The first-ever wild-card series weekend in MLB is under underway. And today, as many as four teams might be dismissed.
Four best-of-three series will decide which clubs progress to the ALDS (against either the Houston Astros or the New York Yankees) and NLDS when the playoff field increases to 12 teams for the 2022 postseason (against either the Atlanta Braves or Los Angeles Dodgers).
The Saturday festivities kick off with the Cleveland Guardians vs. the visiting Tampa Bay Rays aiming to avoid elimination, then the Seattle Mariners looking to eliminate the Blue Jays in Toronto. Finally, the Philadelphia Phillies want to win the series against the Cardinals in St. Louis before the New York Mets attempt to prevent a home sweep against the San Diego Padres.
Follow the action below throughout the day for start times, pitching matchups, and starting lineups, as well as during each game for in-game updates and takeaways.
