The Postseason Major League Baseball season kicked off Friday with the all-new Wild Card series. MLB uses a 12-team playoff format for the first time in 2022, and eight teams participate in the best-of-three Wild Card series. Two teams have already advanced to LDS: The Guardians and Mariners. The Mariners’ Blue Jays knocked out a shock seven-round comeback on Saturday to sweep a best of three streak on the road. The Guardians took care of the Rays in two games, beating them on Saturday in a game of 2 of 15 runs.

Things are still not resolved on the National League side of the Wild Card series. The Cardinals and Mets host their second game Saturday night, in an effort to keep their seasons alive against Phillies and Padres, respectively.

The top two teams in each league (the Astros and Yankees in the MLS and the Dodgers and Braves in the National League) are greeted and will begin their post-season tours on the LDS Tour next week. Once teams ditch the Wild Card Series, the playoffs will resemble their traditional selves: Best of Five Division Series and then Best of Seven League Championship Series before the World Championship Best of Seven.

Below you’ll find the schedule and results for each postseason round.
