MLB playoff bracket 2021: Updated TV schedule, scores, results for the Division Series

The two wild-card matchups are done. Now all the postseason teams will be taking the field.

The Red Sox defeated their rival Yankees in the AL wild-card game to set up a match against the Rays, who finished the 2021 regular season as the top team after winning the 2020 AL pennant. The Dodgers prevailed in a low-scoring affair against the Cardinals in the NL wild-card game with a walk-off homer to move on to the NLDS to face the NL West champion Giants.

The remaining division series matchups each bring plenty of intrigue. The Braves, once based in Milwaukee, will return to Wisconsin to take on the Brewers in a battle of the East and Central division champions. On the American League side, the Astros and White Sox will meet in the playoffs for the first time since the 2005 World Series, when the Astros were in the National League.
