BOSTON (CBS) — Get ready for playoff baseball, Red Sox fans.
We knew the Red Sox are playing the Cleveland Indians in the ALDS but now we can finally plan what’s becoming a fairly busy weekend in the Boston sports scene, as MLB announced the start times for Games 1-3 of the series:
Game 1: Thursday, October 6, 8:08 p.m. at Cleveland
Game 2: Friday, October 7, 4:38 p.m. at Cleveland
Game 3: Sunday, October 9, 4:08 p.m. at Boston
Games 4 and 5 of the Best of 5 series will be announced at a later time, if necessary.
Boston will send 22-game winner Rick Porcello to the mound in Game 1 in Cleveland, opposed by Indians righty Trevor Bauer (12-8, 4.26 ERA). Lefty David Price (17-9, 3.99 ERA) will toe the rubber for Boston in Game 2, with Corey Kluber (18-9, 3.14) going for the tribe.
The series shifts to Fenway Park in Boston on Sunday, but no Red Sox starter has been announced yet. Josh Tomlin (13-9, 4.40) will get the start for Cleveland.
Things could get tricky for Boston sports fans on Sunday, with Tom Brady set to make his first start of the season for the New England Patriots against the Browns in Cleveland, with kickoff set for 1 p.m..
Make sure you have some fresh batteries in your remote this weekend.
