Turner Sports' 2.9 average overnight Nielsen rating through the first three days of it's MLB playoff coverage marks a 16 percent increase through the same period last year.
The three games played Sunday and aired across networks was up 18 percent over the comparable day last year, according to USAToday.com. The coverage was led by a 3.3 overnight for the New York Yankees' victory over the Baltimore Orioles in Game 1 of their American League Division Series, despite a 2 1/2-hour rain delay.
