2023 MLB playoff bracket: Scores, results, postseason schedule as Rangers vs. Astros start ALCS on Sunday

The League Championship Series is ready to get started in Major League Baseball’s 2023 postseason. It’s an all-Texas affair in the AL, with the Astros facing the Rangers. The Astros are in the ALCS for the seventh year in a row after beating the Twins in their ALDS matchup. The Rangers, meanwhile, knocked out the top-seeded Orioles with a three-game ALDS sweep. The Rangers finished with the same record as the Astros, but Houston held the tiebreaker to earn the AL West title and home-field advantage in this playoff matchup.

In the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies are back in the NLCS. The Phillies finished the Atlanta Braves’ season on Thursday night, taking Game 4 at Citizens Bank Park for a 3-1 series victory. The Phillies will face the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLCS starting Monday, squaring off against the team that took the Dodgers down in a definitive sweep. The fourth-seeded Phillies have home-field advantage against the sixth-seeded D-backs.

The playoff field started with 12 teams, but is now down to four. The Marlins, Brewers, Blue Jays and Rays were eliminated in the Wild Card Series.

Below is a look at the complete MLB playoff bracket, and the complete schedule for the playoffs. All games on Fox and FS1 will be streaming on fubo (try for free).
