LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers will open their National League Division Series under the lights with a 7:31 p.m. PT game on Friday in Game 1, and a 6:08 p.m. Game 2 on Saturday, getting the late slot both days.
All games of the NLDS, as well as the entire National League playoffs, will be televised by TBS.
MLB on Sunday night unveiled start times for playoff games through Saturday, which covers the wild card games as well as the first few games of each division series. There are four games on Friday, with the Dodgers — the only home team on the west coast, with Washington, Cleveland, and Houston also hosting games — getting the latest slot.
Last year, every game of the Cubs-Giants NLDS was scheduled later than the Dodgers-Nationals series. This year, the tables have turned.
The Dodgers will host the winner of Wednesday’s National League wild card game between the Diamondbacks and Rockies. The remaining game times for the division series will be announced later in the week, likely once the wild card games are over and the division series matchups finalized.
