Baseball’s postseason has a new three-game wildcard format, and Friday’s wildest Game 1 ended in a ninth inning with six runs from Philadelphia, helping the Phillies to a stunning comeback win over the Cardinals. In tonight’s Game 2, St. Louis faces elimination in what could be the final game for future Hall of Famers Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina. The Phillies send ace Aaron Nola to the mound and he’s fought off by Miles Mikolas. Game 2 begins today at 7:37pm CT (8:37pm ET) on ESPN2.

What is the Phillies-Cardinals Series schedule?

The Cardinals won the NL Central but ended up behind the other two division winners — the Dodgers in the NL West and the Braves in the NL East — so they need to play in the first round rather than rest on a bye. They started as No. 3 against the Phillies, who are the No. 6 final team to qualify for the National League playoffs.

Here’s the schedule for the Cards Phillies series. All games will be played at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

  • Game 1: Phillies 6, Cardinals 3 (Philadelphia leads, 1-0)
  • Game 2: Saturday at 7:37 p.m. CT (8:37 p.m. ET) on ESPN2
  • Game 3: Sunday at 7:37 p.m. CT (8:37 p.m. ET) on ESPN (if necessary)
