After a grueling 162 games and six months, Major League Baseball’s postseason is upon us.

The postseason began on Oct. 5 with the American League wild-card game between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, followed by the National League wild-card game a day later between the St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

The World Series begins on Oct. 26 with a potential Game 7 scheduled for Nov. 3, its latest since 2009.

The ALDS starts Thursday, Oct. 7 followed by a quadruple-header Friday with the two NL series getting underway. The ALCS starts Oct. 15 while the NLCS begins a day later and can run as late as Oct. 23 and Oct. 24, respectively.

The team with the better record will have home-field advantage in the World Series, played in a 2-3-2 format.
