Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 06, 2013
The race is on in MLB Baseball. Only 20 games remain in this year’s 162-game regular season, which ends September 29, 2013.
Last Tuesday, the postseason schedule was announced, calling for the first National League Wild Card Game to be played on Tuesday, October 1. The AL Wild Card is set for the next day on October 2. The NL Division Series begins on October 3, while the AL’s version takes the field Friday, October 4, 2013.
Game One of the 109th World Series is scheduled for Wednesday, October 23, in the ballpark of the American League champions. That likely means an October finish to the season, as Game Seven would be played on Halloween.
Meanwhile, the do-or-die battle to make the postseason is heating up in both leagues. In the AL East, the Boston Red Sox are seven games up on the Tampa Bay Rays, with the Yankees and Orioles chasing the wild card. The AL Central Detroit Tigers are seven games up on the Cleveland Indians, with the Kansas City Royals only two games back.
And in the AL West, the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics are tied at 80 wins each, with the Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners battling it out for the Wild Card.
In the NL Central Division, another nail-biter: the St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds trail the Pittsburgh Pirates in the standings, but are only one and two games back, respectively. In the West, the Los Angeles Dodgers are 13 games up on the Arizona Diamondbacks, with the Colorado Rockies four games back.
And in the NL East, the Atlanta Braves are 13 games up on the Washington Nationals, with the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies battling it out for the postseason.

Each NL Division Series will begin on Thursday, October 3. The first full slate of Division Series games, featuring the two AL Division Series openers and a pair of NLDS Game Two’s, will take place on Friday, October 4. The Division Series will run from October 3 – 10, 2013.
