WASHINGTON -- On Tuesday, Major League Baseball announced the game times for the rest of both leagues' Division Series this week. If the Nationals are going to play in prime time, their series with the Cardinals will have to go a full five games.
Washington is currently scheduled to start Game 4 on Thursday at 4:07 p.m. ET, although that could get pushed back an hour if the Tigers finish off the A's on Tuesday or Wednesday, which would appear the likely outcome given Detroit's 2-0 series lead.
Game 5, if necessary, will take place Friday at Nationals Park with an 8:37 p.m. ET first pitch.
Both games will be broadcast on TBS. Wednesday's Game 3 -- another afternoon start at 1:07 p.m. -- will air on MLB Network.
