The MLB postseason bracket is set — here's the schedule for the first two rounds

Baseball’s postseason is upon us. With the St. Louis Cardinals clinching the NL Central on the season’s final day, our playoff bracket is set. The Milwaukee Brewers are heading to the wild-card game in D.C. The Cardinals are heading to Atlanta for the National League Division Series.

And every team is hoping they can pull off 11 October victories — or 12, if they’re a wild-card team — and raise a World Series trophy.

That march begins this week, as the wild-card games start Tuesday and the division series start Thursday. Here’s a rundown of the matchups, schedules, game times and where to watch on TV. We’ll update with more information as soon as it’s available.
