2019 Dodgers Playoff Schedule: The Road to the World Series

Your up-to-date source for all things postseason for the LA Dodgers

162 games have come and gone. The Dodgers won the most games in the National League (and the most in the history of the franchise), and missed the best record in baseball by one game.

That record assures them home field advantage through the National League Championship Series / NL Pennant. Moreover, it assures them home field over any American League not called the Houston Astros in the World Series.

Here is how postseason play lines up as of 10/1/2019.

All times are in PST.
