2011 NLDS Schedule: Phillies-Cardinals, Brewers-Diamondbacks Resume Play Tuesday

With the first two games in the books, the four teams competing in the 2011 NLDS will have a day off for travel before resuming play on Tuesday. 

The St. Louis Cardinals split their first two games in Philadelphia, which means they have a chance to clinch the series at Busch Stadium if they win the next two. That's easier said than done, of course, with the Philadelphia Phillies starting Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt in the next two games. All of the games between the Cardinals and Phillies will be broadcast on TBS.

Gm 5* STL @ PHI Fri Oct. 7 8:30 p.m. TBS

In the other series, the Milwaukee Brewers hold a commanding 2-0 lead over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Despite leaving the confines of Miller Park, they just need to win one more game to advance to the NLCS. Like all of the NDLS games, the entire series will be broadcast on TBS.

Arizona Diamondbacks Rotation For NLDS To Start With Kennedy

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson wasn't sure exactly who will start the first two games of the NLDS, according to MLB.com:

"Trust me, I'll think it all out when it's time," Gibson said. "I really will. There's so many numbers to look at -- home and road, ground ball/fly ball, strikeout rates, what kind of lineups you're up against, who holds runners better. There's a lot of different things that I'll think about it. We'll talk it out and go."

But the rotation lined up to have Ian Kennedy go in the first game, and Daniel Hudson in the second game, and Josh Collmenter will go for the third game. If there's a fourth game, Joe Saunders would start, which makes this a great time to reflect on the idea that Joe Saunders might start a postseason game this year, and Dan Haren won't. That's not a sentence you thought you'd read when the trade was made, nor in March of this year.

MLB Playoff Schedule: Times For NLDS Weekend Games Announced

After a wild final day of the regular season, the NLDS schedule has been set, and now, game times have been announced for Sunday's playoff openers.

The Philadelphia Phillies will open their series at home against the Cardinals, with game time set for 4:30 p.m. Eastern/3:30 p.m. Central on TBS. The Phillies own the best record in baseball, going 102-60 in the regular season. The Cardinals barely clinched a wildcard spot after they beat the Houston Astros and the Atlanta Braves lost to the Phillies on Wednesday night.

The Arizona Diamondbacks will take on the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park at 8:00 p.m. Eastern/7:00 p.m. Central on TBS. The Diamondbacks won the NL West pennant eight games ahead of the San Francisco Giants. The Brewers finished six games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals on the strength of a 21-7 August run.
