The Braves take on the Reds tomorrow in Game 1 of the Wild Card Series, which is a best of three. That game will take place at 12:08 ET, featuring two Cy Young candidates — Max Fried and Trevor Bauer. It’s a bit puzzling that such a fantastic pitching matchup would get the short-end of the stick when it comes to time slots. However, Game 2 will see no change. The Braves will once again play the Reds at 12:08 ET on Thursday.
MLB has announced start times for each of the remaining Wild Card Series games.

Hopefully, the Braves will win both of those matchups, and there won’t be a Game 3. But if you look further down the schedule, you’ll see Game 3 is scheduled for 3:08 ET on Friday. We’ll see if that changes based on how many teams actually have to play a Game 3.
