MLB playoffs schedule 2019: Full bracket, dates, times, TV channels for ALCS, NLCS

Sporting News — (Dan Bernstein)

The 2019 MLB playoffs began with a pair of appetizing wild-card matchups that followed intense races over the final weeks of the regular season. The Brewers and Nationals squared off in the NL, while the A's and Rays duked it out in their own winner-take-all contest in the AL.

Those games determined the full NLDS and ALDS brackets and set the stage for the rest of October.
