Major League Baseball has released its full 2013 postseason schedule.

According to Mark Newman of, the Wild Card games will be Oct. 2. The National League Divisional Series will begin the next day (Oct. 3), while the ALDS will begin Oct. 4.

The NL Wild Card game will take place first, followed by the AL Wild Card game. Both games will be aired on TBS.

Here's a look at the full schedule:

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.
