Here Are The Updated Division Series Start Times

6 Comments

The rain played havoc with the Division Series schedule over the weekend and so it would be understandable if you have no idea when games in the three remaining series are to be played. Thankfully, MLB has people working on that.

Today is simple. It breaks down like this:

  • Nationals @ Dodgers Game 3: 4:08PM EDT;
  • Indians @ Red Sox Game 3: 6:08PM EDT;
  • Cubs @ Giants Game 3: 9:38PM EDT

Tomorrow, however, things get kind of complicated, as the schedules changes depending on how many games are actually required. If there are three games necessary tomorrow (i.e. the Red Sox and the Giants both win today), it breaks down like this:

  • Indians @ Red Sox Game 4: 2:08PM EDT
  • Nationals @ Dodgers Game 4: 5:05PM EDT;
  • Cubs @ Giants Game 4 8:40PM EDT

If there are only two NLDS games required (i.e. the Giants win and the Red Sox lose), the Indians-Sox obviously falls off the schedule and the other two games proceed at the above-stated times. If, however, there are two games required and one is an ALDS game (i.e. the Red Sox win and the Giants lose) the times change a bit:

  • Indians @ Red Sox Game 4: 3:08PM EDT
  • Nationals @ Dodgers Game 4: 8:08PM EDT

After that, it’s all “IF NECESSARY” stuff. Wednesday would be just one game as the NL teams would be traveling far:

  • Red Sox @ Indians Game 5: 6:08PM EDT

Thursday:

  • Dodgers @ Nationals Game 5: 5:05PM EDT
  • Giants @ Cubs Game 5: 8:40PM EDT

Please study this post well. There will be a test later and it will count in your final grade.

Chris Paddack loses no-hit bid in eighth inning vs. Marlins

Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.

Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.

The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.

Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.

Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
