The NLCS and ALCS MLB playoffs begin today with four teams all known to be powerhouses at the plate and with a great lineup of dominant pitching. What makes this year’s playoffs even more competitive is that two of those clubs are returning to the divisional championships from last year. Will the new teams be able to knock them out?
The MLB matchups start today with the Milwaukie Brewers hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers at 8:09 PM Eastern Time on FS1. Gio Gonzolas will start for the Brewers and Kershaw for the Dodgers. All NLCS games will air on FS1 with the exception of Saturday’s game which will be on FOX.
Then, on Saturday the Red Sox host the returning World Series Champion Houston Astros in the ALCS playoff series. Chris Sale will start for the Sox and last year’s ALCS MVP Justin Verlander for the Astros. That game begins at 8:09 PM ET on TBS, who will host the entire ALCS series.
You can get FS1, FOX and TBS on streaming platforms such as DirecTV Now, Hulu Live TV, Fugo, PlayStation Vue, Sling, YouTube TV. From what we understand you can also stream the playoffs on MLB.TV by authenticating your TV service or by paying the monthly fee of $25.
The MLB Postseason is presented by YouTube TV and Google Assistant.
