The National League will lead off each round. The divisional round will follow a 2-2-1 format, while the LCS will follow a 2-3-2 format.

While 18 of the 20 divisional games will air on TBS, two games will air exclusively on the MLB Network. The MLB Network will choose one game on Oct. 4 and Oct. 7.

The most ironic thing about the schedule is that if the World Series goes to a Game 7, it will take place on Halloween night. It would be the first time in MLB history that Game 7 would happen on Halloween.

The National League has won the last three World Series and five of the last seven.
