The 2021 MLB playoffs are reduced to four teams, with the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves currently fighting in the League Championship Series. In the NLCS, the Braves hold a 2-0 lead over the defending World Series champions Dodgers, with Atlanta winning back-to-back wins. The Red Sox have won two Grand Slams en route to an ALCS Game 2 victory over the Astros on Saturday afternoon, tying their series at 1-1.

MLB used a 16-team postseason format in the pandemic-shortened 60-game season a year ago. This season, they return to the usual 10-team format. As a reminder, the three division winners of each league have direct access to the League Division Series. The non-division winners with the two best records met in the Wild Card Game, with the winner advancing to face the team with the best league record in the LDS. The LDS was a best-of-five, and the League Championship Series and World Series are both best-of-seven.

Below is the full 2021 MLB Playoff schedule. All games on ESPN, Fox, FS1 and MLB Network can be streamed through fuboTV (try for free).
