After falling to the St. Louis Cardinals in six games in last season’s National League Championship Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to take the next step in this year’s postseason.
With only 16 regular season games to go and the playoffs right around the corner, the 2014 MLB Postseason Schedule was released Thursday.
The National League Wild Card game will be on Wednesday, Oct. 1 and will be broadcast on ESPN. With a 2.5-game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NL West and tied for best record in NL, the Dodgers are on track to avoid the Wild Card game.
The NL Division Series will begin Friday, Oct. 3 and be played through Thursday, Oct. 9. Fox Sports 1 will broadcast the NLDS and MLB Newtork will also air games two and three.
The NLCS is scheduled to begin Saturday, Oct. 11 and if necessary, Game 7 will be played Sunday, Oct. 19. Game 1 and if necessary, Game 6, can be seen on FOX. The remaining games of the NLCS can be seen on Fox Sports 1.
The World Series begins on Tuesday, Oct. 21, and goes through Wednesday, Oct. 29, if a Game 7 is necessary. All World Series games are to be aired on FOX.
If the Dodgers make it to the World Series, Game 1 would not be at Dodger Stadium after the American League beat the National League in the 2014 All-Star Game by a score of 5-3. Dodger Stadium would host Game 3, Game 4 and if necessary, Game 5 from Friday, Oct. 24 through Sunday, Oct. 26.
