N.L. Division Series Game 2, A.L. Division Series Game 1

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

All four division series are in action Friday.

Baseball!

Four games are on your baseball plate today, twelve or more hours of playoff games. Let's hope these games are more competitive and interesting than the ones that have gone thus far; the three winner-take all games (including the A.L. tiebreaker) and the two division series games played thus far have been boring and one-sided.

Here are all the particulars for this afternoon's and evening's games, which begin at noon CT.

Pirates/Cardinals, noon CT. Pitchers:
