and six of the LCS. Travel can be a nightmare must groups on reverse coasts meet.
  • The World Series follows the standard 2-3-2 layout with off-days between Games 2 and three, and Games 5 and six.
