The Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs came through exciting Wild Card games to complete the Division Series line-up.
Start times have been announced for games up until Sunday. Whilst this is the time of year when more Brits will be prepared to sacrifice sleep to watch late games, it’s good to see that six of the contests over the next few days are early starts and therefore during the evening for us in the UK.
