2016 MLB playoffs schedule: 4 Division Series in action Friday

Get ready for 9-10 hours of playoff baseball

And on the fourth day of the Major League Baseball playoffs, we have wall-to-wall baseball with four games on the schedule, all eight remaining teams still in play in their four Division Series.

The American League Division Series got underway first, on Thursday, and their two games on Friday start before either National League Division Series opens.

The first game on Friday features the Texas Rangers trying to get even with the Toronto Blue Jays, with Yu Darvish on the mound after the pitcher had to watch during last year’s playoff run while recovering from Tommy John Surgery.

In Cleveland, we have a battle between former American League Cy Young Award winners, with David Price (2012) and the Boston Red Sox facing off against Corey Kluber (2014) and the Cleveland Indians.

Game 1 in Washington, D.C. features another battle of Cy Young winners, with prime strikeout artists Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals battling Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The nightcap features the juggernaut Chicago Cubs, winners of 103 games during the season, facing off against the hard-charging Wild Card Game winners, the San Francisco Giants, who are looking to make another even-year run.
