MLB postseason schedule: How to watch the ALCS and NLCS

Yahoo Sports

Major League Baseball is down to its final four: the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers.

The National League Championship Series between the Brewers and Dodgers begins Friday, while the American League Championship Series between the Astros and Red Sox starts Saturday. The series give us the best two teams by record in each league, so it seems like a fitting matchup on each side.

It’s the Astros’ dangerously deep roster of hitters and pitchers against Boston’s star-studded group topped by Mookie Betts and Chris Sale. It’s the upstart Brewers and likely NL MVP Christian Yelich against the more-experienced Dodgers with Clayton Kershaw, Manny Machado and Justin Turner.
