Wild Card Round
San Diego Padres (5) (4) at New York Mets
These Novenas have had six meetings throughout the season and the Californians have had four of those duels, including two of the last three in The Big Apple.
Philadelphia Phillies (6) St. Louis Cardinals (3)
The Kings of the National League Central begin this series as favorites, but face a ninth-seeded team that has won four of the seven times they have met.
Seattle Mariners (5) at Toronto Blue Jays (4)
The Canadiens finished second in the AL East and with more than 90 wins, they clinched at least the wild card round at home against the Mariners, who returned to the postseason after a multi-year absence.
The Mariners have dominated the year series with a record of five wins and two losses, but what stands out is their streak of winning their last five, including a four-game home streak last July.
Tampa Bay Rays (6) at Cleveland Guardians (3)
They’ll be following this series with great interest, especially in New York, not for the simple fact that their rival will be here, but for their outstanding accounts in Florida and what better opportunity to collect them than in the postseason.
For this, the Rays have to come before their series at Progressive Field, where they lost two of three games in late September, so this is a good example of what can be enjoyed in this clash.
