The 2021 World Series is underway, and the Atlanta Braves have the series lead over the Houston Astros ahead of Wednesday night’s Game 2. The Braves took Game 1 on Tuesday night on the road. Jorge Soler hit a leadoff homer for Atlanta and the team never looked back. Game 2 is set for Wednesday night at Minute Maid Park, and Houston will try to even the series before the Fall Classic heads to Atlanta.

MLB used a 16-team postseason format during the pandemic-shortened 60-game season a year ago. This season they went back to the usual 10-team format. As a reminder, the three division winners in each league advanced directly 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 league’s best record in the LDS. The LDS was a best-of-five, and the League Championship Series and World Series are both best-of-sevens.

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