No. 2 Athletics vs. No. 7 White Sox

The White Sox and A's are both struggling heading into this series. Chicago dropped eight of its last 10 games, while Oakland lost five of its last eight contests, and the A's are without star third baseman Matt Chapman.

The A's should benefit from home-field advantage after finishing tied for the most home wins in the majors, though the White Sox were one of the best road clubs this season.

No. 3 Twins vs. No. 6 Astros

Minnesota gets the luckiest draw, as the Astros are the only AL team to reach the playoffs with a losing record. Houston is without Justin Verlander, Roberto Osuna, Yordan Alvarez, and Josh James, but the Astros still possess plenty of firepower, especially in a short series.

This should be the most exciting series of the eight, as it's a battle pitting elite pitching against a powerful offense. Cleveland's pitchers posted the second-lowest ERA in the majors, and they'll face the fourth-highest scoring offense, and a unit that's now fully healthy.

It won't get better than Shane Bieber facing Gerrit Cole in Game 1.

No. 1 Dodgers vs. No. 8 Brewers

Milwaukee will be the biggest underdog during the wild-card round, especially with ace Corbin Burnes sidelined due to an oblique injury. Los Angeles finished the season with a .717 winning percentage, led MLB in runs, and allowed the second-fewest runs.

Even in a short series, the Dodgers getting bounced would be a major upset that could result in the team undergoing significant changes.

No. 2 Braves vs. No. 7 Reds

Atlanta is the high seed that may not actually be favored. No one wants to face the Reds, who begin the postseason after winning seven of their last 10, and they boast arguably the best rotation in the playoffs with Trevor Bauer, Luis Castillo, and Sonny Gray.

Bieber shelled for 7 runs in playoff debut vs. Yankees

  Bieber shelled for 7 runs in playoff debut vs. Yankees The New York Yankees shelled Cleveland Indians ace Shane Bieber in his playoff debut. New York roughed up Bieber - the favorite to win the AL Cy Young Award - for seven runs over 4 2/3 innings in Game 1 of their wild-card series at Progressive Field on Tuesday. It was Bieber's shortest start of the 2020 season. Bieber, who led the majors in wins, ERA, strikeouts, FIP, and WHIP during the regular season, did not allow more than three earned runs in any of his 12 starts this summer. He gave up only 14 earned runs all year.The seven runs also tied his career high, according to Sarah Langs of MLB.com.

The Braves are no slouch though. Atlanta dealt with several starting pitching injuries, but the club still scored the second-most runs in the majors with its top-tier lineup.

No. 3 Cubs vs. No. 6 Marlins

The Marlins were the ultimate road team this season, going 20-14 as visitors and 11-15 at home. So they should feel comfortable in Chicago.

Miami is playing with house money, and the Marlins' pitching staff could help them surprise a very flawed Chicago team and its stars that have struggled this year.

No. 4 Padres vs. No. 5. Cardinals

The Padres finished with the third-best record in the majors, but they had to settle for the NL's fourth seed because of MLB's bracket system.

San Diego could be dealing with two enormous starting pitching injuries, with Dinelson Lamet and Mike Clevinger potentially sidelined for the series. St. Louis, meanwhile, will likely be running on fumes after playing such a condensed schedule following the team's COVID-19 outbreak.





World Series

Is this finally the year the Dodgers win it all? Los Angeles has reached the World Series in two of the last three seasons, only to fall short. The Dodgers haven't won a championship since 1988.

'Can't fault the pitching': Reds waste ace Trevor Bauer's amazing start .
Trevor Bauer pitched a game for the ages Wednesday. Unfortunately for the Reds and Bauer, even a starting pitcher as durable and effective as him doesn’t go 13 innings in modern baseball. The 13th inning was when the Reds lost it – to the Atlanta Braves, 1-0 – in the first game of the National League wild-card series. Bauer went 7 ⅔ shutout innings. He allowed two hits, walked none and struck out 12. The 12 strikeouts were a Reds’ postseason record and the most by anyone in the postseason without allowing a walk.Start the day smarter.
