Game Times For NLDS Announced

Find out when and where to watch the Cubs in the NLDS.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Cubs will take on the Cardinals in the best-of-five National League Division Series starting tomorrow. Today, MLB announced the times of all five games.

Game 1 at Busch Stadium is Friday, October 9 at 5:30 Central Time

Game 2 at Busch Stadium is Saturday, October 10 at 4:30 Central Time.

Game 3 at Wrigley Field on Monday, October 12 will start at 5:00 pm Central if there are four games on that day. If either of the American League series are over by then, the Cubs will take on the Cardinals at 3:30 Central at Wrigley.

Game 4, if necessary, at Wrigley Field is scheduled for Tuesday, October 13 at 3:30 Central if both NLDS series go at least four games. If the Dodgers/Mets series is over by then, the game at Wrigley will start at 7:00 Central.

Finally, Game 5, if necessary, will be played on Thursday, October 15 at Busch Stadium at 3:30 Central if the Mets/Dodgers NLDS also goes five games and at 7:00 Central if it doesn't.

So the Cubs/Cardinals will always be the first NLDS game and will be followed by the Mets/Dodgers for as long as both teams are playing.

All NLDS games will be televised by TBS. Brian Anderson will handled the play-by-play call and he'll be joined in the booth by Joe Simpson and Dennis Eckersley. Matt Winer will be the on-the-field reporter.

If, sorry, when the Cubs advance to the NLCS, Game one of that series will be on Saturday, October 17 at a time yet to be determined. The NLCS will also be televised by TBS.
