MLB Playoff Schedule 2020: Up to date bracket, dates, instances, TV channels for ALCS, NLCS


The MLB postseason goes into the championship rounds.

In the American League, the Rays are campaigning to overthrow their "underdog" label and meet the 2017 world champion, Astros, in the ALCS. The Rays took the fight to the Yankees, with Mike Brosseau delivering the final blow to Aroldis Chapman and the Bombers over the home run and approaching for a near-headshot by the Yankee in September.

Even without Justin Verlander, the Astros made the athletes in the ALDS relatively easy work and sent their AL West rivals in four games. The Houston offensive came alive with 33 runs against the A & # 39; s.

It's getting very interesting in the National League: The Braves have exorcized the playoff demons with their streak victories over the Reds and Marlins and are starting to look like championship contender Atlanta has been dubbed Tabs for the past few years. The Braves face a tough matchup at the Dodgers, who look like nothing's going to stop them on their way to another World Series berth: The Dodgers, armed with dominant pitching and an explosive line-up, finally want that elusive World Series -Gain victory, that would be her first
