MLB Ready for the second season
(AP) — Baseball’s post season gets underway tomorrow night in Kansas City as the Royals play host to the Athletics in the American League Wild Card game. The winner of the game advances to the AL divisional playoffs against the Los Angeles Angels.
The pitching for tomorrow night’s game is set with James Shields taking the mound for the Royals against Oakland’s Jon Lester.
On Wednesday, the Giants send 18-game winner Madison Bumgarner to the hill against Edinson Volquez and the Pirates in Pittsburgh. The winner gets the Washington Nationals, who host the first two games of their National League Division Series.
Later this week, the Los Angeles Dodgers will take on St. Louis in an NL division series and Baltimore will play Detroit in an AL division series.
