Let's take a look at the Wild Card and NLDS schedule.
Win or go home!
In the NL Wild Card, the Cubs face the Pirates in Pittsburgh at 8PM ET on Wednesday.
This game also features a likely Cy Young winner, as Jake Arrieta will look to continue his masterful second half and knock out the Cubs' division rivals.
After those Wild Card games are settled, we enter into the Division Series. Each series is a 5-game set, with the team with home field advantage playing host in games 1, 2, and 5.
Both sets in the National league follow the same schedule of games.
Game 1 - Friday [@ LA/St. Louis]
Game 2 - Saturday [@ LA/St. Louis]
Game 3 - Monday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago]
Game 4 - Tuesday [@ NY/Pittsburgh or Chicago]
