A pair of pivotal LCS games are on tap for Wednesday

The MLB postseason continues on Wednesday with two games for perhaps the last time. The ALCS will have to go the distance while the NLCS goes at least six games, or else it's all single-game playoff days from here on out.

So if you're wondering "What baseball playoff games are on today?" know this: There are two games scheduled for today, Wednesday, Oct. 20.

Note: All times are ET. Times and broadcast outlets are subject to change.

MLB Playoff Games on TV Today

Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox, 5:08 p.m. on FS1
ALCS Game 5, series tied 2-2
HOU: LHP Framber Valdez (0-0, 7.71 ERA)

BOS: LHP Chris Sale (0-0, 14.73 ERA)

These starters faced off in Game 1 and each threw just 2 2/3 innings. However, each team can feel more comfortable emptying their bullpen with a day off before playing Game 6 in Houston. Don't be fooled by Boston's ninth-inning implosion on Tuesday, these teams are evenly matched.

Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers, 8:08 p.m. on TBS
NLCS Game 4, Braves lead 2-1

LAD: LHP Julio Urías (1-0, 3.60 ERA)

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts got flak for using Urías in relief during Game 2, and now he will turn to the southpaw on Wednesday instead of opting for another bullpen game. All three games this series have been determined by a run, so this really has the makings of a classic.
