Red Sox, Astros, Brewers claim wins in division series games

After five hours and 164 games the Cubs had a lot of love and not enough runs

After five hours and 164 games the Cubs had a lot of love and not enough runs

The MLB playoffs are set to tee off on, October 2nd.

Wednesday the Oakland A's will head into the Bronx as underdogs against the vaunted lineup of the New York Yankees.

After Last years devastating loss to the Astros in game 7 of the ALCS the Yankees hit the jackpot this past offseason. They talk National League bracket and Yankees vs.

In the addition, the A's missed the playoffs past year with a 75-87 record. There's a lot of excitement around this postseason, especially in the NL, where the Brewers, Rockies and Braves are in positions they haven't found themselves in in some time.

Milwaukee beat out the Chicago Cubs not only for the NL Central title, but also for the top spot in the entire National League. While both teams bring major bullpen questions into the series, the Dodgers unquestionably have two of the best arms in baseball: Clayton Kershaw and soon-to-be-household-name rookie Walker Buehler to push them to the next round.




The Cleveland Indians will take on the Boston Red Sox in a best of the seven American League Championship Series, taking the victor to the World Series. So, I guess, today: GO BREWERS AND DODGERS. Ugh. In the strike-shortened 1981 season, they played an AL Division Series that NY won 3-2.

Winners of the Wildcard Round will play the number one seed in the conference in the division series round. 24 against the Chicago White Sox.

The Boston Red Sox were the best team throughout the regular season, though not a team without holes. After last years lost to the Astros in the Division series the Redsox's hope to reach the championship for the first time since 2013. The two Division Series in the AL will include the same four teams as a year ago.

HOUSTON - George Springer and the Houston Astros picked up right where they left off last postseason, hitting four home runs to power past the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the American League Division Series.
