The 2022 Major League Baseball postseason has another full day of action on the schedule with four LDS games on Saturday. The Phillies and Padres have 2-1 NLDS leads over the Braves and Dodgers, respectively, and will look to end the best-of-five streak at home. In the American League, the Mariners are playing their first playoff game in 21 years, and they need to win against the Astros to keep their season alive. Guardians-Yankees, meanwhile, head to Cleveland for Game 3, with the series tied 1-1.

This is the largest playoff field ever for a full 162-game season You can read more about the new format here. Four teams — the Mets, Cardinals, Blue Jays and Rays — were eliminated in last weekend’s best-of-three wild card series.

The 2022 MLB postseason will extend beyond October. Game 4 of the 2022 World Series is scheduled for Tuesday, November 1st, so that’s a guaranteed date. Game 7 of the World Series is scheduled for Saturday, November 5th. It would be the newest World Series game in MLB history. With the first week of the regular season being postponed due to the owners lockout, three make-up games were added to the end of their schedule for each team.

Here are some other things to know about this year’s postseason schedule:

  • The best-of-three wild card series is played over three consecutive days. There is no rest day within the series.
  • There are no days off between LDS Games 4 and 5 or between LCS Games 5 and 6. Travel could become a nightmare should teams meet on opposite shores.
  • The World Series follows the usual 2-3-2 format with rest days between Games 2 and 3 and Games 5 and 6.
