MLB wild card series continues on Saturday

The playoffs continue with four Game 2s on Saturday.

MLB: New York Mets at Oakland Athletics Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

Even though the Dodgers do not play until Tuesday, the playoffs continue with a four-game slate on Saturday.

The Dodgers will play the winner of the Mets/Padres series, which could end today. Mets manager Buck Showalter opted not to use Jacob deGrom in Game 1 and handed the ball to Max Scherzer.

Scherzer allowed seven runs off of four homers and the Mets fell behind 1-0 in the series. With their backs against the wall, deGrom takes the mound today against Blake Snell. If the Padres come out on top, they are headed to the NLDS to take on the Dodgers.

The Guardians, Mariners and Phillies can wrap up their respective series’ with a win. All four of today’s games will be broadcast nationally on ESPN/ESPN2 and can be streamed through the ESPN app.
