The first Sunday of the 2016 MLB postseason features a full day of baseball with three Division Series on the schedule, including a pair of American League series that could end in sweeps.
But first, we start with a pair of teams who weren’t even supposed to be playing today. The Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers saw their Game 2 postponed by rain on Saturday, and will instead play at 1:08 p.m. ET on what was supposed to be an off day for travel. The off day Saturday might bode well for the Dodgers, who needed 12 outs from their bullpen in Friday’s Game 1 victory.
Up next are the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays shifting north of the border to the Rogers Centre. Toronto will try to complete a three-game sweep at home after a pair of road wins in Arlington. The Blue Jays have outscored the Rangers 16-4 in the first two games of the series.
Sunday’s finale is at Fenway Park in Boston in what might be the final game for David Ortiz, though not exactly how the Boston Red Sox might have planned. Boston lost the first two games of the best-of-five series in Cleveland, giving the Indians three chances to close out the series.
